Contrary to all of the other space crafts previously developed, including the Space Shuttle, the Lynx is equipped with a uniquely independent take-off and land system whereby the Lynx rocket engines can be switched off or on at will. There are no disposable carrier rockets, carriers and landings at sea. The Lynx simply departs from an elongated track at the Spaceport, and lands there after its flight.
You will find yourself sitting next to the pilot, going over the take-off checklist. You are under the large canopy, offering a spectacularly wide view. No sitting by the window for you! The four rocket engines are started. Your space travel has begun. You experience the powerful thrust that is so familiar to jet pilots and Formula 1 drivers. Before you know it, it is over and the Lynx is accelerating incredibly fast on the long track. Then you go up. Fast and steep. As you speed towards the sky, the enormous dome offers a spectacular view. Within one minute, you are breaking the sound barrier. Take-off alone is an extremely rare experience. The magnificent acceleration caused by the four rocket engines turn your Spaceport, either in the Caribbean or California, into a part of a miniature world.
