PRIVATE ASTRONAUT TRAINING
A professional programme to prepare you for space travel
Astrophysicist, airline pilot and founder of the Space Training Academy Nancy Vermeulen is your main space instructor. She will prepare you physically and mentally for your first space flight. In collaboration with the Delft University of Technology and Desdemona Simulator Soesterberg, we have developed a unique training programme catered to the needs of the first-time space traveller.
As close as you can get to space without actually going
Not every student at our academy is an aspiring astronaut. Maybe you want to simulate the experience to decide whether you want to purchase a ticket to space. Or you have no intention of ever going to space, but want to try a zero-gravity flight or space simulation. Maybe you just want to learn all there is to know about space.
With our different modules, you can choose and combine the items that appeal to you.
Did you know that our founder Nancy Vermeulen also offers space-inspired keynotes and team building exercises?

Astronauts that fly up into space and marvel down at the earth, say that they are never the same person again after that. They experience what is called the “overview effect”. The evolution you go through as a person is literally a point of no return. Do you also want to get a taste of what it’s like to be a space traveller?
