Train like a genuine astronaut and receive your first pair of "Astro Wings".
Experience a launch to the Moon, dock with the International Space Station "ISS", learn to land a spacecraft yourself and enjoy the magnificent view!
Soon, you too can experience space travel and call yourself a "Space Ranger".
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?
Welcome to Space, "Astronaut"!
The adventure starts the night before your travel with a "space dinner" at the Hilton Hotel Soestduinen (Soesterberg, the Netherlands) and a live interactive lecture that takes you into the world of astronomy and space travel.
The next day we welcome you at the "Desdemona Simulator" where your “Astronaut Trainer” Nancy Vermeulen will prepare you to travel to great heights!
The training consists of two parts:
PART 1: Travel to the Moon, dock with the International Space Station "ISS" and learn to land a spacecraft yourself.
After lunch we continue with PART 2: A complete simulation of a suborbital commercial spaceflight.
This is the closest simulation that exists of a real space flight.
It is one of the modules of the complete private astronaut training, but you can also book it separately.
Are you ready to take the challenge?
