About the Lynx Suborbital Space Vehicle
Incredible Adventures introduces you to the Lynx,
XCOR Aerospace's entry into the suborbital space transportation
market. As XCOR's third generation of rocket-powered vehicles, Lynx
is a revolutionary vehicle using non-toxic propellants: kerosene
and liquid oxygen. After thousands of test-firings, XCOR's engines
have proven themselves to be durable, long lasting and among the
safest in the industry.
Lynx incorporates many safety features. The liquid
propellant rocket engines can be shut off in an emergency, or restarted,
if necessary. In the event of an emergency, it can land just like
an airplane. Like commercial jet transports, Lynx covers its engines
with containment rings to protect the vehicle and crew. Most rockets
do not use this sort of safety system. Finally, the simplicity of
the Lynx's design provides additional safety margins because fewer
things can go wrong.
The canopy of the Lynx provides a majestic view of
Earth and inky blackness of space. Sitting in the co-pilot's seat
beside the astronaut-pilot, you gaze upward, forward, and on either
side. The Lynx provides you with an intimate and immediate experience
of going where so few have gone before - the edge of space on a
suborbital space vehicle.
