Fly to space from the UAE

New Dhs367,000 service to visit the stratosphere

Knowledge story, The Knowledge

Fancy exploring the stars? Dutch company the Space Expedition Corporation is offering UAE residents the opportunity to spend an hour in space. At Dhs367,000 (if you’re packing that sort of cash), you’ll get to hurtle towards zero gravity at a frankly horrifying 4,000kmph to an altitude of over 100km. Only one person per trip is permitted on the Lynx Mark II space shuttle. Aside from the expense, participants in the trip need to be over the age of 18 and less than two metres tall.

Blue and white walkways have been installed in more places
