SPACE PROJECT SST-6

Space Project SST-6

The Space Project SST-6 (Swiss Space Tourism-6) aims to allow me to go into space, beyond the Karman line, accompanied by 5 international space tourists, who will be chosen and selected by the main sponsor of the Space Mission SST-6. This flight is planned to be carried out using a New Shepard rocket, from Blue Origin, as from 2023. The financing and launch date of this Private Space Project will depend on the main sponsor, commercial partners and donations received. The goals to be achieved are:

  • Support scientific research in the space field.
  • Make members aware of the ecological aspect, the fragility of the planet and the environmental question.
  • Promote Space Tourism in the world.
  • Promote access to space for as many of its active members as possible.
  • Transmit the knowledge acquired in Space Tourism to as many people as possible.
  • To allow its Founding President to realize his dream which is to go into space during a suborbital flight.

Private Cosmonaut Training with Boris Otter in Star City, Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Moscow. This is the worst nightmare for all cosmonauts : the vestibular system training, on a rotating chair, turning at 30 rotations per minute and for 10 minutes for real Cosmonauts ! Don’t forget to move your head from left to right at every bip !
