0 Gravity

Only a handful of space tourists have actually made it to the outskirts of our planet, but with companies like Virgin Galactic already taking down payments on seats, it’s only a matter of time before the cosmos become a sought-after vacation destination (for those who can afford it, of course). This project aims to offer riders a quick trip where they can briefly experience zero-gravity and get a peek of our planet.

The unmanned XLDron, equipped with an ultra high-bypass turbofan engine, carries a separate module (appropriately named Zero-Gravity) to an altitude of around 35,000 ft before the module’s rocket engine launches riders and crew beyond the atmosphere to an altitude above 100km.
