Hello XCOR here…

Yep, I’ve got it. The call from XCOR Space Expeditions, formerly known as SXC Space Expedition Corporation but now owned by XCOR Aerospace.

I have got some interesting news about the progress of the spacecraft development. The first commercial suborbital flights will happen in Q4 2015 and not surprisingly on Lynx Mark I which is capable of flying up to 60Km.

The spacecraft will be completed in a few months from now and after that they will immediately start with test flights. The good thing is that XCOR has a long list of successful rocket engine fires so I bravely assume that they will not have any serious issues. At least not with the engines. So I wish their engineers a very good luck and I really hope everything will go as planned.

However, if you want to be an astronaut, you need to cross the Karman line, the official boundary of space at 100km. Unfortunately, this will be possible only with Lynx Mark II, which will take at least 2 more years to build.
