THE GALACTIC SUITE SPACEPORT WILL BOAST
This innovative launching system will enable the spacecraft to accelerate to up to 1,000 km/h in 20 seconds.The spaceport created by EQUIP Xavier Claramunt will cover a surface of 40,000m2 with investment totalling 150 million euros and its design taking into consideration aspects such as sustainability and respect for the environment. The Galactic Suite project will include a revolutionary space launch system for the very first time.The system is designed to offer maximum safety and reduce impact on the environment to a minimum. The space tourism company’s team of engineers and architects has designed an infrastructure where the spacecraft will levitate using electromagnetic force and will accelerate along a Maglev guideway.
This new technology consists of an acceleration module suspended in the air above a track which is then propelled forward using repulsive and attractive magnetic forces. After approximately reaching the speed of sound, the spacecraft will uncouple from the Maglev acceleration module. Continue reading
