The Challenge

The ambition of the initiators of the Space Xperience Curacao [SXC] is to create a Caribbean touristic attractor, hosting the operator for Galactic Travels, and linking to international scientific space research. The SXC building will be built as a spaceship, applying maritime and aviation techniques to the building body. The SXC will be an inspiring venue both for the international scientific community, the future astronauts, and for the tourists who leave the SXC with a memorable experience.
