Introducing a totally unique ride into space

Over the next few months, you will learn more about the XCOR Lynx spacecraft and get an inside view of how it’s being created. You’ll be there at every key development stage as this thrilling vehicle is assembled. Watch us test the propulsions systems on the unique, rocket-powered spacecraft. Understand the challenges of making a reusable vehicle capable of thrusting its way into space before gliding safely back down to its departure point. By this time next year, you’ll be involved in the countdown for take-off. As part of the Mission Control team, you’ll be introduced to the crew who will be making space history. In the near future, you could be watching the first-ever Philips spaceflight soar up and away from Curaçao or the Mojave Desert.

For example, one of our newest innovations is the Philips Shaver series 9000, containing a whole galaxy of high-tech features designed to give you the best shave ever. To ensure its performance is truly out of this world, we’ve even tested it in zero gravity. And as a member of Mission Control, you’ll discover more about our extraterrestrial ambitions.
