This project started with a quest to inspire Singaporeans and establish a greater mental model that it's possible to dream and do greater things - beyond the size of our nation.
This event is pivotal, historic and monumental. It is also the World's first bootstrapped self-funded Startup to send a human to the Edge of Space. (Armstrong line @ 20 KM above sea level - See infographics below)

What kind of man wakes up one day thinking, "hmm... let's start a Space Travel business in Singapore?"
Sending a 1st Singaporean to Space is "unique" as the FIRST time Singapore has dared venture into SPACE - not by a NASA-size organisation but by an enduring group of volunteers' private effort. Our earnest intent is to show fellow Singaporeans that as citizens of a small nation, we can also do BIG things given the competence, perseverance and grit.
From 150 down to 26 candidates. Meet the Singaporeans who have stepped forward and are willing to risk their lives for this mission.
