Top Marques - Book Your Space Flight Here!
Not only can you buy luxury cars, bikes and watches at Top Marques but you can also book a place on a commercial flight into space. This is a model of the craft that is currently being built. Space flights will start on the Island of Curacao in 2014 and already 65 people are signed up at a cost of 72,000 euros per hour. Each trip takes one passenger with a pilot and reaches an altitude of 104 kilometres from where you'll see a horizon that extends from Florida to Brazil. It seems that passengers only need to have sufficient good health to resist the pressure of the take-off. A couple aged 84 are included in those already signed up.
A model of this craft sat on the forecourt of the Grimaldi Forum. This smaller version was displayed inside.
