Space Expedition Corporation (SXC) has teamed up with Alchemy Tourism in Dubai to market XCOR Lynx tickets in the United Arab Emirates. Officials from the Dutch company were in Dubai earlier this week to keep off the effort, which seeks to tap into a wealthy nation where rival Virgin Galactic has raised the bulk of the funds for its SpaceShipTwo vehicle.
- SXC has apparently worked for 13 years “in association with” XCOR to develop the Lynx. (In reality, XCOR has been in existence 14 years, while SXC was created a couple of years ago to market and operate the Lynx.)
- XCOR has been renamed “Excor.”
- Mojave is now “Mohavy.”
Strangely enough, both writers spelled Curacao correctly. I did not see that one coming.
