DreamSpace™ Enters Space Tourism Market through Technology Partnership with The da Vinci Project - Las Cruces, New Mexico – October 21, 2006: DreamSpace™, a new space tourism company was announced at the XPRIZE Cup in Las Cruces, New Mexico by Brian Feeney, founder of The da Vinci Project. DreamSpace™ has partnered with The da Vinci Project to pursue the emerging space tourism market.

This collaborative effort has introduced the XF1, the first of a planned line of multiple passenger spacecraft. The one person technology demonstrator will be used to constantly broaden the spaceflight envelope, in preparation for the DreamSpace™ goal of Space Tourism. Technical details for this new ship were released today, at the XPRIZE Cup and online at DreamSpaceGroup.net.

“DreamSpace™ is pushing the envelope in the field of commercial space tourism”, said Brian Feeney, President. “We have chosen the 2006 XPRIZE Cup to unveil the new XF1 prototype spacecraft design, a one person spaceflight test bed for our 9‑person commercial space tourism spacecraft."

The full scale XF1 will be ready for testing by the summer of 2007. It will employ a new liquid rocket propulsion system and aircraft turbine engine. This is a winged space aircraft design able to operate out of an airport style spaceport with airline efficiency. It reflects both the technology and design approach for DreamSpace’s space tourism business model.
