In 2012 I won a ticket to space with Space Expedition Corporation. The ticket was the prize to the university organised Space for Innovation competition that required participants to present a concept that would revolutionise the aerospace industry in 2040. With my idea of liquid hydrogen powered commercial aircraft I earned myself a spot in SXC's founder astronaut program. In 2015 I will go to space.
Thanks for visiting my website. I am Nout van Zon, Aerospace Engineering student in the Netherlands and private pilot in training. In 2015 I will go to space on a ticket won during a university organised competition. Surrounding my passion for aerospace I also constructed a home cockpit flight simulator during my high school days, of which pictures are displayed on this website. Have a look around!
