"stargate" creates weightlessness. Now anyone can float like an astronaut. It's that easy - and it works! Due to our many years of experience gained by creating weightlessness on board aircraft, we are going a stage further and planning a ground-based unit for creating weightlessness. For the fast-approaching space tourism, research, industry and the wider public.
Up until now, weightlessness could only be created in the pull of the Earth's gravitational field using the following technique: Within a body - e.g. an aircraft, following a vertical parabolic curve at a specific speed, all objects and lifeforms are weightless. Exactly the same happens in a spacecraft orbiting the Earth.
The world's first and therefore only ground-based unit for weightlessness. In the heart of the Austrian Alps. The mountains help with this - we use them as a frame. We're paving the way into space. Training for future space tourists. The story for all media.
The overall plant is about 6,500m long and 1,400m high. It follows a vertical parabolic curve, the existing mountains act as a basic frame and make the
construction of this project technically possible. A manned capsule with 6 paying passengers and 3 instructors or corresponding payload is propelled at a certain speed along a parabolic curve
whilst secured to rails. In this way we generate weightlessness in the capsule for
22 seconds - ten times per standard campaign.
Unit capacity: 36,000 passengers per year.
