Luminox goes to space

Luminox Space Expedition Corporation

Luminox, the watch brand that pioneered the use of self-powered illumination in timepieces, announced their partnership with commercial spaceliner Space Expedition Corporation (SXC) during 2013. Having already been requested by and supplied to a long list of special forces that work in the SEA, AIR and LAND,SPACE added an exciting 4th dimension. Luminox has been part of the Essential Gear by U.S. Navy SEALs, U.S. Air Force Stealth Pilots, SWAT teams, Police and rescue organizations around the world, and Underwater explorers, and now will be worn by the Astronauts (and passengers) of the SXC Spaceships as a new series of special timepieces are being developed that can withstand the incredible G-Forces and weightlessness encountered in spaceflights.

SXC will perform daily commercial flights into space as of 2014. Passengers will have a life-changing experience viewing planet Earth from 100 kilometers high and, having travelled to that altitude, they can rightly be called astronauts. SXC’s XCOR Lynx II spacecraft is designed and built by XCOR Aerospace in Mojave, California USA. SXC is the launching customer of this space vehicle that comfortably takes off and lands like a normal airplane, from regular airports. The breakthrough technology of this reusable spacecraft signifies a completely new era for the aerospace industry, enabling superfast, long range, environmentally friendly travel outside our atmosphere. www.spacexc.com
