The Soyuz Chair

Livingroom physics

Space tourism is a great success. The possibilities of weightlessness, to feel the thrill of liftoff and to finally meet the unknown doesn’t have to be a fantasy anymore. But space tourism is still just for the few.

The Soyuz chair accurately reproduces the 3 stages of the Soyuz rocket launch. Reclining into launch position, you face the sky, put on your headset, and use the control panel to select your mode; just a single stage, or the full lift off experience.

5...4...3...2...1..., Which planet will you land on?
