MONTEREY, Calif., Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- XCOR Aerospace presents its XCOR® Lynx® spacecraft full scale model as part of tonight's Gordon McCall's Motorworks Revival 2014, at the Monterey Jet Center. Dubbed a "Space Corvette" by Popular Mechanics, Lynx is a two-seat, fully reusable spaceplane designed to rocket XCOR customers to the edge of space in five minutes. Piloted by NASA Space Shuttle Commander Rick Searfoss, Lynx is currently under construction at the XCOR hangar in Mojave, California.
Participants in tonight's festivities "will step into Lynx and experience firsthand what life will be like 62 miles above Earth," said XCOR representative Greg Claxton. Lynx engineers are present to discuss the spacecraft and answer any questions participants may have.
Gordon McCall's Motorworks Revival founder, Gordon McCall, noted that the event's deep links with aviation history led to collaboration with XCOR Aerospace. "This is truly a first in the intersection between the future of space exploration and luxury automobiles. It's the natural next step for us. As the first to merge both aviation and automotive into one event at Monterey Car Week, we are honored to reach new heights with XCOR."
"As the sports car of spacecraft, XCOR Lynx is being built with the same care and craftsmanship found under the hoods of the best cars here this week," added Claxton. "That itself is a revolution in design."
XCOR Aerospace is based in Mojave, California. It is currently creating a Research and Development Center in Midland, Texas, and will be establishing an operational and manufacturing site at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida with the assistance of Space Florida. XCOR® builds safer, more reliable and reusable rocket-powered vehicles, propulsion systems, advanced non-flammable composites and rocket piston pumps. XCOR works with aerospace prime contractors and government customers on major propulsion systems, while also building the XCOR® Lynx®. Lynx is a piloted, two-seat, fully reusable liquid rocket-powered spacecraft that takes off and lands horizontally. The Lynx family of vehicles serves three primary missions: research and scientific missions and private spaceflight in the Lynx Mark I and Lynx Mark II, and micro satellite launch on the Lynx Mark III. Lynx production models (designated Lynx Mark II) are designed to be robust, multi-mission (research/scientific or private spaceflight) commercial vehicles capable of flying to 100+ km in altitude, up to four times per day. Lynx production models are available to customers in the free world on a wet-lease basis for their own manned space flight programs. Learn more at www.xcor.com.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...
