NOVA II CAPSULE UNVEILED
Starchaser unveiled the World's 1st privately manned rocket capsule - The Nova II Capsule on the 3rd April 2003 at the Village Hotel in Hyde, Cheshire.

The event was a great success and attended by hundreds of interested people, press, TV and students.

Excited school kids were lucky enough to sit in Britain's first manned rocket capsule before it is shipped to the USA for its drop test.

The manned capsule will then be dropped from a C-123K transport aircraft at an altitude of 14,000 feet over the Red Lake Drop Zone, Arizona, in order to practice landing the reusable craft.

The main purpose of the tests is to ensure the parachute, navigation and landing systems function as planned.
