The Cayman Islands is now set to go where no Caribbean island has gone before and become a new hub for space tourism.
The islands south of Cuba and west of Jamaica, now will be given the chance to see them from a whole new perspective whilst up in space. Plans have been approved to develop four major rocket launch pads along Seven Mile Beach allowing visitors to enjoy the highlights of Grand Cayman before heading off above the earth’s atmosphere and into space.
A spokesman from the Cayman Aeronautics and Space Administration said that “We are extremely excited to be the first Caribbean island to launch this type of tourism. “It is an ambitious project but one that we hope will really take off as a way to attract more people to experience these beautiful islands, both on and above the earth’s surface.”
The project will take four years to complete with the first Cayman Space Tour taking off on April 1st, 2021.
