Modular EVA Training System (METS)

For the first time in history, Space is finally within your reach! If you have ever wanted to know what it was like to live and work in space we can train you. Waypoint 2 Space was created with the sole purpose of training future commercial astronauts, researchers, teachers and space enthusiasts with various programs for all levels of participation. There’s one piece of hardware we would especially like to have for our training but it doesn’t currently exist…Yet! With your help it will soon.

We came up with a concept for a training device called the Modular EVA Training System (METS). METS is capable of housing a spacecraft training module 12 feet high and 10 feet wide and will simulate a person performing an Extra-Vehicular Activity (EVA or Space Walk as commonly known) here on Earth. METS incorporates a gravity off set system creating the sensation of weightlessness while simultaneously providing a Trainee the ability to translate around a moveable space module (like found on the International Space Station) simulating a full weightless environment.

    Black Sky Training wishes Way2Space luck. As the first company to have a spaceflight training course approved by the FAA, BST understands the challenges that are ahead of Way2Space in developing, funding and maintaining a professional spaceflight training program that delivers actual training.

  3. Spacetech says:

    How can anybody justify the cost of training when no one knows when flights will be available. I can’t believe that any training of this type would have an open ended expiration. F.A.A flight physicals are only good for 12-60 months
