XCOR Announces Exclusive Offer on All Lynx Payload Flights for
2013 Next Generation Suborbital Researchers Conference Participants

May 21, 2013, Mojave, California - For the duration of the Next Generation Suborbital Researchers Conference in Broomfield, Colorado from June 3-5, 2013, XCOR Aerospace will offer a special 2-for-1 deal on all payload purchases by conference participants.

"We are excited to offer this unique opportunity to all participants at NSRC 2013," said XCOR Chief Operating Officer Andrew Nelson. "Experimenters are driven in part by the lower cost of suborbital flights and the significantly improved level and duration of high quality microgravity, exposure to the vacuum of space or the high reaches of our atmosphere. Compared to sounding rockets, aircraft and drop towers, Lynx flights are dramatically less expensive, easier to integrate an experiment in to, and available on a more frequent basis. We hope this 2-for-1 offer at NSRC draws the proper attention to the Lynx and our industry's capabilities on a global basis."

With the pace of research about to increase dramatically, "We want to open that door for NSRC participants, to foster that next step into a new era of suborbital research," said XCOR's Director of Payload Sales and Operations, Khaki Rodway. "Today, suborbital payload flights are infrequent at best. What we love most about this opportunity is that for the first time in history, you will fly an experiment, get the results quickly, turn the experiment around and fly it again. This means you can modify and iterate a lot of experiments in a short window of time, and receive much more data in that compressed time frame. That not been available at any price until now."

Fine print: This offer is for NSRC participants only, both for professional and student registrants. To redeem this offer, simply come to the XCOR booth at NSRC 2013, show your badge, sign up and receive a hand-signed coupon that is good for experiments flown one year after the Lynx Mark I starts scientific flights. Limit one coupon per participant. This 2-for-1 offer is based on XCOR-published retail prices for payloads.

About XCOR Aerospace: About XCOR Aerospace: XCOR Aerospace is on the verge of becoming the most active spaceflight company in the world based on safer, reliable and reusable rocket-powered vehicles, propulsion systems, advanced non-flammable composites and rocket piston pumps. XCOR is building Lynx, a piloted, two-seat, fully reusable liquid rocket-powered vehicle that takes-off and lands horizontally. The Lynx-family of vehicles serves three primary missions depending on their specific type including: research & scientific missions, private spaceflight, and micro satellite launch (only 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 vehicles are available to customers in the free world on a wet lease basis or explorers who wish to buy a flight may contact XCOR or our General Sales Agent, Space Expedition Corporation (www.spacexc.com). XCOR also works with aerospace prime contractors and government customers on major propulsion systems development. XCOR Aerospace was founded in Mojave, California, is creating a new Research and Development Flight Test Center in Midland, Texas and establishing a suborbital flight operations base at Kennedy Space Center in Florida and Hato International Airport in Curacao.
