When the altitude of almost 100 kilometers is reached, the capsule and rocket will separate from each other. The rocket will return to earth like SpaceX’s rockets. Meanwhile, the capsule will allow you to feel the zero-gravity environment in space, as in Richard Branson’s flight. time frame of few minutes will present.
