Missions Cradle – human childbirth in space
“It’s a small step for a baby, but a giant baby-step for mankind” said Dr. Egbert Edelbroek (CEO). A bold, yet realistic long term objective of SpaceBorn United the actual birth of the first human baby in space. During a 24-36 hour mission a woman will give birth in low Earth orbit (at 250 miles altitude), accompanied by a trained world class medical team. A carefully prepared and monitored process reduces all possible risks below the existing Western levels on Earth for both mother and child.
