SXC has developed a tailor-made medical procedure for the Lynx space flight participants, in close cooperation with highly experienced flight surgeons. These are professional doctors who have exceptional experience in the field of aviation and space medicine. They have designed a unique process for commercial space travellers, which was published in the Dutch Scientific Magazine of Medicine. SXC is the first to adopt this process.
SXC’s medical screening process has been carefully designed in order to avoid any health risks for our candidate astronauts, while at the same time providing the life-changing experience to as many people as possible. The medical screening is executed by the astronaut’s family doctor, according to the instructions provided by SXC. This means that the tests are conducted as close to home as possible, in the trusted environment of the astronaut’s own general practitioner’s office.
SXC is proud to present its Non-Executive Board Members.
The Board currently consists of four members. The president is Mr. Steven Martina, CEO of Fatum Caribbean, Curacao. Mr. Eric Krul is a very early SXC supporter, dating from his previous position as CEO of Janssen en de Jong (JaJo) Infrastructure Group of the Netherlands, with an important Caribbean based daughter particularly active in Curacao. Mr. Laurens Meyer is a member of the SXC Board on behalf of SXC investor Go Fast, the fast rising Energy Drink. Mr. Meyer also presides over a successful hotel, catering and estate enterprise (Laurens Meyer Beheer). Finally, Mr. Jan Mol is a well-known entrepreneur and founder of Volmac, a very early and successful IT firm in the Netherlands.

Eric M. Krul

Laurens Meyer is the director and owner of Laurens Meyer Beheer BV, a company actively involved in the catering industry and real estate. His specialties include developing and building, or taking over to lease out. In addition to the catering industry, entrepreneurship in itself is a challenge. That is why he is always on the lookout for further development and expansion. He is also a shareholder of Go Fast (energy drink) and Club Judge. He has entered new markets in several countries, for instance Turkey, Romania, Ukraine and China, introducing, for example, the still relatively young company Saker Sportscars, which arose from his great passion: racing. Saker Sportscars develops racecars, has the components built in its China based factory and assembles these cars in the Netherlands. He also has his own race team: Jadbalja.
Jan Mol, retired businessman and programmer, is the co-founder of Volmac. During his 20+ years with Volmac, he made it into the largest Dutch software company. He is an informal investor in many young business ventures and sponsors and invests in contrasting sports like chess and F1. He is a supporter of contemporary art and charity for children.
