Sarco X is almost ready for lift off.
Penultimate lab tests were conducted in the Netherlands on Friday 7 August 2020 & the results are in.
Sarco created an oxygen-free environment in less than one minute.
The oxygen inside the capsule plummeted rapidly from 21% to 0.4% in 50 seconds.
More news to follow as final tests are postponed yet again because of COVID-19!
During 2020, Sarco was in exhibition at the Cube Design Museum in Kerkrade.
Sarco was on display in the exhibition ‘Verwacht: (Re)design Death’ which highlights ‘Dutch and international design projects related to death and the rituals surrounding it.’
The exhibition ran until February 2021.
Unfortunately, because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Dutch lockdown, Cube was closed and then reopened all throughout 2020.
Cube Design Museum is at: Museumplein 2 6461 MA Kerkrade NL
