Space Perspective have reimagined space travel. Instead of rocketing away from the Earth at high velocity, you ascend on a gentle, yet thrilling journey and look back at our planet from an entirely new perspective. The space balloon will start flying space passengers in 2024.
The most breathtaking Six Hours of Your Life
Space Perspective reimagines the thrill of space exploration with the world’s most radically gentle voyage to space.
Space Explorers and travel adventurers looking to upgrade their bucket list can now savor 360-degree views of planet Earth from 20 mi/30 km above in a luxurious six hour trip, inside Spaceship Neptune, propelled by a state-of-the-art space balloon the size of a football stadium. Up to eight guests can have the sensational experience from the comfort of plush, reclining seats in a beautifully appointed capsule, complete with a bar and a bathroom, for $125,000 each.

Perspective wants more people to experience the life changing views from space that to date have only been accessible to astronauts —making it possible by applying flight technology also used extensively by NASA for many years.
Traveling where few have gone before in an entirely accessible format, Space Perspective sets a new bar in space travel and out-of-this-world luxury experiences with their exclusive space journey.
This transformative opportunity, taking reservations now for flights to space as soon as late 2024, opens up the possibility of exploring space to a wider audience than has historically been possible. The space curious who would have considered it either too risky — or expensive — now have the opportunity to experience the exhilaration of traveling to space, with a safe and gentle ascent, a world away from rocket-fueled space endeavors. The ground breaking, pressurized Spaceship Neptune gently lifts passengers 100,000 ft/30,000 m to space to then be immersed, for two hours, in entirely new and breathtaking views of the curvature of Earth down below, in all its beauty and its poignancy.
History-making Space Explorers will leisurely ascend from a launch pad at the iconic Kennedy Space Center in Florida to soar above 99% of Earth’s atmosphere in an awe-inspiring, two-hour tour of our planet’s biosphere, from inside the comfortable capsule of Spaceship Neptune and its vast viewing windows. Throughout the six-hour journey, all guests will njoy the best reclining seats in the house to soak in the 450-mile, 360-degree view, an open call on dress, champagne, and a bathroom.
Unlike the physically grueling, and eye wateringly expensive space rockets, there’s minimal preparation nor physical demands for guests — in fact, Spaceship Neptune rewrites the engineering playbook: it doesn’t use rocket propulsion nor engender g-force acceleration — it’s more than brute power. While exhilarating in its own right, this is an invitation to experience a profoundly different perspective that is the most visceral reminder of how interconnected we are, not just with each other, but with all living organisms — boundaries and differences disappear. It’s a powerful, moving and much more expansive perspective that enlightens the human consciousness, the quintessential astronaut experience.
Spaceship Neptune offers hours of constantly changing, dazzling views. Our atmosphere stretches for hundreds of miles into space, Spaceship Neptune flies above 99% of it and the perspective of looking down through atmospheric layers, framed by the thin blue line is — according to most astronauts who have experienced it — profoundly life-changing.
This radical approach to luxury space travel is also mindful of the environment, including zero emission spaceflight. Space Perspective addresses the increased demand for more sustainable travel and experiences for both the affluent and those seeking to invest in a once-in-a-lifetime trip. The draw of more accessible space travel is big business. According to commissioned reports by leading international management consultancy firms, the total addressable market is worth $250 to $700 billion.
Space Perspective will also be the first-of-its-kind space laboratory, able to repeatedly test and capture data from a part of Earth’s atmosphere which to date has been little researched, paving the way for more scientific and creative breakthroughs. Eager to act as change agents and propel research in climate and atmospheric science, astro and solar physics — Spaceship Neptune will enable Explorers to participate in research as part of their own experience.
