Space Perspective, the Earth’s leading luxury spaceflight experience company, elevates the holiday shopping season with the opportunity to gift and share a life-changing voyage to the edge of space. An awe-inspiring trip aboard Spaceship Neptune provides stunning 360-degree views of planet Earth for groups of up to eight passengers, fully customizable from end to end for a truly one-of-a-kind experience. Tickets priced at $125,000 offer a luxurious six-hour trip perfect for adventure-seekers, space explorers, or that special someone.
The radically gentle flights aboard Spaceship Neptune transform holiday wishes into real-life adventure, making space travel available to a wider audience than has ever been possible before - and is a world away from rocket-fueled space endeavors. The elegant ascent in the climate-controlled, pressurized capsule, propelled by a state-of-the-art SpaceBalloon, enables passengers to safely glide for two hours at the edge of space absorbing the phenomenal beauty of Earth and vastness of space. Lift-off takes place at dawn so guests can soak up the sun rising as they climb 100,000 ft (20 mi/30 km). The gradual, two-hour descent to Earth gently concludes with a splash down in the ocean, where a ship retrieves the passengers, the capsule, and the SpaceBalloon. Every aspect of the interior has been designed to enhance the transformative views while elegantly ascending at a cruise speed of 12mph.
Featuring the world's first Space Lounge and largest-ever panoramic windows to be flown to the edge of space, Space Perspective is developing a suite of elegant offerings to elevate an already groundbreaking experience. The historic wonder of space is made contemporary with luxurious reclining seats and a bar. Hospitality and entertainment entrepreneur David Grutman joined Space Perspective as experience curator earlier this year. With reservations already sold out for trips in 2024, Space Perspective is taking bookings to travel in 2025 and beyond, offering the chance to build and enjoy the thoughtful, personal experiences that sets these trips apart.
Co-CEO and Chief Experience Officer Jane Poynter says, “Space Perspective was founded with the mission to invite more people than has historically been possible to ride the wave of space history. Unlike the short-lived, adrenalin-fueled moments of weightlessness, our flights bring you space calm. To gift someone special one of our flights is to give the gift of time: over a six-hour tour of our biosphere, that you can truly focus on the transformative experience of seeing our beautiful Earth from space.”
She continues “Spaceship Neptune provides a truly unique adventure which can be enjoyed solo, or shared with friends and family. A significant portion of our sales to date include the purchase of entire capsules. This is clearly an experience that begs to be savored together — a unifying and profound encounter that breaks down barriers, the most visceral reminder of how interconnected we are, not just with each other, but with all living organisms.”
Space Perspective is making it easier than ever to give a gift that is out of this world: flights require no special training and can be booked online, as single tickets or in larger groups. And while the experience will officially launch from Florida’s space coast in the USA, Space Perspective plans to take their pioneering spaceships worldwide.
