If you can afford to spare US125,000 for a ticket, you can enjoy the space tour decked in a beautifully appointed space capsule to enjoy outer space complete with a bar and bathroom come 2024.

The new era in luxury travel experiences is brought by Space Perspective which is the world’s most radically gentle voyage to space. Travel adventurers can now reserve a seat on Spaceship Neptune and savor 360-degree views of planet Earth from 20 miles/30 km above in a luxurious six-hour trip. Up to eight guests can enjoy a beautifully appointed capsule.

The brainchild of space travel experts Jane Poynter and Taber MacCallum, Space 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 used extensively by NASA for many years.
This transformative opportunity, taking reservations now for flights as soon as late 2024, extends the possibility of exploring space to a wider audience than has historically been possible.

The space curious who would have considered it too risky or expensive can now experience the exhilaration of traveling to space with a safe and gentle ascent. The ground-breaking pressurized Spaceship Neptune gently lifts passengers to space to be immersed in breath-taking views of the curvature of Earth.

History-making Space Explorers will ascend in Spaceship Neptune from a launch pad at the iconic Kennedy Space Center. Eight guests, accompanied by a pilot, will soar above 99% of Earth’s atmosphere and then glide for two hours to uniquely enjoy our planet’s biosphere from the comfortable capsule’s vast viewing windows.

Unlike grueling, expensive space rockets, Spaceship Neptune rewrites the engineering playbook: it doesn’t use rocket propulsion nor engender g-force acceleration. Exhilarating in its own right, this experience invites a profoundly different perspective through atmospheric layers, framed by the thin blue line below and the blackness of space above. This visceral reminder of how interconnected we are with all living organisms is – according to most astronauts who have experienced it – profoundly life-changing; boundaries and differences disappear..

Each flight will be personally curated with end-to-end bespoke experiences, from meeting Hall of Fame astronauts to taking nuptials to new heights.

Space Perspective is the first space launch operator to fly from Space Coast Air and Spaceport, located adjacent to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Their Neptune One inaugural Test Flight kicks off an extensive testing program that makes Spaceship Neptune an extremely safe way to go to space. Space Perspective ensures safety by applying flight technology used for decades by NASA and global government entities, supported by a world class, hand-picked crew integral to all human space balloon flights for the last 50 years.

Jane Poynter and Taber MacCallum, the husband-and-wife team behind Space Perspective, are on a mission to invite more people – including scientists and artists – to ride the wave of space history and be transformed by seeing our beautiful Earth from space.


The couple has been responsible for some of the most remarkable breakthroughs in space innovation and exploration in the last 20 years: perfecting technologies seen on the International Space Station, acting as technical advisors in human spaceflight to Elon Musk pre-SpaceX, and Google executive Alan Eustace’s world record for human spaceflight – 136,000 ft propelled by a space balloon in 2014.

Traveling where few have gone before in an entirely accessible format, Space Perspective sets a new bar in out-of-this-world luxury experiences. Please visit www.spaceperspective.com to reserve your seat.
