Fly to the edge of Space with a balloon for $125,000
Avoiding airborne viruses is possible by heading to a near-vacuum.
The Florida-based company plans to fly passengers into space in a high-tech hot air balloon. The capsule will be piloted by a pilot, and eight passengers will ride in the capsule suspended from a huge blimp.
Space Perspective, a human space flight company, is currently taking reservations for its Spaceship Neptune flights in early 2024. Tickets are priced at $125,000 per person.

Tiered reservation deposits can be refunded, with higher down payments required for Year One flights and lower for subsequent bookings.
The Space Coast Spaceport in Titusville was the launchpad for the inaugural test flight. It took off on June 18. Although the flight took just six hours and 39 minutes, cameras aboard captured stunning images of the Earth at sunrise.

Space Perspective believes the test flight was a significant milestone in its plan to take space tourists on leisurely sightseeing jaunts with a refreshment bar, and social media capabilities.
Jane Poynter, Space Perspective founder, and CEO, stated last year that she is committed to fundamentally changing how people access to space. This includes both for research and for influencing our view of the planet.
Space Perspective’s initial flights will depart from Florida. However, Space Perspective is looking for additional launch locations around the globe.
Two hours of gentle ascent to 100,000 feet above the Earth’s atmosphere will be required for these six-hour trips. The spaceship will then descend to the ocean for a two-hour journey. Passengers can enjoy the 360-degree views from their cabin for another two hours. The ship will take you to shore.
PriestmanGoode, a UK design studio, designed the spaceship.
PriestmanGoode cofounder and designer Nigel Goode stated last year that they considered all elements that would make the experience memorable but also comfortable. We wanted passengers to have unobstructed 360-degree views. We also created an efficient space that allowed them to move about during the journey.

The capsule measures five meters in diameter. When fully inflated, the polyethylene balloon is 100 meters wide. Its length is approximately the same as a football field.
Space Perspective claims the process will be as simple as getting on an airplane. The capsule is pressurized and offers what it calls a “shirt-sleeves environment”. However, Space Perspective plans to host weddings and other events so it may also be black-tie.
It claims that the lavatory is the “best loo in the known universe” and it is located in central of the capsule within the splashdown cone.
Jane Poynter, Taber MacCallum, and Space Perspective co-founders designed the water, air, and food systems for Biosphere 2, where they lived for two years.
Space Perspective’s website states that “our advanced space-balloon was designed to operate in near-vacuum found at space’s edge.” NASA has used similar balloons to fly large research telescopes for many decades.
Spaceship Neptune uses hydrogen because helium is not an insufficient supply and it is needed for medical applications. Space Perspective says that Neptune can float on top of Earth’s atmosphere because the lift gas in the balloon is lighter than air.
The first human to travel into space was Dennis Tito from the United States. He arrived at the International Space Station via a Russian Soyuz rocket in April 2001.
In the 20 years that have passed, only a few people have followed his path, although companies like SpaceX and Elon Musk, however, are a notable exception.
Blue Origin by Jeff Bezos and Virgin Galactic by Richard Branson are both still banking on space tourism eventually going interstellar.
Bezos will fly next month to suborbital orbit on Blue Origin’s first crewed mission. SpaceX proposes that those with a few million dollars might spend days orbiting Earth or stay at the International Space Station.
