Space Perspective, the world’s first 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 true 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 who truly has everything.
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. A gradual ascent at cycling speed — a world away from fleeting, rocket-fueled endeavors — allows Space Explorers of every kind to spend two hours immersed in breath-taking views from the comfort of a beautifully appointed, pressurized capsule. Propelled by a state-of-the-art space balloon, flights will travel via a grounded co-pilot and an onboard captain to 20 mi/30km above in a shirtsleeve environment.
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, and travelers are granted access to a Hall of Fame astronaut and exclusive Explorer events. 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 set these trips apart.
Founder, co-CEO and CXO 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.

Space Perspective is the world’s first luxury spaceflight experience. It invites more people than has historically been possible to experience a thrillingly new and visceral perspective that expands the human consciousness — the incredibly exhilarating panoramas and scale of Earth in space. Our atmosphere stretches for hundreds of miles into space, Spaceship Neptune flies above 99% of it.
Setting a new bar in out-of-this-world thrilling experiences, as soon as late 2024 Space Perspective will escort Space Explorers gently to space inside Spaceship Neptune’s pressurized capsule propelled by a high-performance space balloon that doesn’t use rocket fuel and Explorers see the world anew through its vast windows. The ultra-comfortable, accessible, and six-hour journey redefines what space and wonder travel means for the modern traveler.
Based out of Kennedy Space Center, Space Perspective is led by industry luminaries Jane Poynter and Taber MacCallum, and their expert crew who have been integral to all human space balloon flights in the last 50 years. Poynter and MacCallum have been dubbed ‘masters of the stratosphere’ by Bloomberg Businessweek, and MacCallum served as Chairman of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation.
