You can ride a hydrogen balloon to outer space for $125K
After a devastating year of life on Earth, here’s your chance to get far, far away from it all.

Space flight company Space Perspective has debuted a $125,000 package that brings travelers to the edge of our atmosphere on a space-age hot air balloon.

The Florida-based firm aims to usher in a “new era in luxury travel experiences” with their groundbreaking — or air-breaking, if you will — tour aboard the Spaceship Neptune, a massive, hydrogen-supported balloon with a passenger capsule in tow that can float atop Earth’s atmosphere. There, amateur astronauts can soak up the splendor of our home planet, thanks to panoramic windows and reclining seats.

If liquid courage is called for, a bar — and bathrooms, of course — are also built into the capsule’s compact design.

Individual and group reservations are now open for the inaugural 2024 launch, expected to take place at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Typical spaceflight places high demands on passengers and the planet as millions of pounds of fuel are required for their turbulent launches. Rather than bursting through the atmosphere at g-force speeds as rockets do, Spaceship Neptune offers a “radically gentle voyage” for guests aboard the eight-person capsules, designed to be tugged upward by a 650-foot-tall hydrogen-filled balloon — the most eco-friendly space travel option to date.

A seat aboard Spaceship Neptune costs $125,000 — a fraction of what some are paying to ride on other commercial space-flight endeavors.
During a video news conference last year, Space Perspective husband-and-wife CEOs Jane Poynter and Taber MacCallum explained that Spaceship Neptune would spend about two hours reaching its maximum altitude of about 100,000 feet — 18 miles up — for a trip lasting about six hours. Proof of concept came on June 18 after a successful test flight from the Space Coast Spaceport in Titusville, Florida.

As a lifelong space Futurist, you couldn’t pay me enough to board one of these jokes. Playing around with leaving Earth’s atmosphere is serious business. This is no Coney Island Ferris wheel.

i’m more curious of what they may discover from using this other than a joy ride for the rich. As much as i want to go up into space i doubt that i’ll see a price point i can afford it. I just feel a need to go up thier can’t explain it

T and R, Ms. Benny!!✊☮️😊👍 I have been gone all day so wasn’t aware of your posting. Anywho, thank you !! Did you notice that comment from humphrey? I knew that sucker was lurking. 😂

jcitybone

Saw the comment. Best for me to ignore.

Thanks Ms. Benny for the Sirota read. Like I said in an earlier comment, successful screenplay writing is a very different animal from straight political journalism. Take it from an old fart who could teach it. 😂 This film had Leonardo DeCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, and queen bee Meryl Streep in it. They did it cos of the message. I sure hope like h3ll word travels. 👍

orlbucfan

My age is showing. Repeat comment. 🤪 Regarding humphrey, I knew he was lurking around. Hey listen up, this site is coming up on 7 years old. It is being solidly supported by 💵💵 folks. We’re small but we are smart and respected. Just wait until after Labor Day cos that’s when the real political action cranks up for elections. I’m doing my stuff for Anna E. My 4th campaign and I love it. ☮️☮️☮️☮️✊

AOC needs to raise some serious noize about this. She knows if she does, she will get re-elected in a landslide. Believe me, word travels at the grassroots level.
