The concept of space tourism is generating a lot of buzzes. Blue Origin, founded by Jeff Bezos, and Virgin Atlantic, which Richard Branson founded, have both expressed interest in space travel. Space travel, on the other hand, is too expensive for almost everyone. However, a startup is seeking to make it more inexpensive, according to a report by Digital Trends.
Space Perspective, according to the article, developed and tested a premium eight-seat human-crewed capsule. A gigantic hydrogen-filled balloon propels the pill, called Spaceship Neptune, into space. The tablet has a bar, reclining chairs, and house windows throughout, according to the story.
However, there is a snag. The Spaceship Neptune can only fly 20 miles above the ground, three times higher than a long-haul passenger. Zero-gravity experiences will be provided by Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic, allowing passengers to float freely within the capsule.
In Space Perspective, such a component does not exist. However, it does give a long journey. For example, space Perspective’s mission will take six hours from launch to touchdown, compared to ten minutes for Blue Origin.
According to the story, passengers on board the sumptuous capsule will have two hours to rise, two hours to enjoy the views, and two hours to return home. Spaceship Neptune tickets are $1,25,000, while Virgin Galactic tickets are $4,50,000.
