Space Perspective, a company leading in carbon neutral space travel has recently achieved a major milestone by completing its test capsule structure designed for tourist flights through the innovative SpaceBalloon™. This step is instrumental in ensuring that space travel becomes more affordable and sustainable.

Within its newly designed Spaceship Neptune, Space Perspective has put up the test capsule which combines the spherical capsule with an extra reserve descent system and a SpaceBalloon. This makes it singular in space travel as it remains attached to the SpaceBalloon at all times during flight, giving passengers an uninterrupted journey from take-off to splashdown. Besides being economical, this technique also provides safety enhancement.

Spaceship Neptune sets itself apart due to its dedication to sustainability and safety. In contrast to conventional spacecraft which involve moving between flight systems while still in the air, within Neptune’s capsule it remains fastened on the SpaceBalloon which guarantees a hassle-free experience. The spacecraft has room for eight Explorers and one Captain with windows that are the largest ever seen on board spaceships. This design offers explorers referred to as passengers, a chance of seeing earth against outer space background.

At Space Perspective, they are proud of being able to produce everything needed internally. It is constructed in Melbourne, Florida at the company’s facility with the capsule being integrated at Cape Canaveral capsule assembly facility. Boeing, SpaceX, and PriestmanGoode engineers from the firm have come together to design and build a round capsule with panoramic views that can work in various environments.
