Have you dreamed of traveling to outer space, thinking it was a pie-in-the-sky idea that would never happen? Think again.

A company called Space Perspective is offering flights into space on their Spaceship Neptune for 2024.

While there currently are openings, it’s obviously not cheap. Each trip costs $125,000 per passenger.

Space Perspective bills the Spaceship Neptune as a “pressurized, roomy capsule, where every seat is the best seat in the house, allows Space Explorers to experience the majesty of gliding through space while sipping a beverage of choice,” according to their official website.

The company also states that the six-hour voyage on Spaceship Neptune is “safe and comfortable, with minimal physical requirements and as simple as boarding an airplane.”

“Launching from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and flown gently by a spaceballoon instead of rockets, a ride on the zero-emissions Spaceship Neptune offers the thrill of space and the comfort of calm,” they add.

You can reserve your spot with a $1,000 deposit. The deposit, the company says, is 100% refundable until the final balance payment is due, which they say is at or around twelve months before the planned Space Perspective Flight date.
