Engineering peak experiences in the stratosphere

After viewing our planet from space, many astronauts have experienced overwhelming feelings of awe, transcendence and connection with humanity as a whole. Everyone experiences this effect differently, which is why every detail of our stratospheric spaceflight is designed to share this transformational experience – and a deeper bond to the beautiful place we call home.

An intentional take on space tourism

We have reimagined space tourism to be an intentional, purposeful experience that maximizes the opportunity for you to enjoy the ultimate transformational trip of a lifetime. By carefully designing every aspect of your trip for peak impact, we are creating an experience you will surely never forget.

"[Humans] must rise above the Earth, to the top of the atmosphere and beyond, for only thus will [they] fully understand the world in which [they] live."
– Plato

At 100,000 feet, you will never feel closer to Earth.

Your flight plan

From takeoff to touchdown, we have designed our 5-8 hour stratospheric journeys to give you the ultimate time, space and comfort to completely immerse yourself in the wonder of it all.

Your journey on Flight Day will begin with a liftoff before dawn. You will gradually ascend for two hours before reaching float (around 100,000 feet) just before dawn. You will float at apogee for 2-4 hours before beginning your 90-minute descent via pilot-steered parafoil. You will then gently land in a designated landing zone near your departure spaceport and be transported back to the spaceport.

Huge lifting power

Expands to a size that fits an entire football stadium inside and can lift over 10,000 pounds.

Reliable safeguards

Back-up parachute system and landing systems for landing safety redundancy.

Safe by design

Zero-pressure balloons mean there is no risk of rapid deflation or an unplanned free fall.

Precision engineering

Manufactured using proprietary, flight-tested processes that ensure consistent performance.

Sustainable design

A zero-emissions flight profile and recycling of balloons after each flight reduce environmental impact.

Awe-inspiring views

Our spacious cabin gives you plenty of room to move about, with massive windows offering unobstructed panoramic views of the horizon in every direction.

Patented flight technology

Proprietary stratospheric trajectory modeling systems will keep you gently hovering high above Earth before slowly starting your descent.

Gentle touchdown

As it descends, the capsule will deploy our patented parafoil system and separate from the balloon, gliding to a soft landing with gear that absorb and deflect impact.
