About Space Perspective

Space Perspective is the world’s first luxury spaceflight experience company, pioneering a new era of space exploration. We are committed to providing our clients with an unparalleled experience, combining state-of-the-art technology with exceptional service. Our team is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of human spaceflight and making space accessible to all.

The founders - Jane Poynter (CEO) and Taber MacCallum (CTO) - are serial entrepreneurs with 30 years’ experience in human spaceflight, with mission critical technology on every orbiting human space vehicle. They have flown a crewed SpaceBalloon flight, and multiple SpaceBalloon flights with a capsule heavier than Spaceship Neptune. They lived two years sealed inside Biosphere 2.

The company has over $225M+ in bookings, more than any other space travel company. Expected to reach $400M bookings by H1’2025.

Significant revenue upside through brand partnerships, content partnerships, pre-and post-flight experiences, and science.

Commercial operations are planned to commence as soon as H1’ 2025, launching from our ship, MS Voyager. Initial operations start in Florida, and the ship operations allow flights almost anywhere in the world, unlocking global scale in a supply-constrained market forecast to be $9B by 2030, and a TAM of $0.5T.

Prototype test flight completed, demonstrating full flight profile under SpaceBalloon to 100,000 feet and accurate splashdown 800m from the awaiting retrieval boat.

Twelve granted patents with ten pending, covering all critical aspects and functions of Spaceship Neptune providing strong mote.
