In an ambitious bid to offer a carbon-neutral spaceflight experience, Space Perspective has unveiled its awe-inspiring venture, promising to transport earthly tourists to the very fringes of the celestial abyss. This groundbreaking endeavor, achieved through the deployment of Spaceship Neptune and a pressurized capsule, ingeniously modeled after a hot air balloon, takes passengers on an unforgettable odyssey.
While the ascent to the cosmic frontier may require some patience, the prospect of answering nature’s call en route is a practical consideration. For some travelers, the allure of securing a coveted window seat is undeniable, seeking a fully immersive in-flight encounter. Others, however, may yearn for a respite from the cosmic cacophony, yearning to luxuriate in peace and quiet. Enter Space Perspective’s latest innovation, a custom-designed lavatory chamber christened the “Space Spa,” seamlessly melding convenience, panoramic vistas, and an aesthetic appeal that transcends traditional airborne facilities.
Nestled within the confines of Spaceship Neptune’s capsule interior, adjacent to the onboard lounge, the Space Spa offers a tranquil haven for eight passengers and their esteemed captain as they voyage through the cosmos. The masterminds behind this extraordinary concept, Dan Window and Isabella Trani of Space Perspective, have ingeniously crafted a restroom that transcends the mundane standards of terrestrial air travel.
Departing from the usual drab airplane lavatory palette, the Space Spa exudes an air of serenity with its soft, space-inspired hues, like the gentle glow of light yellow. Illumination is carefully calibrated to foster an inviting ambiance, offering passengers the ability to customize their surroundings and eliminating any irksome reflections on the observation windows. Harmonious soundscapes fill the capsule’s interior, and greenery evokes the memories of Space Perspective’s founders’ experiences at Biosphere 2, the pioneering scientific research facility nestled in Arizona’s heartland.
Isabella Trani envisions the Space Spa as an oasis of solitude and a sanctuary for those in search of reprieve. She asserts, “It was imperative that it felt like a retreat. Explorers will find this environment cocooning and comforting, with no sharp edges, which adds to the ambiance and creates a very welcoming place. On a practical level, the design benefits cleanliness, allowing for things such as surfaces that are easy to wipe down, and its soft surfaces and greenery promote sound and odor control.”
But the Space Spa is just one facet of the comprehensive experience awaiting Spaceship Neptune’s intrepid passengers. A treasure trove of amenities, including a world-class culinary program, plush seating arrangements, personalized headphones, amenity kits, and Wi-Fi connectivity, is meticulously curated to elevate the space journey to unparalleled heights. As of July 2023, Space Perspective proudly announced that they had sold more than 1,600 tickets, each valued at $125,000 USD, offering explorers the rare privilege of experiencing the cosmos from a window seat within a lavatory spa. This stellar escapade is poised to commence at the dawn of 2024.
