SpaceVIP takes fine dining into orbit

Together with

The Future. A new space startup plans to take guests on a six-hour balloon trip to 100,000 feet to enjoy a gourmet tasting menu in the stratosphere. With another company, France-based Zephalto, also planning similar trips, the next space race may be rooted in hospitality.

Served in the stratosphere
SpaceVIP hopes to make date night out of this world.

  • Six guests at a time will be able to watch the sun rise over the curvature of the Earth… and have WiFi to show it off.
  • The company has hired Michelin-starred chef Rasmus Munk (he runs Alchemist, which ranks #5 on the World’s Best 50 Restaurants) to create an innovative dinner menu for the trip.

Trips aboard the Space Perspectives-built spacecraft (with balloons developed by NASA) will start next year, and the company says reservations are already booking up.

That’s pretty wild when tickets run $500,000 a pop.
