Eager to join the space tourism race, EOS-X Space is prepping for a 2025 launch. This Spanish company first announced its plans in 2020, and recent developments like securing millions in funding and partnering with a leading aerospace institute suggest liftoff is imminent.

EOS-X Space promises a unique adventure for wealthy adrenaline seekers. Passengers will ascend to the edge of space for a five-hour voyage aboard a pressurized capsule tethered to a helium balloon.

The journey will begin with a two-hour climb through the atmosphere, culminating in breathtaking sunrise views from above Earth. For the next two hours, they’ll float in the blackness of space, marveling at the curvature of our planet.

A one-hour descent will then return them safely to a designated landing zone. While details remain under wraps, concept images showcase a sleek capsule crafted from carbon fiber.

Panoramic views will likely be available through expansive windows, and the interior might even be designed for ultimate comfort, resembling a luxurious space lounge complete with a bar and restroom.

Space tourism is on the rise, fueled by the desire to experience the Overview Effect firsthand. This cognitive shift, described by author Frank White in 1987, refers to the awe and perspective gained from witnessing Earth from space.

Proponents believe this transformative experience, akin to a near-death encounter, will foster a deeper appreciation for our planet and inspire action to protect it.

EOS-X Space, a Spanish company, is aiming to deliver this experience with its luxury space balloon flights reaching 40,000 meters. With capsule development underway and a projected launch in late 2025, EOS-X is betting on the transformative power of space tourism, but some remain cautious about their ambitious timeline.

Nevertheless, those with deep pockets can start saving for a ticket, priced between €150,000 and €200,000, which includes a luxurious pre-flight experience.
