Spaceflight ticket at RM530k per seat, the price of a terraced house in Malaysia

FLORIDA (July 21): Florida-based private space company Space Perspective is launching the world's first luxury spaceflight ticket at US$125,000 (RM530,250) per seat, and all the first 350 seats which are reserved for the maiden flight scheduled in 2024 were sold out since the ticket sales were launched last month.

For the ticket price of one person, one could purchase a brand new double-storey terraced house in Seksyen 30, Shah Alam, with a land area measuring 20 ft by 65 ft and four bedrooms/four bathrooms, according to EdgeProp.my listings.

According to Space Perspective, the spaceflight will be conducted in a capsule carried by a football stadium-sized space balloon that floats 100,000ft above sea level. Each capsule will take up to eight guests into the stratosphere for a trip that will last six hours.

The firm also shared that there are customers who have already bought up entire capsules for group events and some even want to have their weddings there. Meanwhile, other customers plan to celebrate their milestone birthday aboard a capsule or take a corporate event “to new heights”.  

While all 350 spaceflight seats in 2024 are sold out, tickets for 2025 are available for bookings now.

In the capsule, passengers will be able to feast their eyes on 360-degree views of Earth while inside the capsule, which comes complete with a bathroom, bar and on-board Wi-Fi. 

Space Perspective is a private space company that’s planning for everything from zero-gravity flights on a normal plane to space flights that circle the moon. In June, the company's test vehicle, Neptune One, was successfully launched from the Space Coast Spaceport, adjacent to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.
