    It may be called a “spaceship”, but Spaceship Neptune is more akin to a balloon which can carry a pressurised capsule to a height of around 30,480 metres above sea level. There, in the stratosphere – which is technically below the official definition of space’s boundary at 100km – diners will be able to dine while watching the sun rise over the Earth’s curvature.

    There’s no such thing as a free dinner, and this is certainly the kind more likely to break the bank. A ticket on board will set you back $495,000 (€459,000). For that price tag, you get a six-hour journey up to the stratosphere and back, alongside a menu that far exceeds the rehydrated tubes of food astronauts have dined on for decades.
