Spanish Startup EOS-X Space Nears Completion of Space Balloon with Capsule for Earth Orbit Trips

Spanish startup EOS-X Space is nearing the completion of its innovative space balloon, which includes a capsule capable of ascending to near-Earth orbit. This unique cruise experience for affluent clients could be launched as early as next year.

The design features a pressurized carbon fiber capsule that can transport seven passengers and a pilot to an altitude of up to 40,000 meters. The first commercial flights of EOS-X Space are planned to take off from bases in Seville and Abu Dhabi in the third quarter of 2025.

Inside the capsule, passengers will find ergonomic seats, panoramic windows, a bar, and a restroom, all accented by soft ambient lighting. The cost of an EOS-X flight ranges from $160,550 to $214,060. Initial test flights of the capsule are scheduled soon, in collaboration with Spain’s National Institute of Aerospace Technology.

A similar venture is being developed by Space Perspective, which has been working on its project since 2020. Upon completion, Space Perspective aims to offer six-hour space cruises reaching heights of up to 30,000 meters. Their capsule will be suspended from a massive hydrogen-filled balloon called SpaceBalloon. After reaching the target altitude, the balloon will gradually release gas to facilitate a controlled descent.
