What do we see from the capsule?
When we reach the apogee of the journey, in the stratosphere - 25 km above Earth - you will be able to observe the Earth like never before. You will be immersed in the darkness of space, the infinite abyss of the universe surrounding the capsule. These conditions allow unparalleled observation of the Earth's curvature and its bluish halo, with a panorama of over 1,400 km unfolding before your eyes. We will accompany you to experience the "Overview Effect," a phenomenon that astronauts describe as a transformative experience, a cognitive shift, an unparalleled emotion. This is explained by the act of seeing the Earth from space, inducing a change in perception; your worldview will then shift.
How does Zephalto guarantee the safety of its passengers?
Safety is our top priority. We surround ourselves with the best: our team include experts in aeronautics, space and safety. Our partners include CNES, Airbus, Dassault, ESA and many other players in the space industry. The Zephalto experience, designed by experts, relies on 60 years of ballooning expertise of our historical partner, the French Center of Expertise for Space (CNES). Zephalto benefits from exclusive technology transfer and ongoing support. The capsule will be certified by the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) to the highest safety standards and in accordance with current standards for passenger transport. This technological masterpiece is developed with the same design and certification requirements as the airliner that carries you on commercial flights. Certification will result in a Type Certificate, and the production control process will ensure that every capsule and envelope correspond exactly to the design approved by the EASA authorities. We have registered more than 200 operational procedures with INPI (Institut National de la Propriété Industrielle). In addition, more than 11 key safety patents are currently pending.
How long is the journey?
The journey lasts 6 hours in total, with a 1.5-hour ascent, 3 hours at the summit when stationed at an altitude of 25km and then a gentle 1.5-hour descent. https://www.zephalto.com/experience
