MacCallum, Poynter to Unveil Spaceship Neptune

Well, this is interesting:

Space Perspective introduced by founders Jane Poynter and Taber MacCallum, followed by media Q&A – Space Perspective will announce its plans to fly passengers and research payloads to the edge of space with its Spaceship Neptune.

The announcement is set for Thursday morning.

Jane and Taber were co-founders of Paragon Space Development Corporation, a Tucson company that focuses on space environmental control and life support systems.

Several years ago, they left Paragon to found World View Enterprises, which focused on flying tourists on and conducting remote sensing from high altitude balloon.

Jane stepped away from an operational role at World View. The company also backed away from tourism flights to focus on remote sensing.
