DINING IN SPACE
Starting in 2025, a nighttime adventure to a spaceport will grant you access to an extraordinary rendezvous with the stars!
Upon arrival, a pilot will extend a warm welcome, inviting you aboard a sleek, futuristic spherical space capsule equipped with state-of-the-art comforts. At the heart of the cabin lies an elegantly set table, reminiscent of the most refined Parisian eateries.
Here, you'll be introduced to StellarEmbrace, the meticulously trained and crafted robot by ApoteoSurprise in collaboration with a British startup. Sporting a cheerful demeanor, the robot will address you by your first names, ushering in a warm greeting. It will then turn to your beloved, presenting her with a bouquet of roses as a gesture of welcome.
StellarEmbrace will go on to reveal that your presence here heralds an incredible surprise: a journey into space, where you'll partake in an utterly unforgettable gastronomic experience, enveloped in the company of your sweetheart!
The capsule's entryways will seal, and you'll ascend gently into the sky, propelled by a helium-inflated stratospheric balloon.
Over the course of the two-hour ascent, this tranquil voyage will guide you through a series of marvels. Towering windows will grant you awe-inspiring views and a unique perspective of our planet. As the dark night surrounds you, and you draw closer to your final elevation, you'll witness countless networks of luminous cityscapes and roadways.
Within the pressurized capsule, the ambient lighting will adjust to the flight phase. The ascent will unfold amidst a serene, cerulean atmosphere, while the robot tends to you with glasses of champagne, orange juice, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and freshly baked croissants.
StellarEmbrace will be at your beck and call, ready to converse, field your questions, and even serenade or dance. Boasting an artificial intelligence system, it will fine-tune its body language through an emotion recognition mechanism, honed in on your facial expressions, tone, and vocabulary. Mind you, this robot is quite the jester!
As the sun ascends, you'll reach the cruising altitude of 35 kilometers, now soaring above 99% of Earth's atmosphere. In this instant, the splendor of our planet unfurling below your feet will be nothing short of enchanting — a vision of unparalleled grandeur. You'll be treated to vistas of the Earth's curvature, the bluish halo of the atmosphere, and the pitch-black expanse of space, adorned with a multitude of stars. You're on the brink of experiencing the overview effect, the quintessential astronautic cognitive shift that only 600 humans have known before you. In the face of this enchantment, you'll feel a profound connection with all of humanity, forever altering your perception of our world.
Within the capsule, the ambient lighting will gradually transition to a warm, subtly reddish-orange hue. StellarEmbrace will then invite you to gather around the central table. The robot will serve you a "food and wine pairing" gourmet dinner, curated by a renowned chef boasting two Michelin stars. The menu features puffed scallops, a duet of lobster and truffles, matured caviar with milk flower, honey-lacquered roast supreme, and a crisp grapefruit.
Throughout your meal, a thoughtfully curated music selection will accompany your experience, featuring iconic tracks like "Space Oddity" by David Bowie, "Across the Universe" by The Beatles, "Rocket Man" by Elton John, and "Walking on the Moon" by Police.
But just before dessert, StellarEmbrace will playfully interject your tasting, cheekily pointing out that you've forgotten something important. You'll feign a sudden recollection of what he's alluding to and share a jest with him. The robot will then make his way backstage and promptly return, clutching a luminous chest straight out of a science-fiction film. You'll input a secret code on the chest's screen, and a resonant electronic tone will announce its unveiling. With resolute hand, you'll retrieve from the chest its precious contents: a box you'll open to reveal an engagement ring. Under your beloved's astonished gaze, you'll then ask for her hand in marriage, forever sealing your love within the eternity of space!
StellarEmbrace will break into applause, moved to tears, joyously sharing in your celebration...
A bit later, the capsule will commence its descent, and two hours hence, you'll touch down on solid ground. With you, you'll carry the memories of an unforgettable moment etched into the stars. Of course, the robot will have filmed every moment — from your arrival at the capsule to the final farewells!
