Jeff Bezos wants his space company Blue Origin's future customers to have the best views possible.

The company recently released the latest concept images of its passenger capsules, and as described by Bezos, also the founder of Amazon, “every seat's a window seat, the largest windows ever in space.”

The New Shepard capsule, named after Alan Shepard, a member of NASA’s Mercury 7 class of astronauts who was the first American man in space, would take intrepid travelers on a suborbital space flight during which they would experience the feeling of weightless zero gravity before arriving back on Earth.

Bezos has plans to get those first space tourists into orbit in 2018, but what these out-of-this-world journeys will cost is anyone’s guess -- early estimates place the price of admission around $100,000.

Check out concept images of the capsule below.
