Featured interview: Zephalto founder Vincent Farret d'Astiès
First Move with Julia Chatterley
May 26, 2023

French startup Zephalto is offering flights to the edge of space in a pressurized capsule attached to a helium balloon. The firm says the craft will take off from a French spaceport and ascend for around 90 minutes, reaching an altitude of 25 kilometers (82,000 feet). Not surprisingly, given this is a French company, one of the main attractions of the trip is feasting on food prepared by Michelin-star chefs. Joining Julia to discuss is Zephalto founder Vincent Farret d'Astiès. 

Also on today's show: Daniel Ives, Managing Director and Senior Equity Research Analyst at Wedbush Securities; Greg Valliere, Chief US Policy Strategist at AGF.
