Blue Origin has unveiled a first look at its capsule that will one day launch tourists in space, according to CNN. The capsule features six seats arranged in a circle that are also adjacent to windows the size of car doors.

CEO Jeff Bezos referred to them as the "largest windows in space."

Surprisingly, the capsule is pretty large--about 530 square feet, which is bigger than the average Manhattan studio. The company said it's 10 times the amount of elbow room that space pioneer Alan Shepard had on his Mercy flight in 1961 when he became the first American in space.

Though Blue Origin has revealed what the interior of the capsule would look like, it still has not addressed how much it intends on charging for a ticket. 

Bezos plans to conduct the first test flights by the end of 2017.
