World View Become A Voyager

The balloon that could take you to ‘the edge of space’ for $75,000 just got real

According to Business Insider UK a company called World View is planning to float passengers to “the edge of space” — about 20 miles into the sky — via balloon by the end of 2016.

While there is no real consensus on where exactly space begins, the International Astronautical Federation thinks it starts at the 100-kilometer mark — about 62 miles up. According to that definition, this 5-hour joy ride get you 1/3 of the way there.

It will also include cocktails, stunning views of the stars, the blackness of space, and the curvature of Earth, all for the hefty sum of $75,000 — about the price of a new entry-level Tesla.

Reserve your spot here. Become A Voyager.
