World View: Outer Space Balloon Capsule Ride

Dec 4, 2019

If you’re looking to make your dreams of flying high above Earth a reality, the folks at World View are just the people you want to talk to. The Tuscon, Arizona based company will allow people to soar 20 miles above the ground from the comforts of a balloon capsule.

Okay so technically it’s still 70 miles away from outer-space, but that doesn’t make this ride any less awesome. By 2016, World View plans on letting 8 passengers take a 4 hour round trip into “space.” The travel capsule will ascend for about 1-1/2 hours before reaching its desired height, and will then slowly descend back to Earth giving riders breathtaking views on both ends of the spectrum. While this experience sounds great, it will cost you. How much you ask? Try $75,000. Watch the video below.
