Space Balloon Company Launches Ticket Sales (Video)
A space tourism company in Florida began selling tickets yesterday (Wednesday) for six-hour balloon rides to the stratosphere starting in 2024.
Space Perspective plans up to 25 flights in the first year into what is the second major layer of the Earth's atmosphere and extends to about 31 miles (or more than 163,000 feet) above the planet's surface.
But the tickets aren’t cheap… they cost $125,000 each.
** Up to eight passengers will ride in a pressurized capsule with an experienced pilot, a bar and a bathroom. The trip will end with a splashdown.
