You’ve seen the balloon outside the “edge of space”. But now, not just to see where you can go on a hot air balloon like the World View, we will surprise us space travel by balloon
Space travel by balloonÂ in Tucson
A new airship in Tucson will bring you a very different experience than a plane. Those traveling by hot air balloon will be started in 2017. Instead of putting passengers climb 7 miles of an aircraft, the company’s World View will take you up high enough to look at the darkness of space travel, about 19 miles in a hot air balloon.
The formal definition of outer space is the Von Karman line at an altitude 62 miles . Therefore, the experience of World View not necessarily put you really into space. But high enough to help you realize the earth is not a plane, enough to see the space and about special black front.
Passengers will sit in a pressurized chamber can accommodate 6 people. It took about 90 minutes to up to a height of 100,000 feet in a balloon the size of a golf ball and then, they will have 2 to 3 hours looking at and experiencing space on it before going down slowly. Balloon will slowly release the helium gas until a certain time, the passenger will be parachuted to the landing. Of course, you could end up landing in a place 300 miles from Tucson , it is necessary to help a private plane to take you back to Tucson for about 1 to 2 hours.
Worldview will be headquartered at Spaceport Tucson an uninhabited places in America. Although it can not really take you into space, but only $ 75,000 figure is half the price of a ticket and not Xcor one third the price of a Virgin Galactic ticket (not the travel service time by spacecraft in the future). So it’s a great start for those who have $ 75,000 in hand.
