Huge balloon will take tourists 100,000 feet into space by 2017

TUCSON, ARIZONA — World View Enterprises is offering to send passengers to an altitude of 100,000 feet above the ground in a space capsule hauled up by a giant balloon for a lofty sum of $75,000, according to the enterprise's website. Once fully inflated with helium, the balloon will expand to about the size of a football stadium. The capsule will be equipped with large windows and will be able to carry up to six passengers and two crewmen. The capsule is equipped with wifi for the journey into space. It even has a bar. The ascend into the stratosphere will take roughly 90 minutes to two hours and will cruise for another two hours before descending. The balloon will separate from the capsule at 50,000 feet above ground before the parawing glides the capsule to the landing site. The balloon will be recovered once it falls back to earth to be recycled. The total flight time will be five to six hours. On October 24, 2015, World View Enterprises launched a successful test flight with a 1,000-pound replica of the capsule. World View is now ready to begin a full-scale manned flight in mid-July of 2017 and hopes to bring the space tour to life at the end of the same year, World View chief technology officer Taber MacCallum said.----------------------------------------­­---------------------Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
