Would You Like To Fly To The Edge Of Space In A Capsule? (7 pics + 1 gif)

Posted in Lifestyle » Science   28 Jan 2016   / 3332 views

If you want to have a near-space experience, the World View company will make it happen. They already planned for commercial flights to be carried out in their stylish high-tech capsules in 2017.

Six passengers and 2 crew members will be launched in a pressurized capsule into the stratosphere attached to a high-altitude balloon filled with helium. The flight will take about 4 to 6 hours and after the descent, the voyagers will be transported back to the launching site on a private aircraft.

Aboard the capsule everything's made for you comfort: a refreshment bar, a restroom and an internet access so you could share your videos and photos in real time.

I hope that's a parachute strapped to the back of that capsule, just in case.

If it jams, force it!
If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway...
