‘World View’: An Outer-Space Balloon Capsule Ride

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” ~ T. S. Eliot  World View has come up with the pretty amazing idea of a balloon capsule space ride. The Tuscon, Arizona based company will allow people to fly 20 miles above the ground via this contraption.  By 2016, World View plans on letting 8 passengers take a 4 hour round trip into “space.” The travel capsule will soar for about 1-1/2 hours before reaching its preferred height, and it will then slowly descend back to Earth giving riders spectacular views on both ends of the field.
