Sip champagne at the edge of space – For just $50,000 this balloon space craft will take passengers on a 12 hour journey to space.

It is not every day that Earthlings gaze at stars from a unique perspective, aka the edge of the Earth. A few years ago, going on a trip to space in a balloon spacecraft, sipping champagne, and enjoying the celestial views would seem nothing but unreal. Going to outer space was never recreational up until now. Turning dreams into reality is stratospheric exploration company World View. The company has revealed a full-scale model of the innovative spacecraft, which will seat eight passengers and two crew members. The hexagon-shaped pods are equipped with a climate-controlled, pressurized environment.

To maximize your experience in the stratosphere, the pods sport large elliptical windows measuring 6.5 feet wide x 4.5 feet high, offering impressive views of the Earth’s curvature and its natural wonders. The reclined seats keep passengers comfortable while enjoying the revelation of the exciting line of sight. Other onboard amenities include a cocktail table, graphical user interface (GUI) screen (educational materials and engaging activities), central console, personal storage, and beverage holder.
