Who Wants to Ride on the Space Gondola?

(click link above for full story)

A new Arizona company called WorldView will soon be offering rides in a “space gondola”. The craft, which will be supported by a giant helium balloon, will hold 6 passengers and two pilots, and fly at an altitude of around 100,000ft (~19 miles), high enough for passengers to see the Earth framed against the blackness of space, and also high enough for them to perceive Earth’s curvature. The price tag? $75,000.
