Within the next two years travelers with $140,000 to spend will be able to take a balloon flight into space. Spanish businessman Jose Lopez-Urdiales plans to launch the ‘bloon’ which will climb up to 36km above the Earth. Trips will last an hour each way and 4 passengers and 2 pilots will be treated to views of the Earth’s curvature and even get a glimpse of deep space. Flights are expected to start in 2013.
