Space travel

Space travel or just hot air?

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. Check the website for more, and if you have the cash handy, to book: http://www.inbloon.com/
