JOURNEY TO SPACE
Space. The final frontier. How bold are you?
It is a stupendous thing and everyone will be talking about this trip over the next 3 or 4 years’. If you want to be part of it, you may be surprised at how reasonably it is priced.
The one oddity about considering this trip is in that although you should book now – to get in on the ‘first wave’ – we can’t tell you when that will be.
At present, there are two ways to do it: Rocket or Balloon.
Now I know what you’re thinking:
‘ROCKET!!!!!!!!!!!!!’ or ‘balloon?’
But it’s not quite as clear cut a decision as you might think.
As things stand, you are likely to get up sooner by balloon and it costs roughly half the rocket ticket price.
Our advice is, book both! Call us and we’ll explain the ins-and-outs.
Bloon (zero 2 infinity) is a, no-training-required ascent to near space in relative comfort in a spacious donut-shaped capsule. A coupe of laps of the mother ship and then back down.
Virgin Galactic will involve a training course and then into the space vehicle attached to the custom-made launch vehicle up to high altitude before an adrenalin-fuelled (and rocket fuelled) screech into the upper atmosphere, shortly followed by the glide back down.
As we sit today, both Bloon and Virgin Galactic are still engaged in development testing but it seems likely that the balloon will go up first.
