There are hundreds of videos capturing GoPros ascending into the cosmos on weather balloons. Now, inhabitants of Earth might get the chance to experience floating to the edge of space firsthand. Travel startup Space Perspective plans to send passengers to the stratosphere on their space balloon Neptune. The eight-person pressurized capsule will launch from NASA's Kennedy Space Center and begin a two-hour climb 100,000 feet above the ground. From there, guests will float around above Earth admiring our home planet, the stars, and the vast darkness that surrounds them while taking advantage of the onboard refreshments bar and lavatory. The capsule will then begins to descend for an ocean landing where passengers will board a ship, completing the six-hour journey. Rides are expected to begin in 2021.
