A company offering six-hour baloon flights into space. Soaring 100,000 feet into space under a balloon the size of a football field, the fare is $125,000 per seat (eight people can book the entire capsule for $1M). All 300 flights for 2024 are already booked. The capsule takes off on land and lands in the ocean where it is lifted onto a ship so that passengers can disembark.

Holding eight passengers and a pilot, the company touts a smooth ride into space that is nothing like the experience in a rocket. (Image courtesy of Space Perspective, www.spaceperspective.com)
