With a growing number of companies on the verge of sending private citizens into space on rockets, there’s a movement to send people to space on a….slower pace. World View Enterprises has plans (and a high tech balloon) to start sending people on commercial flights to the edge of space starting in 2018.  With a mission to give people a true “global perspective” on our planet, the experience sounds like the ride of a lifetime.  Check out this fascinating video on their mission to take people over 100,000 feet above Earth.
