You Can Go 20 Miles Above The Earth In A Balloon — But Can You Afford It! Find Out How Expensive It Is To Be A Daredevil!

| Filed under: Space!TravelViral: News

no title

Have you ever wanted to ride in a balloon about twenty miles above the Earth, looking down on all of us from above?!

As crazy as that sounds, you can actually do that with a new company called World View. They are offering customers the opportunity to do a little space tourism — but only if you have $75,000 for it.

Basically, here's what they're offering:the company has created a high-altitude balloon to carry passengers a whopping 20 miles above the Earth. They say that allows you to see 99% of the Earth's atmosphere!

The craft holds six passengers, plus the two crew member who need to, ya know, fly the balloon up and down and out into space and back… And apparently, it takes about six hours to complete the flight, with the balloon rising to, yes, more than 100,000 feet off of the surface of the Earth!

But you know what?! If you've got the money to fork out, and a little bit of a crazy side, why not?! After all, it is pretty AH-mazing that traveling nowadays doesn't necessarily mean staying on the planet to do it!!!

What do U think? Crazy idea that you'd never consider, or are you up in space the moment you get an extra $75,000?!

NASA Releases Amazing Parody Video Called All About That Space!

| Filed under: YouTubeScience!Space!

no title

Love it!!!

And we bet Meghan Trainor does, too!

Some interns over at NASA have created a viral video spoofing on Meghan's song All About That Bass and it's called All About That Space.

The interns taped it at the Johnson Space Center in Houston after the successful launch of the Orion space capsule.

Some of the lyrics included lines like:

"I'm all about that space
'Bout that space, space travel
I'm bringing rockets back
Go ahead and tell the whole world that
We're doing exploration. Come on, board it stat
We're ready for liftoff
Every spacecraft needs propulsion from
the bottom to the top."

The YouTube video is currently at 299,300 views, but we expect that number to go up like a space rocket blasting off into space!

Props to these interns for making space exploration even more interesting which we thought was impossible…

…Because seriously who doesn't love space?!?! It's way better to watch than television at least, ha!
