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?!
