“With our proprietary high-altitude balloons, World View offers an accessible, affordable way to access nearspace. As a Voyager, you will enjoy a suborbital spaceflight unlike any other. Gently floating up into nearspace with World View, Voyagers now have the unique opportunity to experience what space philosopher and writer Frank White calls the “Overview Effect,” the unexpected emotional reaction and unparalleled perspective-shift that comes from seeing our planet suspended in space.” – World View Enterprises

World View had a successful high-altitude test flight of a 10% scale model on Tuesday.

Tycho(the test vehicle) flew to an altitude of 120,000 feet, descended, and then parafoiled to earth from 50,000 feet. This set a record for highest parafoil flight.
