Astronauts have always described the view of earth from space as a life-changing experience. An opportunity once reserved only for astronauts, travelling into near-space is now a reality thanks to the innovative technology of Bloon. Bloon is a zero-emission vehicle that relies on a large ‘sail’ filled with static helium gas capable of lifting its capsule 22 miles into the earth’s atmosphere. If you were to drift much further than that, you’d be out of the earth’s stratosphere completely! Being devoid of any combustible fuels means that Bloon’s ascent is gentle, has zero impact on the environment, and is entirely noiseless.
Introducing Bloon: the most luxurious near-space flight experience. The technologies of stratospheric balloons are well proven and the team at Zero2Infinity has adopted this for commercial use. The Bloon system uses inert helium gas and employs no combustible fuels or hazardous substances. The ascent and descent are graceful and quiet, if you can fly on an airline, you can fly on Bloon. The Bloon space flight experience starts with a space flight designer who will take you through the entire process and to customise the trip. You can decide on the desired takeoff location as well as the food and beverages to be served during the space flight (options include Michelin-star meals). Bloon flights are designed to takeoff from anywhere and land (just about) anywhere in the world. The cabin is pressurised and set to a comfortable 22°C (72°F), with more room per passenger than an Airbus A380 First Class cabin. Panoramic windows will provide you with a 360° view of the overall experience. Arrive at the takeoff location the day before to receive a pre-flight briefing and some rest. Lift-off is scheduled around 4am to take advantage of the amazing colours of dawn at the apex of the trip. The full ascent takes approximately 1 hour, reaching an ultimate height of 36km above the earth. Cruise at near-space for approximately 2 hours before beginning to descend. The field of view at the top is approximately 1,400km in diameter - that is, you will be able to see Paris and Rome from the same window. We are currently taking pre-bookings for 2020 and 2021, priced from £380,000, entitling you to a private pod dedicated to your group. Up to four people can fit into each flight pod (take as many or few as you wish). Booking enquiries can be made via Truly by emailing [email protected].
