So what actually is a near-space odyssey?? Well for £380,000 you get a private group space travel with the bloon company. Imagine being able to say that you have actually been to space, do you know how insane that sounds???? How many people besides astronauts can actually say that ??? Not a lot that’s for sure.
For me, this sounds like an absolute dream because I am one of those annoying people that is always questioning shit; such as did we actually land on the moon? What do astronauts do because it’s clear they don’t spend the majority of their time in space like your average job. Are we sure the earth isn’t flat and does the government genuinely watch and listen to everything we do? So this experience would be able to disprove my so-called ‘dumb’ conspiracy theories ?.
Astronauts have always described the view of earth from space as a life-changing experience. For me, I know for a fact that this entire experience would in some sort of way change the way I see life, I don’t know why I feel like this but do you know when people say they feel as though they’re in the presence of a greater being, whether or not that may be God, that is exactly how I would feel if i went to space and then seeing just how small the world is would make me feel some sort of way, as in it would make me appreciate everything a lot more. In addition to that, I think it would also make me feel so grateful because in reality this is a once in a lifetime experience and to be able to afford it is honestly a WOW.
Seeing as we now live in an environmentally cautious era – 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. Being devoid of any combustible fuels means that Bloon’s ascent is gentle, has zero impact on the environment, and is entirely noiseless. So if you can get on a plane, yacht or car you can definitely get on this feeling a lot less guilty.
Do take note that the Bloon pod is safe for children (those below 16 must be accompanied by an adult). A report from your physician and a simple medical checkup is needed to ensure you and your fellow Bloon travellers can enjoy the flight safely. The pod also holds up to four people and all bookings are subject to availability and weather conditions. We advise booking at least six months in advance to guarantee the desired date and time.
