Tech News

(CNN) – Hot air balloons are getting an upgrade. 

Florida company, Space Perspective is developing one that’s out of this world called “Spaceship Neptune.”

It’s designed to transport a pilot and eight travelers in a pressurized capsule suspended from an enormous blimp.

The company hopes to start taking space tourists in a few years.

The ride would take the adventurous about 100,000 feet into the air for about six hours.

You can reserve a seat on Space Perspective’s website for approximately $125,000 each.
