Unlike any other space tourism company, World View flights will be from the Seven Wonders of the World, Stratospheric Edition™, including the Grand Canyon, Great Barrier Reef, Serengeti, Northern Lights, Amazonia, Pyramids of Giza and the Great Wall of China, offering explorers the opportunity to experience natural and man-made wonders from the ground and the far reaches of space.

Eight World View Explorers and two crew members will be transported in a zero-pressure stratospheric balloon and pressurized space capsule to 100,000 feet, nearly 23 miles into the stratosphere, for a transformative experience lasting six to eight hours. Explorers will take off before dawn to watch the sunrise over Earth, see the curvature of the planet and experience the darkness of space. They will see a world without borders, without race and will discover and fully immerse themselves in the beauty, fragility, history and importance of the areas surrounding each place and of the Earth itself.
