American company plans to take tourists to space in a balloon in 2024
New Delhi: Fancy a luxurious ride in a balloon? If so, the one shown in this photo is the right balloon for that. It was not a normal balloon that rose up, circled four times, and landed on the ground. Strictly speaking, this is a new type of spacecraft.
This is a new experiment in space tourism. If one sits in a relaxed manner in this, one can go to the edges of space. One can go up a hundred thousand feet from the ground, and from there one can gaze upon the ball-like globe.
This is not the only feature of it. In this, all the luxuries and facilities of star hotels are available. The name of this luxury spacecraft is 'Spaceship Neptune'. America's private space tourism company 'Space Perspective' is making arrangements to take tourists to space in 2024. This company claims that it will provide tourists with a luxurious experience of space travel for the first time in the world.
'Spacecraft Neptune' is almost the size of a football field. Its length is seven hundred feet, and when fully expanded, its volume is 1.8 million cubic feet. According to the information of the company, if you travel in it, you can see the entire globe in 360 degrees. To travel in this, one has to pay 1.25 lakh dollars (Rs. 99.61 lakhs) and book a seat.
