Cosmos Tourism

Space journey “low cost”! 75.000 dollars for a seat on board of the World View Experience, a luxurious space capsule for tourists.

As we can read on the website: “Imagine floating in the immensity of space, gazing at spectacular views of our planet. Now this captivating, transformative experience – once reserved only for astronauts – is a voyage you can take to the frontier of space for a view of our world like none other.”

Thanks to a helium-filled balloon, the module can go up 30 kilometers, enough to see the Earth's horizon, sailing the stratosphere for two hours.

World View flights are planned to start in approximately three years, and the company intends to be able to launch from several different locations.
Voyage to the edge of space, the journey of a lifetime!

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
