TRAVELING to the edge of space will soon be possible thanks to a new groundbreaking pressurized capsule or “space balloon” experience. French startup Zephalto announced it will offer a six-hour trip up to the stratosphere or the top of Earth in a space balloon named Celeste for a fine-dining dinner with “unparalleled views”. “You’re in the darkness of space, but without the zero-gravity experience.”Zephalto is aiming for 60 flights per year starting in 2025. Zephalto promises to offer the best space experience and views without actually breaking through the atmosphere. The space balloon can hold up to six passengers at a time and two pilots with 215 square ft of room.
