In June 2014, World View, the commercial balloon spaceflight company, successfully completed a scaled test flight of its high-altitude balloon systems and broke the world record for the highest parafoil flight in the process. Though components of the experience have been tested in the past, this marks the first time all elements of the spaceflight system were tested together. It was a huge success and a major milestone for the company.

The World View Voyager Human Spaceflight experience presents a drastically different approach to the adrenaline-laced rocket ride we think of today when we hear "space tourism." World View will have its Voyagers, planet earth's new class of citizen explorers, gliding peacefully along the edge of space for a two-hour sailing-like experience comfortably situated inside a pressurized capsule (complete with a bar, lavatory, and even WiFi) transported via high-altitude balloon.
