Near Space: The New Frontier by Zero2Infinity
The dream of space travel has been an iconic vision of interstellar exploration and science fiction fancy in the heart of every child and many adults. While technology and advancement have allowed us to place men on the moon and sat satellites in orbit, even a rover on Mars, thus far the general public has not had the opportunity to explore outer space themselves. With the Bloon project operated by the Zero2Infinity corporation, in the very near future adventurers seeking near space experiences will find their dreams coming true.
How to Bloon
The concept of Bloon is an uncomplicated yet intricately planned expedition to the real final frontier. Utilizing a helium filled balloon sail to propel the Bloon’s ascent, the entire Bloon system is safe and ecologically friendly. Guests will enjoy the ride of a lifetime in luxury accommodation, with private ensuite facilities and panoramic views of the world below. Built for travellers of every age and condition, the Bloon system quietly elevates its passengers above the clouds and into the atmosphere of mystery that envelops our planet.
An Inclusive Journey
When guests schedule a Bloon adventure, their trip offers far more than a simple balloon lift into near space. Arriving in Spain by aeroplane, each guest is transported to the nearby Bloon launch site via an environmentally friendly vehicle. Once each guest arrives at the Zero2Infinity facility, they are checked into a luxury hotel offering the height of ecologically conscious accommodation. Bloon then provides gourmet dining and lounge areas for socialization and discussion about the upcoming flight. Spend the night sleeping underneath the stars thanks to your retractable circular ceiling.
The following day will find each guest following the education and training courses which ensure the safety and success of each flight. An added benefit of this experience is the complimentary massage given to each traveller, ensuring that they are relaxed and rested adequately to garner full enjoyment from their flight. Lifting off that night, guests will have the opportunity to see the sunrise like never before. The colours we are used to associating with a sunrise are nothing like the spectrum that is viewed from above the atmosphere, where the curvature of the earth is easily visible.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast while taking in the impressive beauty of near space, while the Bloon gently rises to its apex. Once at the zenith of its journey, 3 times higher than the cruising altitude of a standard jetliner, the Bloon will begin its gentle descent back to earth. Once your Bloon lands gracefully at the launch facility, the debriefing team will discuss your trip. A commemorative video of your Bloon adventure is presented to each privileged guest, ensuring you are able to relive and share your amazing Bloon experience for years to come.
Taking reservations now, Bloon has set an initial travel date of late 2016 to early 2017. Interested guests may make deposits now to ensure their spot on the journey of a lifetime, where anyone can emulate an astronaut.
