If space tourism is in your bucket list, here comes some news that will excite you. A Florida-based start-up is working towards sending people to the edge of space beneath a football stadium-sized high-performance balloon and pressurised capsule. This human space flight company, Space Perspective, recently announced plans to launch from the Shuttle Landing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida, with the first un-crewed test flight scheduled in early 2021.
To book a ticket for the six-hour journey, passengers may have to cough up an estimated $125,000.
