    Firm to offer balloon rides from Alaska to the edge of space

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A company wants to use an advanced balloon to fly customers from Earth's surface in Alaska to the highest reaches of the planet's atmosphere. Florida-based startup firm Space Perspective plans to use the Pacific Spaceport Complex in Kodiak to serve as one of the launch sites for the vehicle, called the Spaceship Neptune, The Anchorage Daily News reported Sunday. The balloon rides will be manned by a flight crew taking eight passengers in a pressurized capsule suspended beneath a hydrogen balloon the size of a football stadium. Each passenger could pay an estimated $125,000 for a six-hour journey. Mark Lester, CEO of Alaska Aerospace Corp., said the high-altitude rides will be available from Kodiak in a few years and will support Alaska tourism.

    Yikes, maybe potential passengers should Google, "What happened on May 6, 1937 in New Jersey"? Hint, Hydrogen filled zeppelin ignites when attempting to dock!

    Things seem to always go wrong for me, not for me. Good luck to those who want to go on rides.

    "Helium has become quite difficult to obtain," Space Perspective founder and co-CEO Taber MacCallum said during a news conference.... explaining the choice of lift gas. "It's used for a lot of medical practices and for launching rockets."

    mmmkay... you make a critical safety decision based on availability and price of materials, rather than specify the best material for the job? That's exactly the same reason Germany focussed on inflammable hydrogen... because the major producers wouldn't sell helium to them and they couldn't make enough of their own.
