This balloon will take you to the edge of space

A hot air balloon that will take tourists 32 kilometers above Earth has completed its first test flight. The ride will cost $75,000 per person and transport spectators so high they can catch a view of Earth’s curves. The photo above was taken during this past week’s test and offers consumers a glimpse of what they’ll be paying for. Rides begin in 2016 and take off from New Mexico, Mashable reports.
