World View passengers will soar to an altitude of about 30 kilometers (about 100,000 feet) -- far short of SpaceShipTwo's intended 110-kilometer (68-mile) high peak. Inside the capsule there will be little sensation of microgravity. Rather, the whole point of the ride is the view.


For $75,000, I expect to get a ride in a Vomit Comet as well as the balloon ride.
