Watch World View explain its unique approach to space business and tourism

World View’s new spaceport in Tucson, Arizona is focused on a unique task: Launching high altitude balloons that will take equipment, and eventually people, to the Earth’s stratosphere to do work in an edge-of-space operating theater. We got the chance to go to the facility’s grand opening, and interview CEO and co-founder Jane Poynter, as well as co-founder and former NASA astronaut Mark Kelly, and CTO Taber McCallum.

Bonus: Some incredible footage captured by the many missions World View has already run, which gives you a tantalizing sneak peek at thew view aspiring tourists can hope to see when the company eventually begins paid trips, with tickets starting at $75,000 per seat.
