There isn't much up there. Not sure what they're gonna tour. The flight school/FBO I work at has the fuel contract for it. We go up there about 1 or 2 times a month.

The owner of the FBO tried to make a grand entrance awhile back for a meeting he had up there and decided to skydive down into it. Got arrested on the spot. Was funny!

$75,000 for several hours 19 miles above earth in a balloon. Sounds really cool!

This should get interesting. Lots of $$ for no use so far. At least the rocket reached a whopping 1000 feet!

I guess we should never underestimate the extreme need for some people to spend their disgustingly large amounts of disposable income on new and stupid stuff....
