A look into EOS-X SPACE’s spaceship capsules reveals pressurized capsules which can accommodate up to eight people, including the pilot.  The zero-emission, helium-filled balloon will take passengers to an altitude of 131,234 feet, or about 25 miles above Earth, from its base in Seville. The entire journey will span approximately five hours: a two-hour ascent, a two-hour cruise at peak altitude, and a one-hour descent. The journey begins at dawn, as the helium-filled stratospheric balloon slowly ascends, providing passengers with a two-hour ascent to take in the awe-inspiring views. Once at the desired altitude – which is an altitude of around 40,000 meters – passengers will have two hours to soak in the breathtaking sights and enjoy the amenities of the pressurised cabin. Post this the descent will begin and bring back the passengers with a bag full of memories and visuals that are unimaginable.
