    "You’re out in the open… In a place where the sky is inky black… There’s no
    air to breathe… The pressure is 150 times less than at sea level… It’s
    minus 100 degrees Fahrenheit…

    And the view is nothing short of sensational.

    In the summer of 2002 Andy Elson and Colin Prescot will travel to the outer
    limits of the Earth’s atmosphere in QinetiQ 1. From their open gondola they
    will be able to look up to the biggest manned balloon in history. Looking
    down they’ll see stretching beneath them a sight only a few brave souls
    will ever experience - a 650,000 square mile panorama of the earth.

    You can’t imagine what it’s like to see your world from 132,000 feet. But
    on this website you don't have to. Here, you can share the experience from
    the build up over the next few months to launch itself. "
