The Possible: A Balloon Ride to Space
"A Balloon Ride to Space," episode 4 of THE POSSIBLE, takes you where few have gone before. You'll witness the construction of a technologically advanced balloon that, when inflated, is as big as a football stadium...soar 100,000 feet above Earth...and experience an utterly unique and awe-inspiring perspective on the planet we call home. World View, the company behind the balloon, plans to offer commercial flights starting in 2018. Until then, "A Balloon Ride to Space" is the closest most of us will get to the very edge of space. Then, stay tuned for GE's "Fighting Fire With Fire."
