“We have always dreamed of going to space, and are excited to partner with World View on this adventure and experience,” said The Chainsmokers. “We know these views of Earth and space will be amazing and exciting, and we hope to use this flight to unleash our creativity for future projects.” »
With commercial tourist drum flying starting in 2024, The Chainsmokers will be among the first explorers to experience this stratospheric adventure. The Chainsmokers will record a concert inside the World View capsule, giving viewers the chance to experience the musical performance first-hand as well as the artists’ journey to the far reaches of space. Further information on concerts and recordings will be announced at a later date.
“We are incredibly excited to welcome hit artists The Chainsmokers to experience this exciting adventure on one of our flights,” said Ryan Hartman, President and CEO of World View. “One of our goals is to make space tourism more accessible to people from all walks of life, including artists whose abilities we know to provide strong testimonies when they have been able to admire the wonders of the earth and from space. World View is proud of to be the first space tourism company to offer this experience to musical artists. “
World Vision Mission: Rediscovering the Earth
Unlike other space tourism companies, World View flights will start from Seven Wonders of the World (Stratospheric Edition Seven), including the Grand Canyon, the Great Barrier Reef, the Serengeti, the Northern Lights, the Amazon, the Pyramids of Giza and The Great Wall of China, which allows explorers to admire natural and human wonders from the earth to the far reaches of space.
The cost of the flight is $ 50,000, with a security deposit of $ 500 required to secure a seat. Eight explorers and two World View crew members will be transported in a zero-pressure stratospheric balloon and a space capsule under pressure at up to 30 kilometers altitude, nearly 48 kilometers into the stratosphere, for a transformative experience that will last six to eight hours. Explorers will take off before dawn to watch the sunrise over the Earth, admire the curvature of our planet and experience the darkness of space. They will see a world without borders and without race and immerse themselves fully in the beauty, fragility, history and importance of the areas around each place, as well as the Earth itself.
