How much does it cost to go to space for a day?

In 2019 the cost of a flight to space stood at around $50 million. However, SpaceX, Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic and others work to make that cost more affordable for the mass population.

In fact, one firm WorldView offers an interesting option that involves parachuting back to earth. As a result, charge an affordable $50,000 a ticket. And of course, our first question was on the safety.

So, we asked WorldView what would happen if a parachute broke during the re-entry process?

WorldView responded to us on Facebook with the following statement:

“The entire system is designed and tested to be incredibly safe. From the design of the spaceflight capsule to the helium-filled zero-pressure balloon flight system and the patented parafoil landing system, safety at every step is our primary objective. We have also designed several redundant safety measures if any of the primary safety measures malfunction during flight. For instance, if the parafoil system fails during landing. We also have a backup parachute system that deploys to gently slow and land the capsule.”
