For $75,000, a company called World View Enterprises will send you 19 miles up into Earth's atmosphere using a high-altitude balloon.

The ride won't earn passengers their NASA credentials - outer space is generally considered to begin at an altitude of 62 miles - but the company boasts the ride will afford balloon riders spectacular views of "the blackness of space and the curvature of our planet."

This is a video animation of the ride:
