A Japanese startup, Iwaya Giken, has created the world's first airtight cabin, the T-10 Earther, which will be available soon for trips to the edge of space. The cabin will be attached to a helium balloon and is capable of carrying two people 15 miles above the Earth, allowing them to enjoy the view for an hour before descending. Initially, the cost per trip will be around $180,000. Applications to be considered as a passenger will open this week, with the first five passengers to be revealed in October.
