I have built a couple of ready to fly high-altitude, balloon-launched capsules with everything you need right out of the box. Check out the videos on my space memorabilia website.

I edited the subject line of your post and would suggest that you edit your website accordingly to avoid misleading your customers.

Your site states, "Send your things to space!" but your capsules — nor any of the high-altitude balloon-launched payloads — come anywhere close to space. At the cited 156,000 feet, the capsules are less than half-way to the start of space at 62 miles (100 kilometers) altitude.

Got ya, didn't think anyone would actually think it would reach Karman line but good point.

The thing is, there are companies that are offering services to launch items to space — past the Kármán line — on suborbital rockets. So some can advertise "Send your items to space!" and do so without ambiguity.

All times are CT (US)
