    I wonder what they are planning for their next trick?

        You could probably do it cheaper by paying someone with a hot air balloon to take you up. Nice thinking though.

          I could be wrong but I reckon max height of a hot air balloon is somewhat short of 28km...

            They get pretty high but the record is a lowly 21km. And even local balloon rides cost over $250... add the cost of special equipment required for balloon rides over about 5kms and your budget is well and truly blown...

              Actually the first man in space/edge of space went up in a hot air balloon. He went up 31km and jumped

                That ain't a hot air balloon which you could pay someone to take you up in for under $170 though
