What exactly does World View Enterprises do?

“World View’s disruptive Stratollite flight platform enables previously unthinkable applications at a fraction of the cost of existing technology. Stratollites serve a variety of mission functions – from short duration research flights to long-duration flights over specific areas of interest – and serve a broad range of critical commercial needs and applications.”

Why is any of this important? 

“Stratollites offer all the advantages of high-altitude balloons – low-cost, rapid deployability, and low-impact flight – with an innovative new development: the ability to fly a variety of trajectories – from circumnavigating the Earth to persistence over a specific location.”

Statollites can be used for communications, weathers, remote sensing, and research.

But why?

When the planet is viewed from space, this experience can have tremendous impact on how we see ourselves, our planet, and our universe. For the future of the human race, it is  imperative that we find balance and sustainability working with our planet and the resources available and not destroy them.

We are on right on the edge of sending humans to live on another planet, it’s extremely important, and our responsibility, that we work together to solve many of the problems on Earth (environmental, ecological, societal, and political) so we can take these lessons with us to our new future home planet and make a better future for generations to come.
