    Flight to the edge of space.

    For those of you (like me) who wanted to be a pilot as a kid......this video makes you want to shoot yourself because you fix cars instead.

    I think I saw this vid like 5 years ago. Very cool. At that altitude your stall speed is just a few mph from the sound barrier. Not all aircraft are equipped to go that high even if the air pressure wasn't an issue because if you do stall, you'll dip down and rebuild your airspeed, break the sound barrier and disintegrate. It's something the U2 pilots have to contend with.
