James May, of the BBC program Top Gear, recently had an opportunity to fly to the edge of space in a U-2 reconnaissance aircraft. Here's a video clip of what he saw and experienced.
Awesome indeed! I'd love to experience flight at that altitude. Perhaps, before I die, I may win the lottery . . . that's the only way I'll be able to afford a quick sub-orbital trip aboard one of Virgin Galactic's spacecraft, or one of its competitors. Here's hoping, anyway!
