I need to do more reading on the U2, clearly. That's nuts. How is there enough atmosphere there to fly through?

Why else do you think it has such long wings ;)

The SR-71 flies even higher...

To get some stories on both of these and the F-117, check out Ben Rich's book:

Also: you know what former Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen is doing when he's not helping build the world's largest aircraft?

Oh, nothing...

man since hd and 4k video anything that isn't, even from the very recent past, seems so old and dated.



For some reason that kinda piss's me off and makes me feel old even tho I have no interest in watching anything that isn't.

I love that. I like looking at pics of massive ships in the Shipyard. Thinking of the same one your looking at sitting at the bottom of the ocean adds a whole new level.

I've often seen pictures from the International Space Station that were taken from inside of the Cupola, which gives a window for residents home to Earth:

...What I've seldom seen is a picture from outside the Cupola, looking in:
