world record height of 85,135 feet by the SR-71 Blackbird was accomplished in 1976. I was quite familiar with this bird, as it was parked in a hanger very close to my office when I worked at the Ames Research Center. I actually walked up to and touched it. There was no visible security. It's a rare commercial flight that gets up to 45,000 feet.
On the ground, I wonder why there was no dominating Red Bull Stratos symbol:
he set exactly 65 years ago.
Hurricane Paul has shot up to 120 MPH and is projected to threaten Baha. Raphael should soon become a hurricane and affect the Bermudas.
