Ever want to fly to the edge of space?

Really cool 10-minute video of James May (of Top Gear fame) being a passenger in a U2.  The view is really cool, and I love how they can see the curvature of the earth.  You can see how far up they are when you see how far a commercial passenger plane is flying below.

Because they have to wear a full space suit, they do run across a couple problems.  First is how to take care of an itch on the face.  The second is how to eat a meal.

Video and background here.
