  • Kerp, edge of space means the upper edge of Earth's atmosphere. Not even as high as a space shuttle.

    **shrug** No more insane to me than seeking the New World in three ships no longer than 70, or circumnavigating the globe with no idea how to fix longitude (that secret wasn't discovered till the 1770s).

  • As for the "edge of space" Space is infinite. And Richard Branson, while he is a great business man, he's an idiot.

  • Does that guy even know where the edge of space is? Does ANYONE? What a jerk.
    I am happy staying right here on earth.
