The edge of space

Having reached a height of 15km in a fighter jet, Dr Iain Stewart marvels at military pilot Joe Kittinger's 1960 balloon ascent to 31km above the Earth. Kittinger parachuted from high in the stratosphere and plummeted through 99% of the gases that make up our atmosphere. Stewart also discusses the layers beyond the stratosphere that are even higher than Kittinger's jumping off point.
