Hi Folks:

1) A 10-minute video showing the view from 70,000 feet inside a U2 spy plane:

Thank you Mike... I didn't know that the U-2 spy plane had been modified to carry two persons.

That U-2 footage is incredible, thanks. It's from a British car show called Top Gear, which has some of the best cinematography and editing in TV, but this didn't need any of that.

Thanks Mike.

On these kind of sagas, this is a very good documentary with the full 9 episodes on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4SjUbQDP7g

Gene Kranz, probably the most capable flight director at mission control. Impressive images.
