History all around us

Not only did they open up the door for future private venture trips to space, but they also beat the 41 year old record for altitude reached by an airplane. And they chose this day because 47 years ago the Soviets put Sputnik 1 into space, launching the first space race. Check out all the details as well as pics at space.com
