James May, from Top Gear U.K., got a once in a lifetime opportunity to ride along to the edge of space on a U2 spyplane. As you will notice in the video below, he was very moved by the whole experience. Pay particular attention to the comment he makes at the end of the video. To paraphrase, he states that if everyone on Earth got the chance to take just one ride like this it would change the way we think about everything from politics to religion.
I couldn’t agree more. If I ever had the chance to do this, I would be the first in line for such a glorious opportunity.
