This is insane!
A private effort in launching a rocket 121,000 feet - hitting in excess of Mach 3...!
I like this video a lot, as this longer version, displays what it must feel like to get launched and hover near the edge of space. You can hear the motor whine and cough and the sound muffle as the air thins out.
