No, I want him to be totally clueless about dying as well and live a gloriously long life that includes surviving this and waking up to reality, at which point he turns his efforts to helping humanity in some really effective way and ends his long life looking back laughing at himself surrounded by people he loves and who love him.

This first flight appears to be a test of his equipment and/or publicity stunt (for funding for the bigger effort) because he could get higher up by buying an plane ticket.

"Hughes’s ultimate goal is a subsequent launch that puts him miles above the Earth, where the 61-year-old limousine driver hopes to photograph proof of the disc we all live on."

"Question: What is the highest altitude an airplane can reach without getting damaged?

-- submitted by reader Sarah, Victoria, B.C.

Answer: Every airplane has a certified maximum altitude. During test flights this maximum is exceeded slightly to verify the airplane remains safe should it have cause to ascend from that limit. The highest certified altitude of an airliner was Concorde's 60,000 feet. Today some of the corporate jets can fly at 51,000 feet.

Q: What is the highest cruising altitude allowed?

-- RJ, Green Bay

A: Most airliners are limited to 45,000 feet or less."

That will be a lot less funny on YouTube. ;)
