Ultra-high Altitude Flight

A company we work with, JP Aerospace, designed and operated this airship over California at 95,085 feet. Each of those propellers are 5 feet in diameter and optimized for the altitude near 100,000 feet, the total airship is about 30 feet long. If you look carefully, you’ll just begin to see the curvature of the earth against the blackness of space.
