1-plane-how-far-can-fly

Why can’t you fly a plane to space? Turns out, you couldn’t even make it halfway.

Part of the problem is Earth’s gravity. You need to escape it in order to reach space.

This requires a minimum speed of mach 33 (25,000 mph). The current world record for fastest plane is only mach 6.7 (5,140 mph). The other problem is the atmosphere.
