Ever seen a satellite like this? The STARSHINE 2 was covered in carefully polished mirrors and placed in orbit for a year. As it went around the Earth, it was watched from the ground and used to calculate the density of the Earth’s upper atmosphere - Space Shuttle Endeavour - STS-108 - December 2001

Virgin Galactic reached 260,000 feet (80km) today, passing into space by some standards. The spacecraft should be able to reach around 100km on future test flights and their first tourists should be lifting off next year.
