Space Camping

In May 2012, mankind marked yet another milestone in space exploration. No, I'm not talking about the launch of the SpaceX Dragon - cool as that was - I'm talking about space camping.

That's right: Tent-maker Vango launched its camping tent (with cute plush "vangonauts" inside) into space. Geeks Are Sexy has the clip: Link [Embedded YouTube]

Neat video, but not quite space ;-)
Depending on the definition, this (104,000 ft) is between 20% and 40% of the way to space.
At that altitude, you still need to look up to see shooting stars, the atmosphere is thick enough to have slowed down the space shuttle from mach 25 to mach 8... Yes it is very high and you'd need a space suit to survive, but you can't really call it space.
