RESEARCH NEEDED  INTO  THIS  IS  IT  EVEN TRUE  BUT  WHATS  INTERESTING  IS  ONLY  51 THOUSAND  FEET  THATS  WHAT  IVE  SAID  IS AS  HIGH  AS  YOU  CAN  GO
On May 27, 1931, Auguste Piccard and Paul Kipfer took off fromAugsburgGermany, and reached a record altitude of 15,781 m (51,775 ft). (FAI Record File Number 10634) During this flight, Piccard was able to gather substantial data on the upper atmosphere, as well as measurecosmic rays. On 18 August 1932, launched from Dübendorf, Switzerland, Piccard and Max Cosynsmade a second record-breaking ascent to 16,201 m (53,153 ft).
