It's not mere pedantry, and everyone is subject to FAA approval if and whenever they're operating in US airspace.Can't help wondering if the same degree of pedantry would have been applied to a Musk or Bezos mission.
Yes - this would be the highest altitude (crewed mission; apogee farthest outward from the earth's surface) since the Apollo lunar missions.Would that make them the humans to go furthest, since the moon landing?
