Note the date in the trailer on this paper: July 21 1961



Now on that date the US launched a space mission called Mercury-Redstone 4.



Do we go to space?

The suit you have seen in the trailers is that of which the pilots use of the SR-71. (Fastest Military Jet in the world) The SR-71 flies so high up that the atmosphere is very thin and the suit is vital for the pilots survival. The plane was created as the first stealth jet. Unlike the B-2 bomber and other similar planes of today the stealth aspect was gained by it's 2400+mph speed. First flight was in 1964.



Hope I helped , oh and that's why it looks like the plane is in space in the trailer, iot's just really, really high up.



Have a read at the wiki article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SR-71_Blackbird

Found this youtube clip of a SR-71 at an airshow. It does a few fly bys so obviously not at it's full speed and altitude. Oh yeah, and SR-71 stands for STRATEGIC RECONNAISSANCE-71

kinda off topic but ...



The SR-71 is a bad azz plane. Because it doesn't have the directional boosters that the space shuttle has, it can't leave the atmosphere ... but that's the only reason it couldn't. For all the modern technology out there in aerodynamics, no one has ever been able to build a plane to supersede it. It was strictly a recon plane, but the records it set back in the 1960's when it was first put into use still haven't been broken.



Personally, I think the US government was stupid for decommissioning them. The SR-71, U2, and B-52 are three of the VERY few purchases the US government got way more than it paid for.
