Beale Air Force Base, California, is home to the U-2, an aircraft that was originally designed to fly high-altitude intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions during the Cold War. Today, the U-2 flies in support of a variety of missions from ground combat to disaster relief. During high-altitude missions, U-2 pilots often see a natural occurrence called the "terminator line," which separates day and night. This "ah ha" moment is an awesome reminder of mankind's diminutive size when skimming the edge of space. (U.S. Air Force Video by Andrew Arthur Breese)
