NASA's drone aircraft

Spent a fascinating day at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Airforce Base. Saw the Global Hawk drone - an unmanned aircraft that's capable of flying half way around the world in a single flight at 60,000 ft. Cool science - gathering info about climate and weather. The Hawk's 2nd scientific flight is currently in progress - due to land in the morning and wil break record for longest flight of its kind (24 hours).
