In 1997, Royal Air Force pilot Andy Green piloted the Thrust SSC into the record books, becoming the first vehicle to break the sound barrier on land. Andy talks about what it takes to drive a car powered by two jet engines across the desert floor at over 763 MPH.

In 1958, the United States launched the first solar-powered satellite, Vanguard 1, into orbit. Over 2,200 days later, it's still in orbit — just one of millions of pieces of debris orbiting the Earth. As space around the planet becomes more crowded with the leftovers of human spaceflight, it poses a grave danger to the future of space exploration.
