"Near the top of the climb I had an altitude prediction of 363,000 feet," the space agency pilot told newsmen after the flight. "So I nosed her over a little. It looks like the predictor was off about 11,000 feet." Walker reached 351,000 feet. His goal was 360,000 feet, more than 68 miles. Walker set the previous record of 348,000 feet July 19.
