Engle enters the history books as the youngest ever to qualify as an astronaut. He earned that distinction by flying the third of three X-15’s built, to an altitude of 280,600 feet, more than fifty miles above the earth’s surface in what officially qualifies as outer space. The X-15 became the most successful research aircraft ever flown, proving the concept of manned, rocket-boosted exo-atmospheric flight, thus paving the way for precision re-entry from space to a pre-determined landing site, a concept used routinely for nearly 100 Space Shuttle missions flown since 1981.
