Has anyone else seen the item about an altitude record for a glider? The Airbus Perlan 2 has reached 76000 feet above the Andes. I get the news from a site New Atlas to which I subscribe for some news items. I don't know if it will work but the link is

https://newatlas.com/record-breaking-perlan-2-space/56183/?utm_medium=emqil&utm_campaign=2018-09-03%20083407%20Other%20Daily%20Bas

Sorry about the length of that but I was unable to post a link in any other way. There are several pictures of the glider plus a short video looking back over the tail while it was at height.
