Whoop de do

Steve Fosset manages to stay awake for 40 67 hours. In other news, Burt Rutan[Wiki] is still brilliant.

It was 67 hours, but who's counting once you get to that point?

Ah. Hadn't got that far, which means he almost certainly had a chane to sleep in flight (turn on the autopilot, let the ground crew monitor instruments), which makes his contribution even less interesting.

It's a little more difficult than just turning on the autopilot and letting the ground crew monitor instruments. Fossett admits to napping but I'm not sure if that type of napping would help me remain alert enough to fly after 36 hours.
