No outer-spaceAnswer: they don't go into outer-space as there is a ceiling at around 73 miles height aka 117 km. They have to correct their height as they probably get to close to it, but the signs like a signal disturbance and the friction coloration's have not occurred yet. This 6 km difference in height doesn't make sense unless they cannot go into outer-space and so have to fake the whole thing. The signal disturbance is the point after which they edit what you see.
