Considerably higher than all civilian aircraft, and almost all military aircraft are capable of flying. Even Concorde had a flight ceiling of 60,000 feet (although it did manage 69,000 feet in test...

It does seem a bit like that, I know. But that's the problem with important physical constants which aren't dimensionless - it isn't just a number, so the accuracy to which you can determine it...

Although to be fair, none of them would have been likely to engage with us in a meaningful discourse about the constancy of the speed of light.

You need to be careful here. There is no problem with a metric expansion - an expansion of space itself - exceeding the speed of light, within the framework of mainstream physics. Indeed, that's what...
