The Kármán line is the boundary between Earth and outer space. It was developed by Hungarian physicist Theodore von Kármán, who determined that the boundary is roughly 60 miles up. That’s a long way up, but not nearly as high as Heaven. So where is Heaven? Above the Kármán line, to be sure. It’s the highest heaven (Deuteronomy 10:14). The apostle Paul referred to it as the third heaven (2 Corinthians 12:2). Using that description, our immediate atmosphere is the first heaven, and outer space is the second heaven. Jesus’s description is the best of all: paradise (Luke 23:43).
