Greenhouse Gases Pumped to Space

One rocket bound for orbit has a plane for high atmosphere flying strapped to its back. Before leaving the atmosphere, the plane detaches. However, the two vehicles are still connected by large tubes many, many miles in length that pump greenhouse gases from the plane to the spacecraft, where it is vented into space. The two vehicles fly in parallel paths: one within the high atmosphere, the other in space.
