I suppose there will be a newly-invented scientific way to transform substance from A to B, then it can be transmitted by electromagnetic waves. Nobody knows what it will happen in the future.

I get a pressure of about 0.006 atmospheres at 36,000 meters. 

So, flying near the surface on Mars is about the same as flying at an altitude of 36,000 meters on Earth.

says that altitude record for an airplane was 85,135 feet = 26,000 meters.
