Would a beer can explode at high altitude? example 35,000 feet.

No it wouldn't, something to keep in mind though, is that it would be fine going up, but coming down it will cave in from the change in pressure... So you're gunna wanna finish it while you're up there.

No. the cans are designed to withstand pressure within. It may burst if frozen.

No. The higher you go, the thinner the air gets, but when you get to high Earth orbit in actual Space, the can would Implode from the intense vacuum.

It wouldn't explode it would be crushed from the pressure that's why that don't allow liquids on planes
