Next time NBC, make sure your news people know to shut up and stop talking over mission control. Anyone watching a space launch is more interested in what MC has to say over your employees' synthetic monotones.

I like how Jeff Bezos is the world’s richest man and his rockets look like something Hezbollah would launch.

David Martin:
I almost never comment, but the feedback is necessary. When you live stream something, stop talking. You can't treat it like a news story. You missed the mark on letting viewers listen to the dialogue and information being shared by Blue Origin Mission Control. For tips, go back and watch a SpaceX launch. Launches aren't about listening to what a journalist learned during a research session. It is about watching history, listening to the crew and control dialogue, and taking it all in.

I'd be happy if Jeff Bezos would Start Paying Taxes, And, treated his employees with dignity and fair pay.

Get this vehicle to orbit and re-enter as Elon Musk's does then there is a reason to sell the family silver, both kidneys and myself to the highest bidder.

I'm sorry, but I'm still more impressed by our country putting a man on the moon and performing several flights around the Earth, along with placing a space station in orbit, than I am a couple of rich guys pitching their companies' expensive joyrides to a bunch of millionaires.

Tim Jones

Some interesting comments here. Always interesting how the very wealthy spend their money. From a technical standpoint, nothing new here. The booster landing on it's launch pad is impressive, but a function of large and fast computing power. Engineers and brave men from the twentieth century, some that didn't survive made this technology possible. I'm going to call this what it is, a rich man's publicity stunt. NBC'S coverage gives new meaning to that great old word: SUCKS!

"Between atmosphere and space" Sooo.. was it space or was it just very high up. This to me is just a very very expensive amusement park ride but don't get me wrong looks fun af!
It's just that we have bigger problems we should be focused on rather then going on fun rocket rides.

21:35 "indescribable feeling of gratitude, gratitud for the oportunity to see the planet from that vantage point and gratitude for the planet that we've been given, and I think in a way that I won't able to fully explain, being physicallty detached, I mean deeply interconnected and deeply interdependent with anyone on it. I think I saw the true unity of our planet, the true unity of our specie. And those things we fight over, all those things we think are so important kind of blurred into insignificance in the face of that indescribable beauty"

*You don't have to go to space for that, eat 5 grams of dry mushrooms and you'll FEEL the exact same thing and more, trust me

Waste of money just for a rocket ride. The technology of the rocket was great, the idea that Bezo built a company and made it to this point is incredible, but the fact these billionaires don't pay their fair share in taxes and treat their workers like crap is even more incredible they get away with it. If I don't pay my taxes so I can have extra money for my hobbies I would go to jail. The middle class pays the way for the rich. I don't mind helping the poor they need it, but all of us working while our roads and bridges and infrastructure is falling apart, our education system is lacking, our healthcare is too expensive, and they steal our Social Security and Medicare to make up the budget shortage because billionaires are not paying their share of taxes is disgusting.

Is it just me, or is there something unsettling about a psychopathic billionaire on a mission to figuratively, and literally, be on top of the world, in a spaceship named "New Shepard"?
The Questioner
The Questioner:
I almost always comment when I believe something needs to be said, and I completely agree with many of the comments here regarding the coverage of the launch... seriously it's like we need to go back to silent films or something. Just play some Hans Zimmer Interstellar or m83 music in the background and let us watch. However, there are lots of comments here about this being one step for mankind and a giant leap for all billionaires everywhere or something to that point. I'm a little on the fence, for one thing it's great that this was a successful launch and there were no F*&k-ups.

BUT, I'd be lying if I didn't see why people are seemingly upset as many are including myself (just a bit). The thing with NASA was that these are people that are the same as us with just more training, they go to fast food restaurants and for the most part don't run companies that we use every day and control the way we live our lives, along with that, due to the pandemic people are really getting a good look at their politicians and these companies and the people that run and own them.

However... let me ask you all this... if you had the chance, actually... if everyone had the chance not the opportunity but the CHANCE as in you can go up to space whenever you want... WOULD YOU WANT TO DO IT? Personally I can't even go on upside down rollercoasters, I threw up on Mission to Mars (Disney World or Land discontinued that ride I think someone died on it). I'm not talking about 500 years from now when space travel is basically as safe as flying in an airplane, I'm talking about tomorrow. Not every launch will be as successful as this one there are far too many variables to consider.

While the experience I'm sure is quite literally out of this world I don't think I'd be so eager, and as for most of us who can't afford to go right now, that doesn't mean you can't do other stuff, there are a million adventures out there, I personally don't think that there is anything more adventurous that I've done than sailing a full ocean on a 30 foot boat with two people (I've done it - and there were three occasions where my friend and I thought we were goners). This is not an expensive thing to do, if you want to travel get a van and go on the road. I do still see the separation between the classes believe me I really do. I have family that is on the wealthier side that goes on NetJets and I have to fly commercial, and then sometimes I get to go with them on the private jet, but then going from that PJ to a commercial plane... to say that it s*&ks balls isn't enough. While I have to stay in less luxurious accommodations, and be smarter with my money than they do I personally feel some frustration there too, but to be honest to say that every aspect of being wealthy is better is BS have you ever been to a michelin starred restaurant? It was $550 a person for a 7 course dinner, and I swear to God I have eaten better food at a Starbucks.

Lol why are my comments always so long... F*&k!

I remember in the 70’s when man first landed on the moon there was excitement and wonder, it was a big deal. The last time man landed on the moon none of my family cared. Instead of a house filled with excited spectators I was watching alone, no one cared. That day taught me a lot about how we are so easily bored and needing another challenge. NEXT.

This was what all the hype was over? It's a glorified carnival ride for millionaires. When comparing this to the Virgin Galactic launch, I could see more attention to design and for a long term (we've got a very long way to go) goal of making it practical use for travel. Bezo's little fantasy was more of a waste of everyone's time rather for his selfish desires, rather than actually caring for advancing the human race.
