They only went roughly 51 miles above the Earth's surface, tho it's cool, it's hardly space, just saying.

I am so happy for this beautiful achievement by Virgin! Congratulations to Richard and the whole team!
A dream come true! See that it's not just anyone who puts their skin in the game to demonstrate how safe and wonderful this new world is that they are inaugurating right now. Very happy to see Richard remembering God all the time. Oh my God! ...remembering how wonderful the creator is to offer us so much and so beautiful things!

3:42 They can figure out how to build that ship and get it into space and back but they can't make a simple radio transmission...even after doing so for multiple decades.

Congratulations on fulfilling the dream, however I was dissapointed in the coverage...too much like Nasa when you get a hour of waffle on the ground and looking up when I want to see the entire experiance from inside looking down, out of an hour or so footage theres may a few minutes worth of stunning shots, i'd have gone full go pro taking the audiance with me all inerior looking out! Someones going to do it one day and it will be stunning.

So how hard would it be to make a kerolox or methalox rocket engine with the same form factor as that hybrid they are running now?

The X-15 was operated under several different scenarios, including attachment to a launch aircraft, drop, main engine start and acceleration, ballistic flight into thin​ upper atmosphere.
First flight: 8 June 1959. Birth of the television show, The Six Million Dollar Man.

How did the Apollo 11 crew have a more consistent audio and video feed from the surface of the moon in 1969 than a flight only 50 miles high in 2021?

27500 feet that's within troposphere, Virgin ought to team up with one of NASA's space mission to explore orbit further at a higher altitude.

There are still many video and communications anomalies cropping up. Cameras seem to not like rocket travel too much.

Very thoughtful of them to use the same camera to record it as the one used on the moon landing 50 years ago

If you watch the altitude dropping at about 1000 fps youll understand why they could float around up there.
This video is rediculous and it tells on itself

Dear Virgin Galactic, ditch Virgin Mobile for your communication next time. Go with Verizon instead so we can actually experience this with you. BTW, way to go Richard! This is truly amazing! Historic, and the beginning of a new era!
