Watch Virgin Galactic send founder Richard Branson to edge of space

Amazing ... like what, 60 or so years after the first sub-orbital flights, we've done it again. Does the thing carry enough fuel to reach LEO or is it just a toy?

Branson went up about 50 miles.
Satellites are reported to orbit thousands of miles up. Though an impressive flight, is 50 miles away really space travel? 🤔

But, no the outer space, by a distance of 20 km less than the IAF frontier of space, or current Karman line, located about 100 km of height.

Instead, it's the greatest exospheric o stratospheric goal inside upper atmospheric flights.
Thats boss moves right there. Where can i get a ticket?

Sir Richard Branson, or as he likes to state it, "Branson, Sir Richard Branson, Astronaut 001" just reached the edge of space and blew an intersectionally inclusive hole in the ozone!😂

Branson did NOT go to space.
Space is 62 miles up. Branson went only 50 miles up; twelve (12) miles short of the edge of space.
So, half a century ago, between 1969-1972 men went to the moon 6 times and now I'm supposed to be amazed by a billionaire who built a plane that doesn't even take him to space ? Really ?
How is it an accomplishment ? Taking tourists for a zero gravity flight ? Zero G planes exist for decades, you can book a trip for 9000 bucks today if you want.

So the expensive airplane went up and then it came down. Unlike the Space X astronauts, the occupants of this flight did nothing but hang on for the ride. Very poor TV coverage. And narrator's last job MUST have been as a tour guide at Universal Studios or some such place. Totally underwhelming.
