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? 🤔

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.

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.

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!😂

Weren't he asking for a government bailout last year saying he couldn't pay staff but has billions to fly to space 😂
To the edge of space. Like, we are going to Hawaii, but only within about 500 feet of it.
Aaaand that'll be 250k.

Commercial spaceflight is dead the second this jet fails to fire. The design of dropping a jet, then your life depends on it firing up, is badly flawed.
Right after she says “we are going to hear a word from our founder” then you hear someone in the background whispering “come one baby, there we go” at 2:08

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.
everyone saved 200k on the ticket. that looks like a complete waste of time
Something about this announcer really annoys me. It's like an infomercial that's trying to mimic real spaceflight.
These flat-earthers are standing on their last legs now

Mr Branson wouldn't be so bored on earth if he had any one he could trust. Too many people love money and have too much. You need to help more on earth because we, nor creatures from other planets are designed to live anywhere else.
people arent interested in videos of shutle insted they want truth about space and earth
