Dunno. Wasn't fully paying attention until a CBS anchorwoman, I think, tried to correct the guy being interviewed that that was kind of a nono to day. Now Twitter is talking about the comment. I'm sure YouTube will have it soon.

So, Jeff beat out Branson heightwise.

Well... from here it's just a matter of a few more boosters. Glue a heat shield to the capsule and they're possibly into orbit proper.

Which puts them ahead of Branson but behind Musk.

Sir Richard's got a whole lot of design work ahead if he wants to get to orbit and back. Still, the ground work's been done back in the 50's and 60's for 'Space plane' type vehicles. Maybe he'll dust off those ideas?

Congrats and big cheers to Wally Funk. Big Grin

Not at work.

The dick-waving competition between Branson, Bezos, and Musk would be funny if it weren't pouring so much carbon into the atmosphere.

The whole thing disgusts me... when the rest of the planet's plebeians are
struggling to even stay alive for another day.

"But as the Earth's wealthiest person—a centibillionaire of extreme proportions,
worth more than $200 billion—the man has been under an intense microscope
for his attitudes toward America's gaping wealth divide."

If I had a head like a robber's dog, I'd be hiding it in space too LOL.

Bezos' rocket runs on liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen.  No carbon there.  Now, as for the Amazon delivery fleet, that's another animal entirely.

I will say that taking Wally Funk into space (sixty years overdue) is probably the best thing Jeff Bezos has ever done. Other than that, fuck him.

Elon Musk is at least delivering cargo and crews to the ISS. Bezos and Branson are just dicking around with Roman candles and paper planes.

And Musk had a head start.

So you want a full-blown space-tourism industry?  I don't.  I think it's an embarrassment, especially considering how it's being hyped.  It's just rich people lying to themselves again.  They don't need a space trip to feel sometime or other.  They need to think about what they're doing.

“I want to thank every Amazon employee and customer because you guys paid for this"

This quote is going to be iconic.  Widening wealth gap has been creeping and accelerating for some time now, but I wonder if looking back on this 100 years from now these rich guy space trips will be seen as landmark kind of "aha" moments, real zeitgeist-shifters.  Nah, probably not.
