    Bransons system just feels a bit safer in that you can glide down.

    The rockets landings still scare me.

    ye that was quite the hard landing yikes. didn't really have time catch up to much after the 11 minute flight ended, but read some rumors on a chat that one of the flight crew (bezos?) hurt their back on that landing. is that true? or just fake news. i'm thinking the latter (hopefully). nevertheless, yowza on that impact. didn't look very smooth at all. whereas branson's was about as smooth as you could get.

    yeah, i'll take branson's spaceflight over bezos please.

    Without watching or reading anything about either of these, I'll ride the LESS safe one in hopes that going with that person gets me in their will and my young healthy body can survive a rough landing better than theirs.

    agree. but take a look at this video, go to the 6 minute mark. that, my friend, is a rough landing. maybe they should try a water landing

    I thought so too, but at 6:02 he explains that there is a "puff" at 6ft of a cushion of air that reduces the speed even more and makes if feel like you are "sitting down"

    I know people who collect experiences so they can tell their glamorous stories over and over and put pictures on the wall of themselves in famous places with famous people doing fabulous things. I'm not that kind of guy. I'd rather give the money away than buy a ticket from either of those carneys. Take a nap Emmett. :)

    Seems Bezos is having a midlife crisis in front of our very eyes.
    The new girlfriend and the texts (I'll save you the vomit and not post them here)...getting overtaken by Elon, who actually was able to save his hair...the lawsuits against NASA who chose Elon.
    Makes me wonder if Amazon didn't really fire him as CEO.

    you've triggered a potential new poll idea, something along the lines of which carny do you love the most: bezos, branson or musk.

    Shatner is going up on Bezos' Blue Origin.



    Call me when they get Patrick Stewart.
