    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"
