Virgin Galactic
« on: August 10, 2023, 08:52:11 PM »
So, years later than advertised, Virgin Galactic is finally open for business.
They had some test flight a few months back and they've just completed their first "space tourist" flight


Obviously this is still prohibitively expensive for "normal" people, but are there any FE thoughts about this or plans for a crowdfunding to get an FE. Here's the press conference:

Any thoughts on these people. Are they actors? Did they really go on the trip they claimed? None of them mention "the curve", interestingly. Is this a real business or is it being faked?
Tom: "Claiming incredulity is a pretty bad argument. Calling it "insane" or "ridiculous" is not a good argument at all."

TFES Wiki Occam's Razor page, by Tom: "What's the simplest explanation; that NASA has successfully designed and invented never before seen rocket technologies from scratch which can accelerate 100 tons of matter to an escape velocity of 7 miles per second"

"I went to space today!" - uttered by everyone currently alive, as it is necessary to occupy something.

"I went to space today (implying "OUTER", while uttering the phrase)," uttered by numerous liars over the years.

To be honest I am getting pretty bored of this place.
