Awesome. Very happy we are finally getting airborne again and there is a dream for the future.. I am so glad they give us hope to travel in space one day at affordable prices.

Hi There:
He’s funny. He’s basically saying, he is building the road so that one day anybody can afford to do joy rides in space, and other stuff, of course. I just think this was a dream of his.
*_“What we need to do is always lean into the future; when the world changes around you and when it changes against you – what used to be a tail wind is now a head wind – you have to lean into that and figure out what to do because complaining isn’t a strategy.” – Jeff Bezos_*
I hope the landing of the capsule's gonna be litterally "ground breaking"!!!
They look genuinely excited. I would be too.

I hope jeff bezos would sleep peacefully on earth 🌎 today and hopefully he would streaming live from space and give people updates on it and hopefully find a suitable location to built first amazon warehouse in space by 2025
Is this why everyone’s Amazon prime membership has gone up by a few dollars lol.

I didn't think anything could make me not love space, but watching billionaire, billionaire's brother, and some billionaire's spoiled son go into space shows me that rich people can pretty much defile anything.

Regardless of money and everything. This is very wholesome. Seeing their compassion that developed through their training together- They will definitely be bonded for life from this experience.
Do us a favor, stay in space.

I remember when I was a kid watching the Challenger shuttle explode.. live on tv. It was very sad. But I’d have to say if it were to happen again with just Dr Evil on board.. I wouldn’t shed a tear. What a despicable POS.
Well better luck next time I guess!

Bezos take care of the people in trouble. Homeless, workers in Amazon, and give back to your country what give to you. Just a little bit or your enormous fortune can make a big different in the life of many people. Built houses, give food and medical assistance. It will make you feel soooo good. Better than fly to space. Do it watching the eyes of the people.

as much as it is amazing acheivement, I refused to call passengers of this flight astronauts. No matter what anybody says. to me astronauts and cosmonauts for that matter are people like Jurij Gagarin, Vladimir Komarov, Alexej Leonov, Alan Shepard, John Glenn, Neil Armstrong ...

Arthur Au:
Going to space is easy, the real challenge will be send people back to the moon and establish a moon base and sending humans to Mars for the first time in history.

Jeff Bezos , he proved that not only astronauts flew to space but also with our talent so great of you sir.He describes that there is no end of our hardwork.Now or after we can reach it.

They never went into space... didn't break the earths atmosphere which is the entire difficulty part in getting to space.. surviving the friction of the atmosphere. this was literally a very high earth flight..

The oldest and youngest person ever in space on *one* flight! This is such great progress for space travel

I know how y’all can easily get to mars just build a bigger or longer space ship with like more than one space ship linked together or something and be like it will go farther that way and build one on mars so you can fly back but build it with robots or build a bridge using space robots so you can drive to mars or something
I think you guys better cancel this trip today. I also think every passenger should use their real name to board this rocket if you guys insist to go ahead. First test flight should be done by one professional astronaut.

Congrats to everyone who is making it great in life. Unfortunately, a lot of people aren't making it and see themselves on the other side in which they commit suicide and/or other "evil" acts. It's just going to get worse and worse when more people who are competing against each other realize how difficult the world is to make it because they didn't invest properly way back, joined in late, and got financially devastated from everyone who sold on them and their life savings. If people could only live homeless or homeless-like w/o complaining, everything else will work no matter how screwed people are in life w/ themselves and their family.

Elon COULD put them ALL to shame by going several ORBITS around the earth in a dragon capsule. Don’t know what the cost to refurbish a capsule, but he could take 4 PAYING customers with him at $5 Million OR MORE each!! That’s MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK than what the other 2 joy rides give.

A $250k amusement park ride . . . . cant help but wonder if this is the best use of our limited resources. Given that NASA, Alan Shepard and Gus Grissom pretty well perfected this sub-orbital thing about 60 years ago - do you REALLY think we're breaking new ground? Wake me when you've been to the moon and back several times - - - - until then, whatever you're doing is a simple re-jiggering of established technology(ies) with a few new twists thrown in to save a few bucks per launch and to pretty things up so our well heeled pax are a little less likely to think about reaching for the barf bag on the way down.

Poor design of vertical take off and landing; too abrupt. Virgin's plane-like 'horizontal' approach much better. it looks like booster rockets to end did not deploy; still going at 16 mpg-which much have been quite a strong hit for the passengers in the cabin.
