I would wish them the best of luck, but this is about the best science and engineering in the world, no luck required! They've got this.
Edit: See, flawless. Well done Virgin Galactic!

Just this evening, I was looking at my "100 Bucket List" that I wrote in 2017. One of my list was visiting space with Virgin Galactic 😊 I am happy to see the dream is slowly becoming a reality 🚀 Congratulations Sir Richard & the Virigin Galactic team 👏🏾 Looking forward to watching the launch tomorrow and being one of your passangers in the nearest future 😊

2:40 I really cried near the end of this (with the feelings of sadness, fear of the nxt, empathy but most important excitement). 33 yrs of a dream coming true. Godspeed Sir Richard with today, you truly are with the greats.
Вперед к звездам,удачи Ричард!

I think it's great when some people actually manage to turn even their wildest dreams into reality - that used to be called pioneering spirit and discovery and that, too, takes mankind forward

Since I was a child growing up in Larchmont, NY watching Star Trek TOS at the age of 6 now 60 I never thought I'd see and experience this as a reality.

With all the doom and gloom in the World I lost my optimism. It has been restored.

Can't wait to see the launch. We are in the beginning of this new space era.All the best team Unity22
And no mention of Burt Rutan or the team at Scalled Composites who designed and built these aircraft. None of this would be possible without his vision and engineering excellence!
Yes, Branson brought more money to the project and then carries on as if its his idea!
Congratulations Burt, you're still the man!
Waiting patiently to witness history from Germany! So hyped. I love the time in which we are living. 😃🚀

This video should have been dedicated to Michael Alsbury, who died test-flying the "VSS Enterprise" on one of the test flights. I know he was at fault for the crash, which investigations concluded. But none the less, he had to give his life for this Adventure. And he and the other pilot, Peter Siebold, should be mentioned for their heroism towards this project.

If there was something I could do to earn a place on a Virgin Galactic flight I would do it times 10. The most frequent dreams I have that I can remember are ones where I am flying or I am blasting off to space, and once i can look down on earth i always wake up. I have , so so many times scrunched up my eyes and tried to go back to sleep , trying to go back into the dream at that same point , just as I'm about to see earth from space, but of course , it never happens. But the ride up to space in the rocket is always jaw dropping in dreamland. And I'm sure this is going to be amazing and breathtaking, watching Richard and crew make history, living every little boys , and I'm sure just as many little girls, dreams of being a real astronaut. I mean, what kid these days would say "going to space? No, that's not for me" ... kids these days will hopefully all have the chance to really go to space. After tomorrow every kid alive today WILL have that chance. I'm sure!
Can you tell I'm properly excited about this?🤔🤣🤣

I cannot wait for 11 July - one day, I hope I will have enough money to go to space with Virgin Galactic. That would be a dream come true.

Go Richard! Go and live our dream tomorrow!
Best of luck to Richard and the all VG team 🙏
Really excited to watch tomorrow, even if it is at 6 am!

I am an investor in his company. I gave always admired his fortitude and innovative thinking. That's said, it would be nice if he'd give the American space program decent mention. Without the American taxpayer funded programs that took our men to the moon, (and freely and openly shared it with the entire world) there might never have been that moment of inspiration. With all due respect, Sir Richard.

A Virgin Galátic precisa conhecer os dois matérias do Futuro que tem no Brasil Continental, o nióbio e o grafeno sendo este 200x mais resistente que o aço e mais flexível.
Já o nióbio brasileiro o ouro do futuro.
Vam pro Brasil Continental, um país que ama a inovação e o trabalho !!!
Parabéns a todos EUA.

How come Virgin, Branson or anyone else never mentions or gives any credit to Burt Rutan who was the designer/inventor of Spaceship One?? Without Burt none of this would be possible. One of the greats in all of Aviation History.
