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.

Sir Richard, I met you when I started investing. but now, studying your history and seeing what heights you reach, looking at your courage, I just give a standing ovation! Large! I hope I will tell my grandchildren that I saw a new era, an era of freedom and an era of accessibility of unprecedented heights, has arisen, thank you!

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!

A Nice Day to Drink Tea
A Nice Day to Drink Tea:
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.

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.

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 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.
