Sadly the cunt made it back to earth in one piece.

No fucks given either way tbh.

Sorry to hear that.

85km. Not really space. Far below all the ‘low earth orbit’ satellites and in a region where atmospheric drag would still be a real issue.

I bow to your superior knowledge and have changed the thread title accordingly. :+1:

Whoever scheduled it for the same day as Wimbledon and the euros final deserves a medal. It’ll barely get a passing mention.

You know what would really impress me is if one of these multi-Billionaires paid a fair rate of tax.

A massive fireball, a literal bonfire of the vanities, would have been fucking epic tbh. I don’t wish death in any person, but sometimes I do on what they represent.

Or spend last year bleating for hand outs from the tax payer…

I saw those videos of Branson on the news and thought, “you’re flying really high up in a plane, mate.”

multi-multi- billionaires:

“I’ve got more money than many 3rd world countries and literally the only thing i can think to spend it on is a massive fucking penis extension because super cars, multi-hundred-million dollar yachts and other possessions aren’t enough for me.”

also

“no i cant afford to pay my staff properly or let them have toilet breaks” *

*caveat that firms with beardy branson’s name on are apparently actually quite good employers, but ‘meh’, no-one ever got that rich playing fair.

I have no doubt he’ll make a tidy return charging millionaires for a joy ride to the edge of space. I also suspect that this is a starting point to a low earth orbit launching system for micro satellites etc.

Not with that tech, there isn’t nearly enough oomph in the rocket engine.

Not in that launch vehicle I agree, but another launch vehicle is a possibility. Cant see there being enough money in low orbit joy rides to justify this. If it is nothing more than an ego trip them its just a complete waste of resource.

Up, but not far enough?

and back to earth

So, what would happen if, instead of a wanky ‘space plane’ Beardy, liquidated his assets, had them turned into a pile of $1 bills and stood on that instead?
