Well that was quick. I can only imagine the 3-4 minutes of free float seemed like 3-4 seconds though

The drone footage at launch was an interesting angle.

The remarkable thing about this and Virgin’s flights are it’s the first time purpose built tourist vehicles and tourists have gone up to space. It’s a first step for bringing mass access to space. For now though these are going to be the thing to do for rich folk. Hopefully the next step, with something like SpaceX’s Starship for point-to-point travel, will bring the cost down to the price of a first class ticket.

You thought the flight was fast? You should have seen the in-flight beverage service steward booking it down the aisle.

They SAY they don't like the people to get out themselves b/c of the potential static charge build up. However, it's really so everyone has a chance to change their vomit soaked clothes.
