One confirmed dead


One in a bad way after ejecting


Around 80Million Dollars taken for these
future flights



The Live video is feed back to base

Anomaly - they are calling it

I call it a ERROR
I bet they are rushing things


also many from NASA are working on it.
and as early as next year flights into near space were due.


I do not think I would fly in it now



Famous Names Who Have Signed Up To Fly:

Lady Gaga
Ashton Kucther
Justin Bieber
Stephen Hawking
Katy Perry
Russell Brand
Leonardo DiCaprio
Kate Winslet

They were in a Rush
As flights would start
in just a few months.

They had the money
and NASA Engineers backing them,
but they changed the rocket system
to much.

Its sad, but this is exactly the reason they have plenty of tests before the service goes live.

This is a tragedy and real setback for the idea of space tourism. I thought before that this project was a bit too risky for the general public. It is basically an experimental rocket plane.

It's not really a spaceship, it's just a plane that flies really high for short periods of time. That vehicle was never capable of reaching space.

i hope this doesn't cause any backlash against private space exploration though. the more people trying to get to space the better imho. more science, more technology, more exploration, that's what we want and need.

I know exactly what you're saying.....my husband will confirm i'm terrible getting on a plane, and i much prefer my feet on the ground

But with the help of wine/Baileys i'm sure my fear would go away
