🤗 Thank you!

  1. How long before people realize that blue origin is just a really expensive carnival ride you will be seeing at your local county fair soon?

  2. All of you critics must realize that commercial space flight, like commercial aviation, must start with baby steps. And I think it meant a lot to Alan Shepard’s daughter, on a previous launch, to recreate his suborbital flight!

  3. I have no idea if the New Shepard can be placed on top of a large booster so that the booster rocket would the first stage, the New Shepard the second stage, and thus be able reach orbit… but I don't think so. Blue Origin designed the New Glenn to do that, with a much larger payload.

  4. Yesterday I went to the beach and put my feet in the water, now I am officially an Oceanologist!
