  1. The Earth is flat. I expect all flat Earthers to come from the 4 corners and buy tickets to fly and see for themselves that the Earth is definitely flat.

  2. Where does CBS get the reporters from he reported that it flew to 50,000 feet? Big deal the private jets fly that high LOL ?? gosh he didn’t accomplish as much as any SR 71 pilot did 40 years ago LOL Talk about a big zero I bet the Russians are ringing their hands over this?

  3. imagine burning billion tons of fuel for personal fun just right when people started concerning about fuel burning, no thanks we don't want any more personal fun by damaging our own atmosphere and we should discourage it, elon musk is different he thinks about future generations not his own bank balance like branson or bezos.

  4. I remember when they first broke the sound barrier. Now they broke into space. Soon our first Martian will be once again in residence. Breaking through their cultural dependence of divisions. Never thought I would live to ever see this day in our evolution… Imagine what that reward will be to our humanities' with…?

  5. The Future is for the rich Amazon/Facebook/Google/Apple/Samsung/Space X /Virgin Galactic that is their job to make sure that happens. Space Travel has nothing to do with all of us, it's rich boys and their toys making sure the chosen few will live in space. There is a digital divide that exists now, and the people with the wealth could care less about it. Most assume that everyone can have the technology that exists now and that is not the case. One day we will look around and the chosen few will jump on these shuttles and leave the rest to die. That is the future?

  6. These rich billionaires need to develop warp drive technology and gravity tech just like star trek. So we could go further into deep space.

  7. Sir Richard Branson looks so very happy and proud as he should. That was a magnificent job and it, once again shows that the private sector can do so much in a free society. Competition makes people so much better and they are driven to do so much more, talk about natural incentive reaching the stars and I think beyond in time. For sure this will turn into a big money maker for the creators.

  8. McNeil Consumer Healthcare just announced their Tylenol brand pain relief pill has been released as a special edition super-duper extra-strength pill especially formulated for flat earthers. There will only will only be a limited production until July 20 when after the Bezos flight, where you only have one option left for their pain.

  9. Why can the rich pollute as much as they like , private jets and now rockets , while we have to take public transport and pay to fight the CO2 pollution.

  10. Richard and Elon are both controlled by the NASA. Years ago a Dutch airforce-man wanted to invest into space gliders for tourists traveling by first shoot up and then glide down. He become a target of the NASA and never could continued his dream anymore, why we do not have this already for 10, 15 or 20 years??? because space is a big question-mark.

  11. Congratulations BRANSON LOVE YOUR TRIP LOVE GIVES US ALL HOPE FOR THE FUTURE SUPPORTING YOU GLAD YOU BEAT THE RACE MY NEW SPACE HERO YEAH! AN IM POOR ON WELFARE PUT ME IN THE LOTO TOO TAG ALONG PLEASE BEFORE I DIE LAURA HENDRY

  12. Why go to space? For like an another quarter million dollars more you could buy a Hunter Biden drawing of space from the White House.

  13. Now I remember why I don't watch CBS: it seems that even triumphant accomplishments have to be derailed as wealthy suburb guy's shiny lawn mower comparisons, a doom and gloom pandemic reminder and how evil it is for these billionaires to do this when there is so much 'inequality' in America. Just report the news, skip the BS commentary…
