First Blue Origin Paying Customer Can't Go
« on: July 16, 2021, 09:36:06 AM »

The guy who won the bid to fly the manned Blue Origins flight with Bezos now has "scheduling conflicts".

I'm guessing cold feet and wanting someone else to try it first.  :laugh:

That "someone else" will be an 18 year old kid. Lucky kid.

With the #BlueOrigin passenger list set, the suborbital tourism market arrives after nearly two decades of work... that involved pulling knowledge from the #X15 program of the 1960s. #VirginGalactic

That should be in the past tense.
Not only was VG first IMHO their way is much more sustainable for this type of flight than BO's

Jeff Bezos Thanks Amazon Workers And Customers For Paying For His Flight To Space

I suspect this sounded better to him before he actually said it . . . .
Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will... The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress. ― Frederick Douglass
