    @Entrepreneurr Oh, look, 5 minutes and I have found a flat earther who has actually done some research and guess what, he proven that the earth starts to curve over 20 Km with his high altitude balloon. You can see at the beginning of the video that the camera doesn't distort the picture, so you are just a parrot and a liar. I hope you know that if your god is true and not another, you will still be punished for lying and being dishonest! GuD BlEsS YoU! :P

  69. Entrepreneurr

    Entrepreneurr7 päivää sitten

    @Muckytuja Clearly I'm talking about flying in an aircraft at 80k ft. Regardless of where it is being filmed, they are clearly using lens that distorts images if any horizon is not flat. Also a horizon is flat, a plane means flat, level means flat. Also, if you fly in an aircraft with glass that doesn't alter vision, such as in a cockpit, you would recognize that the horizon is always flat and you never look over a curve. You can debate me as much as you want, but you are wrong. If you aren't wrong, show a video of a curve at any altitude through a proper lens, but you can't because there isn't a curve lol. But anyway, God bless you.

  70. Muckytuja

    Muckytuja7 päivää sitten

    @Entrepreneurr Uhm, dude !?! I was clearly talking about the horizon becoming concave as the picture shifts up and down a little. And it's been filmed from outside of the plane, not through the windows. I am pretty sure you were flown in a covert military plane, and I was the one who piloted it. Fact. And about reality denying, that's on your part. I feel sorry for you dude, get help!

    Lame, so lame. I mean come on, really? 86 km altitude with Starlink satellites are at 230 km and the ISS orbits at 407 km altitude. - really??? These billionaires couldn't do at least one orbit around the earth??? Bezos made it above 100 km for just 1 minute and 13 seconds?? Lame, totally lame! These guys think something great in history just happened? They only made it to suborbital space- not outer space. Branson and Bezos were too cheap to build something to achieve orbital velocity. Suborbital space tourism is a real lame waste of time, money and not worth the risk of human life. These two billionaires could have saved alot of money and just pay $55m a seat aboard a real space ship on SpaceX "Dragon" but their pride would not allow that. If you really want the real thing, fly with SpaceX and book seven nights at the ISS and view 16 sunrises/sunsets a day. Then you got something colossal to write home about.

    Both Branson and Bezos have built toys with a lot of flash and ego sizzles but little practical use and, at the very best, a murky path to future development. Do not anticipate future development from either Branson's high tech kite or Bezos' updated Mercury capsule. If you can't go orbital, you can't do squat.

    Mike Allen12 päivää sitten

    Richard Branson and Virgin Galactic have the most potential to reach space. The reason is because you can fly a spaceplane anywhere there is a runway. Launch pads are very scarce and take a long time to build. So all Virgin Galactic has to do is buy a larger fleet of spaceplanes as well as hubs. Other business owners will see the promise with spaceplane travel will bring the prices down further. Another thing, a rewards programs will likely also be used. Also with no heated reentry due to the feathered configuration where the back wings flip up which reduces drag and thus no heated reentry. Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are both using launching pads which again has a limited reach to to make space more accessible because launch pads are scarce and take more time to build. So the media and public have it backwards that Elon Musk is leading the way in space tourism while Richard Branson is doing nothing more than a billionaire joy ride. Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are doing the billionaire joy ride. Lunar colonization was a also unlikely because the spacecrafts would go through heated reentry and a lander would be needed to land on the Moon. The Apollo missions couldn't even carry 3 astronauts to land on the Moon because the lander could only fit 2 astronauts. One astronaut had to fly around the Moon so they could connect with the astronauts on the Moon. So space tourism will most likely end up like the airline industry with space planes taking off at airports. The prices are high for Virgin Galactic because of Research and Development overhead. Once this is paid off then the ball for the average person gets rolling.

  115. was wasn't

    was wasn't11 päivää sitten

    High altitude is not the reason for heat on re-entry, it is speed. That's why SpaceX does an entry burn. If the space shuttle of the 80's carried enough fuel reserve for a controlled entry burn, they wouldn't need heat resistant tiles to make a comfortable return to earth. Elon at SpaceX has demonstrated this several times. Maybe, if "Reaction Engines" loaned Musk a pair of "SABRE" engines and together they, with NASA, developed a new era of high altitude spaceships, well, that would be really something.
