Richard Branson is to me the second greatest entrepreneur in the world. After Elon Musk of course. These two do whatever tf they want and Branson hasn't stop launching new businesses since launching his first business at just 15 years old.

Well done to the team And Branson, a relatively cheap way into space. The SCI FI guys love it. Good job :-)

Virgin must improve the design and efficiency, too much time we were waiting and still, they have not results accept. so sorry,I think they're like SpaceX on the stage with Falcon 1, you should to do a hybrid between an x-33 Venture Star and your Virgins spacecraft.

In the US, "space" begins at 80.4km (50 miles), or 264,000 feet. General international consensus sets a similar limit for the start of space as 100km (62 miles), or 380,000 feet. "Low Earth Orbit" (LEO) so they were in space

Why do they have to use a fish eye lens to curve the horizon?
Matinalii (3 months ago)
Why fish eye distort only Earth?... you ever seen an fish eye lens before? There s alot even from iss..but there iss is distorted too. Fish eye lens are used to take panoramic photos or videos.

Flat Earther's going to argue that this is not real; it is a hologram.

Noplay it is a hologram. Earth will always be flat

+Jason Burke It wasn't fish eye... looks nothing like that. And if you freeze frame it at any point, you can clearly see a curvature... it is never flat. Although at that altitude, it will only be a slight curvature.

Noplay , nope, can’t argue, footage like this is worthless cause of fisheye, it looked curved, then flat, then convex, of course to distort the FLAT TRUTH.
