Just suborbital on Blue Origin.
Beam me up, Bezos??
He still won’t get the FAA Commercial Astronaut wings because Bezos’ rocket penis comes up short of the FAA requirements.

To boldly go where an ever expanding number of men, women, dogs, chimps and hamsters have gone before.
@macromeh At least he’ll set a record for being the oldest.
Given the shape of that vehicle, I am sorely tempted to propose an extremely impolite term for the passengers in it.
@werehatrack Well if Bezos also is doing submarines, they could be Seamen.
Does it rhyme with “Rick-riders”?
It doesn’t, but that’s a good candidate.
Honestly is it weird to say I’m more interested in the Nasa “Armageddon” flight into an asteroid, than I am in this tourist sub-orbital?
But yeah just for old Star Trek nostalgia, literally “old” in this case, I guess it’s kind-of cool.
@pmarin No, not at all. And I’m an old Trek fan.
@daveinwarsh will he even be in space long enough to recreate that rendition? Because if so, he totally should.
@daveinwarsh I actually remember watching this on TV ‘live’.
@daveinwarsh @f00l Don’t stop there!
@daveinwarsh @djslack They only get three minutes of weightlessness, the whole trip is 11 minutes.
Was Bernie Taupin dying the whole time, or did the royalties make up for that performance? I can’t believe the audience wasn’t snickering.
@blaineg @daveinwarsh @djslack
Snickering, or looking vaguely nauseous and eyeing the least congested route out?
