God speed Captain Kirk when it does happen, a lot of Blue Origin’s engineers have quit due to safety concerns. The actual rocket looks like a flying combi boiler tank, you wouldn’t get me up in that. The regulations around space tourism sound like they do need tightening up, at the moment the regulations cover people on the ground and other aircraft in proximity. It doesn’t cover the people who are actually in the rocket.
Hahaha, wouldn't get me in it.

This always cracks me up..

Just a point it's a System boiler has a tank, Combi boiler has an expansion vessel looks more like Sputnik. :-)

I've paid my dues !
If they have to lighten the load upon re entry, he'll be the first one out the window.
Don't think he'd fit through these days mate.

Wonder if, in say, 100 years +, quiz shows will ask the question "who was the first fictional spaceship captain to actually go into space ?" ?
