"New Shepard is designed to fly above our line of business." Virgin Galactic is making final preparations for the historic flight of its VSS Unity vehicle Sunday morning with the company's founder, Richard Branson, and three others. To that end, the company announced Friday that in order to promote spaceflight, it will be doing a live broadcast hosted by Stephen Colbert and performing a new song, Timeless. p>
But wait, is it really a space? Amazon co-founder Jeff Bezos says Virgin Galactic flights are no more than 80 kilometers. In a pair of salty tweets on Friday, Bezos Blue Origin captured photos of Virgin Galactic and its rocket-powered space. level. "From the beginning, the New Shepherd was designed to fly over our field, so there is no star next to the names of any of the astronauts," the company wrote on Twitter. "For 96% of the world's population, the area starts from 100 km of the Kerman line internationally."

96% indicate that the rest of the world, excluding the United States, recognizes 100 kilometers as the boundary of space. Both the US Air Force - which has awarded X-15 pilots who have flown more than 80 kilometers with astronaut wings - and the US Federal Aviation Administration said it spans 80 kilometres.
- Meanwhile, the World Air Sports Federation, or FAI, uses 100 km to mark the area for world record-breaking purposes. However, the organization says it is seeking to "reduce this limit from 100 km to 80 km," due to "recently published analyzes [which] present a compelling scientific case for reducing this altitude." “This reassessment is based in part on a scholarship from Jonathan McDowell, a scientist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

These two tweets from Blue Origin on Friday, which should be from Bezos' office, as a small stroke, will rise The Blue Origin launch system sure, but Virgin Galaxy has already brought humans into space three times already, and some customers will appreciate the spacecraft experience more than launching a rocket.
It's a joy for the rocket company that hasn't launched anyone yet and hasn't put Even one gram of cargo is in orbit, and more than 20 years later, Branson's other space company, Virgin Orbit, has done twice before successfully orbiting and will have to start over soon, but what kind of picture does Bezos have here? Worth $500 million, his main space racing rival Ilan Musk lives in a $50,000 home in South Texas to be with his engineering and technical teams.They work on their Starship project.Reading game - Sir Richard Branson will attempt to go into space on July 11 < p> likely to be easy Branson met Bezos, who flew forward with his VSS Unity vehicle after Bezos announced his spaceflight. Just annoyed. July 20 on its new suborbital system Shepard. So Bezos prepared his communications team for the drawing and tweeted it less than two days before Branson's trip. In the end, the tweets tell us more about Bezos than they tell us about his missile - which is great - or Virgin Galactic.
In any case, you should watch the Virgin Galactic Stream, which starts at 7 a.m. local time or 13:00 local time on a Sunday morning. Arras will be ready to witness this spectacle.My favorite video.
