Some are arguing that Virgin Galactic’s Richard Branson really didn’t go ALL the way into space….saying that fifty miles up really isn’t…space.

Not to mention, there seems to be a little backlash with many saying that the space race is a hype driven stunt with no real meaning.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m ALL for technological growth. But $200,000 for a ride in a high altitude plane seems like a waste of money, especially after the year we just came out of. Maybe I need to study it more before I judge it,

Maybe Jeff Bezos of Amazon should use the millions for the rocket to find our missing package on Earth.
