Having a rough morning here.

Are they at Mojave Space Port or the one in New Mexico?

I'm trying to track the Kni.....

Found it!

The thrill-seeking billionaire joined five company employees also assigned to the bid to reach the edge of space high above the New Mexico desert.

Lets be brutally honest.

The most pathetic live coverage ever, had to chase round different sites to get some sort of 'live' viewing.

That was much shorter than i expected. $250,000? A waste of money in my eyes.

Also, is it really really space? I'm not so sure.

Branson should go on stage WWE style and say 'suck it' Bezos.

That said SpaceX is way ahead of this race. They will be taking Space tourists to orbit and the ISS.

Blimey that was quick...back on terra firma already.
Cool watching the altitude speed up crazy fast when the rocket engine started.
And when it landed-what a strange little "ski" instead of a front wheel..

I guess they will put together a better edited film of the flight as the live coverage was not great.
Well done Branson though.

Trying to think of a practical use-I mean it is cool,but other than taking rich people to space for a few minutes-

Could this be used in the future for doing super quick mid/long range flights around the globe maybe?
Bigger fuel tanks,a few more seats..

It lets you see the curvature of the Earth and experience weightlessness so all in all it is space , or at least the edge of it.

I would imagine it would be a pretty humbling experience regardless of the technicalities of "is it or isn't it".
