So sorry sorry Jeff. I've been known to suffer from from foot in mouth disease. The Victor Borge performance is beautiful. Obviously you and Richard Branson have class. I'm sure he requested that music for this momentous occasion. John

(music kinda sucks)



Oh, dear. You had me onboard till you dissed my song. Clair de Lune is the song I requested at my wedding, and at my mother's funeral. One of the most beautiful songs ever written, IMHO. Here's a nice performance by Victor Borge:



Congrats on the space flight. I agree that current activities in spacecraft development are going to mean wonderful things for my son's generation!

I missed this thread. I have been mesmerized by space travel since the Red stone program..I was very young but remember locked to that black and white TV. Then Gemini ,,then the apogee ,,the Saturn program..The Saturn V was a monster. Over 350 ft high. 7.8 million lbs of thrust...We took the moon several times...Then for 20 yrs we endured mundane shuttle programs that killed more astronauts than all of the other space programs...Now here we are within 20 yrs of intergalactic space travel,,thanks to Virgin Atlantic,Burt and Dick Rutan,,Elon Musk and Bezos...Now we are on the fast track to the stars. JR,,your son made the right choice. That accident was caused by the early deployment of the recovery system by the co-pilot. I was offered a job on the shuttle 30 yrs ago.Turned it down...Doesn't snow there. :P

A huge day for the Spaceship Company and Virgin Galactic April 5. Kathleen and I missed the flight by one day when we went to visit our new grandson. Maybe next time.
