  1. We need to get more of these billionaires off the planet, preferably to mars & good luck to them trying to repoduce oxygen.

  2. Is either of Bezos's parents still alive? They wouldn't appreciate TWO of their children going up in that thing.

  3. Whoever is paying $28 Million to get a whiff of the vacuum of space and experience a few minutes of weightlessness is a chump. If you're gonna fork over $28 Million!, you deserve to experience at least one orbit around the Earth. C'mon!

  4. I think the 2020 pandemic has taught a lot of people the importance of multiple streams of income,unfortunately having a job doesn't mean security…no rich man or woman made it through salary,investing now will be wise

  5. SPCE SPCE SPCE SPCE SPCE 28 million ticket winning bid…surreal for the space sector.. SPCE to the moon monday not to mention more super news with richard branson and his NEW 3 billion virgin orbit merger

  6. I'm so DISGUSTED! This is most gross display of EXCESS in the faces of the millions struggling to survive below the poverty level. Our country is still feeling from from a deadly pandemic. Average citizens watch the ultra-rich benefit using every conceivable loophole (legal or illegal-mostly through laws they secretly broker through backroom deals/threats etc.) to perpetuate the immense gap between them and the poor. In my state home insurance has increased 33 percent in 2021. The rich are buying up homes/entire subdivisions at 200-300 percent above asking… they're running average Americans out of their homes!! Now there laughing and bragging in my face about $25 million POCKET CHANGE!!!!!

  7. For 28 million, the US could lift thousands out of poverty. The Dems has got to tax the wealthy obscenely. They deserve it.

  8. Meanwhile schools across the planet are chronically underfunded. Services for parents nonexistent. Healthcare is a luxury for many. Mental healthcare a pipedream. Love this dystopia.

  9. IMO paying $28m+ for a 3minutes experience in zero gravity is stupid. You can can start a personal space company with that kind of money… And

  10. Several years back, well before this obviously not fake pandemic, weren't people paying several hundred thousand dollars to Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic for a trip to space? What ever happened to that?
