Loons of the world rejoice, Elon Musk is not only a god, but he's your god. (He's told us as much).

He's managed to bring space travel all the way back to pre-Gemini status. But then again, the later Gemini missions were actually orbital. (!962 to 1966) https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/gemini/index.html with their 50 th anniversary rapidly approaching. :rolleyes:

So, "forward into the past, o' ye Musk disciples, remember your god will be with you.

Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos was probably muttering to himself. "Oh Mackenzie, had you not grown old, all this could have been yours".

"Blue Origin", from the world where a giant dildo is still considered original.

Look at that . 18 and 82 on the same flight. 100. His scheduling conflict was he wasn't 18. Something money making will be made out of the 100.
That's exactly what this thread needed, an injection of some sort of numerology bullsh!t.

Perhaps he took the day off to update his will. Hint: All the family members who said he shouldn't go, were cut out of it. (Hey, could happen).

NASA disagrees with you.

"The term "astronaut" derives from the Greek words meaning "space sailor," and refers to all who have been launched as crew members aboard NASA spacecraft bound for orbit and beyond." - nasa.gov/astronauts
ok and is this considered an official NASA spacecraft?

When you consider that Russian "space sailors" aren't called "astronauts", but rather, "cosmonauts", you would think that since the terms are both state defined and sanctioned, then Sir "whatshisname", can't officially be called an "astronaut"

With the appearance of Mr. Bezos "rocket", I think it would be more appropriate to call him a "dildonaut".

(Yeah, that's probably coming down. But it's still funny, yes)?
