Problem is the current Virgin Galactic spaceship doesn't come anywhere close to escape velocity or achieving orbit. It will come back down no matter what.

Well, let's hope it comes down the way the Challenger came down after it's final launch.

/yeah, I went there

Hold your fire. There's no Bieber. It must have short-circuited.

Will they torture him by forcing him to watch the worst movies of all time?

Virgin I am SURE no one will blame you if something were to go wrong and a terrible accident were to occur on this flight.

I won't be wondering how he'll eat or breath or all those science facts.  Just repeat to myself he's off the Earth, I should really just relax...

So it's a "spaceship". Sub-orbital tin can just doesn't have the same ring to it, I guess. The fact that you can get close to the same altitude in a MiG-25 for far less is irrelevant I suppose. What's important is the word "space".

This is what I've always dreaded. Rich snots like Bieber flying into space while the rest of us toil like ants below in our part-time Walmart greeter jobs, while he gets to come back down, get his official astronaut wings, and brag to everyone that he's now in the same league as Yuri Gagarin and Niel Armstrong.

On face value, this sounds like a good thing, but when you thing of the vacuum he has between his ears, space may be his natural environment.

TV's Vinnie: Rich snots like Bieber flying into space


Relax, it's an amusement park ride. They come back sooner or later. If that's the trigger it takes to make you notice that some people are richer than others, fine. It wasn't the clothes, the cars, the houses, the women or the lifestyle, no, it's the "spaceship" that gets you all bent out of shape?

Get your revenge and go fly in a MiG-29 for 40000$. You'll get far more out of it.

Bieber in space? Even nicest-guy-off-the-planet Chris Hadfield would end up punching the Bieb in the cock vag - gender-non-specific organs.

The big difference between a rich snot like Bieber and Armstrong is that Bieber is taking a luxury trip into a very high altitude, not actually leaving the atmosphere, and returning, safely, to Earth.  Armstrong went to the bloody moon, risked his life in the process (put his ass on a few tons of rocket fuel and lit it and if things went wrong in space, it was going to be a slow drawn out death).  Really, this is nothing much to be that upset over.  It's no different than you comparing the first European sailors who were discovering the Americas and Australia with people today who sail around the globe in luxury yachts.

Kickstarter? A reasonably sized trebuchet should suffice, given that he can fit in a gnome's vest pocket.

Quantum Apostrophe: TV's Vinnie: Rich snots like Bieber flying into space

Relax, it's an amusement park ride.


An amusement park ride where you DO get officially listed as an astronaut. Official altitude is 80 kilometers and Virgin Galactic will fly at 110K.

And you KNOW that Beiber will brag his scrawny little ass off about it and rub it in everyone's faces. Bet on it.
 
2013-06-06 11:34:56 AM
Is it a one way trip? Or wil he be on the ship with the phone sanitizers.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that after being told for decades that soon, ordinary people will get to fly into space just like the astronauts of NASA do, and that it's all part of the shining future that the teachers in the 60's and 70's promised to us impressionable gullible kids.

And then, as you're approaching your 50's, and you finally see the first private launches begin to take shape, only to find that some little sh*t who won the You Tube lottery is going to cut in line and sneer at all of the Joe SixPacks below. That's really demoralizing. It's like seeing the Koch Brothers winning the Powerball jackpot.

Actually, I did come this close to getting a ticket myself to fly. I had been one of the few final runner-ups in a contest 7Up ran a few years ago, but missed out on the final Grand Prize raffle. At least I got $500 bucks out of it.

Can we put him first in a Red jumpsuit
(Say, marked with Gizmonic Institute)
Our experiment needs a new test case.
So let's lock him in a rocket an shoot him into space!
 
2013-06-06 11:42:57 AM
do we have to let him land, or can we just say we forgot how to bring the space craft back.

I don't get the Bieber  hate.  When Elvis was a kid, everyone on the internet ripped into him as well, and look how well he turned out.

In the not-too-distant future,
Next Sunday AD,
There was a douch named Beibs,
Who was a dick to everybody,
The record managers were getting pissed,
Beibs told them that they'd been dissed,
They decided to send Beibs to a distant place,
So they conked him on the noggin, and they shot him into space, *you...ass...hooooles*,
They'll send him cheesy movies,
The worst they can find, la la la,
He'll have to watch them all and they'll monitor his mind, la la la,
Now keep in mind Beibs can't control when the movies begin or end, la la,
Because he used those special parts, to make some robot friends,
Cambot, gypsy, servo, croooow,
You won't be wondering how he'll eat or breath, or all those science facts, just repeat to myself he's off the Earth, I should really just relax...,
Oh Mystery Science Beiber 3000 *twang*.

Just wanna say this gives me the tiniest little bit of respect for the Bieb.

110 kilometers straight up?Then straight down?

There is no way I would EVER sign up for such a thing.

You're far braver than I.Good luck young man.

... which he will then loan to Lil Twist, who will wrap it around a phone pole.

Probably wind up paying Hanover Fist 10,000 zuleks to testify on his behalf.
