After touch down, you want the shroud lines to disconnect under tension so that the capsule does not get dragged and tumbled if a gust of wind picks up the chutes.

I thought this would be a lot cooler, I thought they were going to go up and land as a single stage vehicle. honestly Virgin Galactic seems like a way cooler experience, taking off and landing like a plane to do the same thing. I thought I would feel the exact opposite about it, but now having viewed them both I like the Virgin Galactic sub orbital ride way more with the space shuttle style landing.

So much negativity about this, who cares if they aren't in orbit, they earned their wings and title and that's all that matters and all returned safely
Lensflare Deviant
Lensflare Deviant 7 dager siden
Most of the grief comes from the title and it's meaning. Many people worked long and hard to be called astronaut as a vocation. A career. Now people get to buy the title and are qualified to do nothing that a train astronaut can do. Some feel that's an injustice. I just think we need some new terminology.

For whatever reason today's flight didn't feel like much, maybe it was too quick of a hop or some how it didn't feel (to me) as genuine as Richard's enthusiasm. For the price tag this flight should last at least one full orbit around the planet and then it would be much more attractive as people get enough time to enjoy the view and micro gravity.
Carlos López

@biolotoxin459 I'm aware, but even if it was $ 100,000 per customer (x6) they could make it fly high enough that it does one orbit. But I guess for now they'll just milk the clients that can pay the higher price and then offer this extended ride for 250k and 100k for the hop.

If they want to advertise it as the metric rounding of the Karman line and not the English rounding of the Karman line than ok. It is like rounding a geostationary orbit to 50,000 Km and calling it the clark belt. Rounding up to the next even value does not change the meaning of what the person, who's name is used for the measurement, wanted it to mean! If you want the value to mean something else you should give it a different name or at least add some qualifiers to explain how you are modifying the actual value.
