The flights of Branson and Bezos are literally EGO TRIPS. They are not technologically advanced. They just go up into what is technically space, experience very brief weightlessness, and then come straight down. This is barely more than the level of sophistication as Alan Shepard in the very first space flight in 1961 — sixty years ago.
The only thing remarkable is that the passengers include self-funded multi-billionaires flying in space craft they own.
Even Elon Musk’s company, Space X, is far more advanced, actually transporting passengers all the way to the International Space Station with the rockets returning to land upright. The only difference is that billionaire Musk has not personally been aboard his space ships.
