  How many free flights is BO giving out? Seems that best way to keep media attention focused on suborbital circus ride is to comp a ticket for a media (preferably TV news) personality on each launch. Another seat for a flight heritage personality doesn't hurt either.
  Yes, this is a curmudgeonly observation. Mods delete if needed.

 Good Luck! But how are they even going to have room to float about in there? Six people, and one that is as big as Mike? !!! Should be fun though. :)

I've been in one of the capsule with five other people when they brought one to Oshkosh.  I found it to be very crowded and cramped when we were all standing (For perspective I am tallerr than Michael Strahan).  Their maneuvers while floating are going to be tight and probably are not going to be to do too much moving across the cabin.  I suspect they will mostly have to stay close to their own seat. But hopefully the cabin video will be released and we will see.

Current record is 16 (Unity-22) but that point will be moot tomorrow.

Current record is 16 (Unity-22) but that point will be moot tomorrow.

Here is another little stat.

I was looking at the list of all human beings who have ever been to space (as defined by passing the Karman Line at 100km).  Since the retirement of the Space Shuttle, the number of new people per calendar year passing the Karman Line who have never been to space before has been:

2012 - 5
2013 - 6
2014 - 5
2015 - 5
2016 - 6
2017 - 4
2018 - 4
2019 - 5
2020 - 3

What a difference a year makes.  As of December 10, 2021, the number of NEW people who have passed the Karman Line in this calendar year is:

2021 - 22

And NS-9 will make it 28.
