The fifth episode of the Netflix documentary about Inspiration4 will drop on September 30th. There will probably be interviews with crew members about their experiences. So discuss and share them here. One of the main goals was to raise money for St. Judes. That goal has been reached and exceeded with the help of Jared Isaacman ($100 million) and Elon Musk ($50 million).

The I4 crew visit the booster that got them to the edge of space.

Interesting how watching the opening of the cupola video makes that whole thing awfully tangible and real. I'm in no danger of making a meaningful contribution to a $200M ride like that. But another decade of Starship and experience doing flights like that to bring the costs down - maybe I can be like number 10,000 or 100,000 in line for that experience. That'd be unreal.

Or heck - maybe a moon base will get a hotel and shuttle service going at a 'reasonable' cost. Anybody for a week long vacation on the moon!?! Just as long as there's a window to look out of on the way there and back.

I am not too enthusiastic on the usage of the word, 'aftermath' in the title. Aftermath is used generally in disaster situations., which in this case is not.

Indeed.

Bezos, if he's watched, has to be seething... that mission was more ambitious, achieved more, and generally outclassed the BO hop in every conceivable way... and was documented in spectacular fashion for airing on one of the most popular streaming services on the planet.
