Lmao guys, some of ya'll are losers for making noise on how "it's not really space, what's to celebrate about" while you type away your sentences.
The guy did something very very very very few of us have, and will even be close to, a personal journey to see our earth above the clouds as an individual who wanted to do so - and not just a man hired and trained by the government to go on a space mission.
Like what the fuck do you guys need to acknowledge the actual gravity of this news?
You, a fucking individual, can now have the dream to want to see our planet from a height thought impossible - a dream that has existed for centuries - and can earn the means to live that dream if you so choose to dedicate your life to accumulate the wealth it requires to do so.
Every single photo you've ever seen of Earth from space can now be seen in person, with your own goddamn eyes.
If that doesn't excite you, then please continue to breathing while others make way for the future you will undoubtedly will only complain and moan about anyway.
Yeah, its cool. But these news headlines like "mankind has come a step closer to conquering space" are just so ridiculous....
