    If I were taking a $200k vacation... that would be it.
    Although short, not many people can say they saw the earth from the edge of space

    Branson is a badass.
    It is vital that we work to a few golden rules. Always work in a small team. Keep a very low profile. Only deal with people who come recommended. And it's like selling anything else: washing machines, hand made shoes, blowjobs. As long as you don't take the piss people will always come back for more. And that is not to say we don't have that special kind of magic that makes two kilos into three. But never be too greedy.

    Scaled Composites - A.K.A Burt Rutan is THE badass.

    Branson is just the cash. Could have been Buffet or anyone else behind the dollars, but it could ONLY have been Rutan and his team to make this work.

    Branson is the only one who will fund something like this..you have to admire the man who dreams this up...unless it was just a proposal that he funded.

    You can dream and fund all you want, if there are no qualified people to turn dream into reallity, its just a dream.

    Toyota spent more money/largest budget than any team in F1. They could not even "buy" 1 win in the many years they were involved. Ross Brawn/Rory Byrne/ and Adrian Newey have ammased huge success in F1regardless of who's name was on their shirts. Money is available, technical genius is in short supply. Burt Rutan is a genius.
