    Musk and SpaceX have their thread, let's give Bezo's some love, since he plans to start manned flights next year.

    I agree. The rocket powered dildo deserves its own thread.

    What about Virgin Galactic? They have the prettiest rockets.

    Yeah I'd wear a diaper. Plus I also want a puke bag.

    I wouldn't eat for at least 5 hours before the flight (and a small meal at that) but I'd still want the bag just in case.

    In case anyone wonders:

    Alan Shepard was the first US astronaut to fly a sub-orbital rocket, Mercury-Redstone 3, in May 1961. He dubbed the mercury capsule "Freedom 7."

    John Glenn was the first US astronaut to orbit the earth on Mercury-Atlas 6, in February 1962. The capsule was dubbed "Friendship 7."

    Yuri Gagarin orbited earth in Vostok 1 in April 1961.
