While your kids’ number one career goal might be to become a million dollar influencer rather than an astronaut, there’s another ones and twos question that’s been bothering Earthians. How do you go to the loo in space… especially during a global toilet paper shortage? 🧻 Humbling for even space’s billionaire high flying class of 2021.
What’s not so hard to guess… is that knowing the loo situ, the two-in-three of us who’ve become germaphobes over the past one ‘n’ two years may not be giant leaping onto Sir Richard Branson’s flash commercial space vehicles anytime soon. 🚀 But Virgin Galactic (SPCE) still plans to pump up production to build six each year. And they have high hopes passenger space flight will launch their sustainable revenue #tothemoon.
But don’t buckle up for your US$450,000 joyride to the mesosphere quite yet (for a view you can see for free 🌏). A couple of Wall Streeters still see the space pioneer’s pushed-out April 2023 test launch date as a flight of fancy. One adding the company could ‘burn through the $1.1 billion cash’ they have sooner than next year’s Roswell UFO Festival. 👽 Following a year of disappointing earnings, Virgin Galactic’s share price fell faster than SpaceX space junk, with analysts lowering their price targets, seeing a 14% share price drop in premarket trading last Friday.
While a Boeing subsidiary’s (BA) on board to build Branson’s motherships, the US multinational’s still weathering turbulence in skies closer to home, continuing to miss earnings. And now Pelosi’s Taiwan trip’s potentially crashed the air company’s China jetliner order hopes. Meanwhile, as Rocket Lab’s (RKLB) fuels up for earnings this week, analysts forecast a median share price lift off of 180.64% over the coming year. 👩🚀 Roger that.
