Explanations of how Virgin Galactic's hybrid engines work in the description above, there are still a few problems engineers need to solve for hybrid motors before it could rival liquid-fuel rockets, in my opinion. The paper is a bit too technical, but if you are a mechanical engineer, do check it out. Also, which one of their services would you choose and why, let me know!

I'm not sure what you mean by ages away. Virgin Galactic has already sent people into space, just not customers yet. And the New Shepard has gone into space unmanned. I expect sub-orbital space trips to be a thing for the wealthy in a year or two. Then once the BFR is ready and cleared for passengers, sub-orbital hops might be affordable for normal people too, and the wealthy could buy a trip to orbit or around the moon.

It makes me sad that you're too young to mention Burt Rutan

I don't think you can compare the two rockets with virgins plane type design. The virgin tip would I imagine be the most affordable trip into space and Because of that it may be more limited.

I think Virgin Galatic will take on Blue Origin and compete for their share of the Tourist Market. In the end though it doesn't matter for BO, as their goal isn't Tourism, it's working up their fleet of vehicles, New Shepherd, New Armstrong, and whatever follows for working in Cis-lunar space and the Moon. Bezos has his goals, and he is not competing with either of the others. I don't see him and Musk getting in each other's way.
Virgin Galactic is mainly a tourist company and while it might have orbital aspirations, it is still stuck in Sub Orbital.
SpaceX on the other hand, are working toward creating a work horse to land on the Moon, and to land on Mars within the next 5 to 8 years. Their plans are in motion as far as we can see, and they are NOT competing with either of the others. Tourism and the Cis-Lunar/Moon for them are a sideline and not a main business model. Their income will be derived from other sources.

Blue origin's rocket is going to lose virginity🚀✈🥒

Given the track record of SpaceX, I would choose them over the other two. But it's 2019, we might see changes.

It's not really fair saying SpaceX is related to space tourism because while you can say the moon mission is space tourism there main focus never was and is most likely never gonna be space tourism

You stated that 51.4 miles is an "American" standard for the edge of space. 51.4 miles was used early on (X-15 days). NASA (ie. US Government) signed the international convention designating 100 kilometers as the edge of space. When Richard Branson stated his spacecraft had reached space he was using the old 51.4 miles convention. He has yet to reach space. Good Research = Solid Facts.
