I was stuck in a meeting -- did he emerge from the capsule with a goatee beard and a sinister twinkle in his eye?

No, but he did turn around in a dramatic way whilst some kettle drums were pounded.

Has a hilarious reporter asked him if he met any aliens yet?

Joke'd be on them when he answered with anecdote that takes four hours

Ah, I see!

Alternatively, was hoping for some real life variation of this

The extras from the capsule should be getting worried now they’re on the planet

Would it have been too much to ask they had #195-290-1:

(not sure who owns it now, since Modern Props closed, it must be in some props repository store,  or Trek fan's collection, somewhere, surely)

Shatner’s three fellow passengers were Audrey Powers, a Blue Origin executive; Chris Boshuizen, a former Nasa engineer and founder of the satellite earth imaging company Planet Labs; and Glen de Vries, chief executive of the clinical research firm Medidata Solutions.

It just sounds so… magical. Floating around a cabin for less time than it takes to boil an egg… with three rich cunts. These people are the new nobility (nothing noble about them), after the Jackpot (William Gibson term) they’ll be the robber barons, and eventually monarchy, lording it over all the serfs. As with everything else in their lives, they’ll know the cost of going into space, but they’ll never understand the value. A life-changing experience? They’d have to be human first.

Is every flight going to be like this? Three rich cunts plus some beloved pop culture figure so we feel bad about hoping they all die in screaming flaming agony?

I hope so. It won't be notable in any way if it's a group of rich people no one has ever heard of before. The rush to be the first celeb to die in space is on.

I was wondering that.  With the flights in the 60's each one was better than the last.  Each time they'd tweak something and add something so each flight broke new boundaries.  Bezos is just going to go in "'space'" for 5 minutes each time isn't he?

He isn't technically leaving the atmosphere to be honest, they say 'space' but it's 105-110km above the planet just for a couple of minutes only.

It's technically space, but it's like reaching base camp on Everest for five minutes and then heading back down claiming you've climbed the mountain.

It's not even a sub-orbital hop, just a glorified Vomit Comet.

This is business now, so maybe it will get worse? This is the high watermark, the Ryanairification begins now

Elon Musk is almost as big a bellend as Bezos, but if he does get his Starship to work for even close to the cost margins he's planning it really will change everything.
