  1. Launch for half the cost, sure, no problem.

    What’s that? You want to land safely afterward?

    Well…. that’ll cost you the other half.

  2. This is what its known as a “scam.”

    This is how stupid people give money to smarter people.

  3. You know you’re doing something right when you’re the metric other companies tailor their advertising around

  4. right right, then another company will claim it can do it with a quarter of the price. lol

    Lots of claims, no rockets.

  5. I mean… I *hope* they can. That’d be pretty cool. Still pressing X to doubt.

  6. This website should be banned for this drivel.

  7. I can do it for 1% of the price but I need it up front, today.

  8. Startup + CGI + insane promise. Yes checks all the boxes.

    Just trying to raise money folks, nothing more, nothing less.

  9. I can can do it for half their cost. Now, where’s that funding at?

  10. Well go on, put your rocket where your mouth is.

  11. The same company that photoshopped their rocket into reality

  13. A “new” “startup” can launch at half the cost of a company that has spent billions in realized R&D.

    What seed money you minting in this economy, braw? Your crypto still Apetastic? Didn’t Vector go bankrupt?

  14. Launch at half the cost of the rocket that SpaceX is working toward replacing with a rocket that can launch at a sixth the cost. Yeah nice job

  15. Is this related to the Phantom gaming console?

  16. How much do they charge to land? There’s always a catch

  17. They named it “Phantom” rocket company and then people paid for the stock with no
    product just a business plan. I have to say that is just nuts!

  18. Yeah, launch right into the side of a mountain maybe

  19. Yeah…looking forward to budget space flight…not Space X, Space Less!

  20. It’s all vaporware until you prove you can do it.

  21. That’s nothing, my rocket company can do it half the cost of Phantom Space. Pinky promise.

  22. I have a rabbit that only eats kale but shits gold.

  23. You know who else can launch at half the cost of SpaceX?

    SpaceX.

  24. I seem to remember a company called “Astra” making similar claims against Rocket Lab…

  25. Alright, get to orbit first, then we can talk, just like stupid Blue Origin.

  26. Probably half the cost and a tenth of the payload.

  27. SpaceX could probably charge a whole lot less – but they don’t need to (they need to fund their next rocket).

    All they need to do is charge a bit less than the competition.

  28. I wanna go to the moon these holidays! Think I’ll try the cut price carriers! (never heard of again).

  29. Sure they will! Same as Blue Origin New Glenn.

    /s if it wasn’t obvious for some 😅

  30. Is this Phantom Fireworks ?

    https://fireworks.com/

  31. Yeah right scam. Spacex skimmed the bottom of the barrel. Nice try

  32. I can do it for 1/4 the cost. Just need investors to give me 1 billion dollars first. Then I totally promise I’ll do it. I pinky swear.

  33. This is the same CEO that led Vector Launch (nowhere)

  34. Sir here we only glorify what Elon musk does. Please move along.

  35. Are we sure discount shopping rides to space is where we want to cut costs? I feel like this is one of those things where you get what you pay for…

  36. I am all for space shit but what if we spent these billions on something that would directly help ppl instead of launching rockets for the hell of it.
