Humans have been to the moon and Mars thanks to science, albeit the latter has yet to be visited by humans. However, space flight has an endless attraction, and the desire to escape Earth’s gravity is the most exciting element of it.
Since every other Billionaire is leaving Earth and going to space, the question persists which Billionaire is winning the space race?
Richard Branson‘s Virgin Galactic is clearly winning the race as the VSS Unity spacecraft was successfully launched on July 11th. Richard Branson has safely returned to Earth aboard Virgin’s rocket-powered plane, becoming the first billionaire to fly to space on a spaceship he helped fund. At the end of its roughly 90-minute trip, the VSS Unity encountered several minutes of microgravity.
While other billionaires are way behind:
- Jeff Bezos‘s Blue origin first astronaut crew will go into space on July 20th.
- Elon Musk‘s SpaceX will be launching its all civilian mission Inspiration4 by the 4th quarter of 2021.
Mind you, all these billionaire’s companies have opened doors for space tourism. Virgin Galactic has already taken 600+ customers with high-profile celebrities like Leonardo Dicaprio and Justin Bieber.
Why are they going to Space?
- First, for boosting space tourism
- Second, for instilling stunning confidence in customers as they search for their own short adventure experiences.
So now, we will have people in the space spreading infections, polluting and populating the space sector as well.
