Virgin Galactic took Branson and other of its employees on a quick trip to space, which depicts the final flight test before commencing its commercial space travel. As expected Jeff Bezos Blue Origin and Elon Musk SpaceX pose as rivalry towards the Virgin Galactic commercial space travel business.
Still, Elon Musk reportedly purchased Virgin Galactic VIP tickets to visit space via its newly developed spaceplane. Prior to this report, the SpaceX founder was spotted barefoot in a photograph, displaying merriment with Branson when he hosted a party celebrating a successful space project.
Branson’s space company disclosed to media Houses about Elon Musk hyped adrenaline to support Virgin Galactic space mission regardless of his SpaceX project that also set to venture into the commercial space business as well. Still, Virgin Galactic did not disclose the exact time their space plane will fly the Technoking to space.
Branson also confirmed Elon Musk’s reserved tickets to patronize his business. It worth noting that Branson and Musk are best buddies — Branson had to reference the picture he shared as a tweet that also featured the Technoking. Branson also revealed he will travel with the SpaceX spaceship when the time is right.
On the other hand, Blue Origin thinks otherwise of Virgin Galactic’s success — Jeff Bezos space company represents a perfect counterpart aiming to rival the virgin commercial space business. Blue Origin is quite convinced Branson could do better than taking off to space for just an hour.
According to Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic only visits the edge of space and the best passengers on board can do is capture panoramic views of the Earth. Still, they had to wish Branson and his crew a safer journey on board SpaceShipTwo.
Techbooky expects to suggest Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic have a lesser chance of a futuristic partnership.
Elon Musk and Richard Branson happen to be best friends because their respective space business does not contradict each other services directly. Note that Virgin Galactic focuses on space tourism, while SpaceX focuses its services on deploying satellites to space.
Still, SpaceX tries to venture into commercializing its space business — the space company usually carries expensive payloads to space, while they attempted to venture into Virgin Galactic kind of flybys of lunar space tourism. Both space companies are currently on good terms, hopefully, it lasts longer than expected.
