- World’s legendary billionaire Richard Branson has created history by traveling to space
- Virgin Galactic owner Branson is the first billionaire to travel to space
- Richard breaks the dream of world’s richest billionaire Jeff Bezos to be the first
World’s legendary billionaire Richard Branson has created history by traveling in space at the age of 70. Virgin Galactic owner Branson is the first billionaire in the world to travel into space. Not only this, Richard has set a record by traveling in space at such an age. Along with this, Richard has broken the dream of world richest billionaire Jeff Bezos to go to space first, which has provoked his company Blue Origin.
Richard Branson was warmly welcomed by his wife and children upon his return to Earth. According to Richard, going to space was his childhood dream. Branson and his fellow five other Virgin Galactic crews climbed 280,000 feet from the VSS Unity vehicle. After returning to Earth, Richard said, ‘Like every child, I also dreamed of the opportunity to travel in space. But nothing can prepare you for how the Earth looks from space. Everything was completely magical.’
Richard Branson wins
Richard tweeted a picture taken from the plane during this journey. He wrote- ‘Welcome to the new dawn of the space age.’ Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest billionaire, first wanted to travel to space, but Richard Branson won it. Jeff Bezos is also going to travel to space on July 20. Meanwhile, after Jeff Bezos’s dream is shattered, his company Blue Origin has raged on Richard Branson.
Jeff Bezos’s company Blue Origin said that Richard Branson is not technically the first billionaire to have traveled to space. It said that Virgin Galactic’s space plane flight should not be considered a “space flight” because it will not cross the Carman line. Actually, Branson traveled 89 km above the earth from the desert of New Mexico. The American space agency NASA believes that space begins from 80 km above the Earth.
New Shepherd will reach a height of 100 km
On the other hand, Blue Origin claims that this is not a journey to the true boundary line of space. Unlike Branson, Jeff Bezos’ space ship New Shepherd will go to an altitude of 100 km above Earth. Blue Origin claims that most people believe that space begins at an altitude of 100 km. It said the New Shepherd rocket is designed to go above the Carman line.
