I would think Branson would be jealous, his own company, Virgin Galactic, hasn't done much since 2014. There was big hype around Virgin Galactic being the first private company to send tourists into space but not much has happened recently with them.
If his space port opened and he started flying the people who paid deposits like a decade ago...That'd be a good start.
Pretty sure I know Elons thoughts on the matter: Do it.
aaa good old ol narcisisim pushing humanity to the stars, thats the sprit.
A few thoughts:
- of all the eccentric billionaires, I find Branson probably knows how to party most accurately like a rockstar
- I hope these new age space moguls have a space race greater than the cold war type, no matter their intentions. Whether it's ego, the innate need to explore, or to push humanity further
- do i live in a box or where did OP find this website. They seem to have put this article together from a CNN piece
- I can't believe Jeff Bezos went from selling me college books a decade ago to launching a space venture!
$20,000 500 mile range autonomous electric car capable of carrying 7 people and has nice styling and comes with a 10yr/100000mile bumper to bumper warranty. Do it, Beardy.
This is how real progress works: Old rich fucks getting jealous.
LOOK OUT EVERYBODY! WE GOT A SPACE RACE BREWING OVER HERE!
The comparison isn’t even fair, as what SpaceX has achieved is orders of magnitude more difficult than what Virgin is attempting to accomplish. Suborbital flight to 50Km above the Earth vs reusable heavy lift rocket capable of deep space missions.
