Because of the competition between SpaceX and Virgin Galactic (although the degree of overlap is not particularly high), many people may assume that the bosses of the two companies, Elon Musk and Sir Richard Branson, will not get along well with each other. It’s just that the facts are really different from what the outside world imagined.according toWall Street JournalAccording to the statement received from Virgin Galactic, Musk has actually reserved a seat on their rocket. The specific space travel time is currently unknown, but it will probably cause a sensation when it comes.

While accepting Sunday Times During the interview, Sir Branson also referred to Musk as his “friend” and stated that “someday” he might also take a SpaceX rocket. Before the successful VSS Unity launch mission, he also specially posted a photo of the two on Twitter. Unlike these two big brothers who cherish each other, Jeff Bezos of Blue Origin on the other side does not seem so gregarious. On the eve of Sir Branson’s flight into space, Blue Origin also criticized Virgin Galactic for being robbed of the limelight. Next week will be the first manned flight of Blue Origin, which Bezos will personally participate in. Will there be any interaction among the big figures?
