Elon Musk will go into “space” for the first time on a Virgin Galactic ship, not on a SpaceX rocket



In an interview with The Sunday Times, British billionaire Richard Branson confirmed that SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk has booked a seat for one of Virgin Galactic’s next spacecraft launches.

Richard Branson added that Elon Musk is his other, and it is possible that one day he will go into space on one of SpaceX’s ships. It is not yet known when Elon Musk is going to fly on the Virgin Galactic ship. According to The Wall Street Journal, a seat on the ship is offered for $ 250,000. At the same time, passengers are offered to be in zero gravity for several minutes.

Recall that yesterday, Virgin Galactic successfully launched its Unity-22 spacecraft with Richard Branson and several other astronauts, which then landed at Spaceport America in New Mexico.

Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos congratulated Richard Branson on the successful space flight, although Bezos’ company Blue Origin previously said it would not recognize this flight as space. The word “space” has been placed in quotation marks, as the Virgin Galactic spacecraft ascended to an altitude of 86 km, while the “boundary of space” (Karman’s line) begins at an altitude of 100 km.

Here it is necessary to clarify that Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are direct competitors and have never declared their friendship, unlike Musk and Branson.
