The world's wealthiest people are stuck in a 'space race'
A 'Space race' is taking place amongst billionaires. When Jeff Bezos' rocket firm Blue Origin announced that it will send its first astronaut team to space, it reignited the competition for private commercial space travel. Richard Branson, a billionaire entrepreneur, is hoping to beat Bezos to space with his Virgin Galactic space tourism firm. Musk's SpaceX, on the other hand, has been doing so for quite some time.
