On July 11, 2021, Richard Branson ushered in the era of private space travel by flying to the edge of space in a “space plane” designed and built by his company.
In a few weeks, Jeff Bezos will surpass Branson’s accomplishment by flying above the Karman Line (an altitude of 100 kilometers), the internationally recognized boundary for space, in a “rocket ship” designed and built by his company.
While Elon Musk has not been a passenger in one of his own spacecrafts, SpaceX (his company) put people in space in August 2020.
We discuss these accomplishments, the new space race (and how it’s different from the original space race), and what it means for the next generation of Edisons and Teslas.
Also, stay tuned for the very cool connection Seth has with Richard Branson, plus a sneak preview of a handful of topics coming soon to future episodes!
