Richard Branson will fly into space on July 11, 2021

Friday 7/2/21 time 1:09 PM


It has finally been made public. The date of the first commercial flight was announced today. It is 11.07.2021. The flight takes place from Spaceport America, New Mexico and there are 2 pilots and 4 passengers. Richard Branson is one of them. My own space flight will also happen from the same place.

I have an invitation to go on the spot to watch the flight, this imformation came late for me. I should  fly to El Paso, Texas, the travel time will easily be 24 hours and the time zone difference is big. Maybe I’m there virtually, because this flight is going to be watched live in many different media that day.

Virgin Galactica's competitors, Jeff Bezos and Blue Origin, is doing also a similar flight on July 20, 2021. Bezos released the news yesterday and Branson today.

I wonder if the boys are betting on which one will be first? And the winner gets a beer? In the 1960s, there was also competition between the super powers on space flights, whichever comes first. Today, rich boys compete for space flights with each other.
