virgin galactic space race

Breaking news just in, Famous British billionaire Richard Branson believes that his space company Virgin Galactic is “more than tantalizingly close” to its first trip to space.


“We should be in space within weeks, not months. And then we will be in space with myself in months and not years,” the Virgin founder and CEO told CNBC’s Nancy’s Hungerford in Singapore Tuesday.

“We will be in space with people not too long after that so we have got a very, very exciting couple of months ahead,” he added.

We are seeing more and more headlines break from the privatised space race which might spark the question, where do the governments stand on this. If the private sector is pushing heavy for space exploration from Elon musk’s Spacex mission to the moon and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin, is it time for the worlds government’s to re spark their interest in space exploration?
