Richard Branson Does Q&A About The Virgin Galactic VSS Unity Craft At The Kassi Beach House

Branson also took part in a 20-minute Q&A at the Kassi Beach House. One of the main topics of conversation was his Virgin Galactic VSS Unity craft. This is part of his company’s own space travel program.

Competing against another billionaire, Jeff Bezos of Amazon, the two men are in a race to space. Each is vying to become the first private entity to travel to the stars. Branson added:

“I have dreamt of going to space since I saw the moon landing when I was a teenager. We are tantalizingly close.”

Virgin Galactic was founded 17 years ago and it has been working hard on this dream ever since.
Branson went on to down play the competitive aspect of this race. He added:

“We don’t see it as a race, and obviously it makes a good press for it to be a race…I know Jeff well and neither of us see it as a race. But we see it as, going to space in pioneering a way for thousands of people who will want to have the chance to get to space in safe vehicles, so the second we have a date I will let you know.”
