I’m a measly human being, sitting in my room, and typing away words, waiting for the world to open so I can meet my friends freely, and travel to places.

But billionaires don’t have these problems. If they want to get away from the earth, they just fly to space. Elon Musk, Tesla’s Technoking, is also doing the same by buying a ticket on a plane of Virgin Galactic, owned by Richard Branson. That makes me wonder, is Jeff Bezos feeling left out?

A report from the Wall Street Journal suggests that Musk has bought a $250,000 ticket for a short visit to space. But there’s no detail on when his flight is scheduled, as there’s a long waiting list. 

In an interview with the UK’s Sunday Times, Branson said, “Elon’s a friend and maybe I’ll travel on one of his ships one day.” Plus, he tweeted his own photo with Musk before the flight.

Last night, Branson successfully flew into space through a rocket-powered plane. By doing so, he became the first billionaire to grace the space, keeping Bezos behind. It was literally “fifteen minutes of fame” for Branson, as the actual space flight lasted just 15 minutes. You can watch the flight stream here.

Meanwhile, newly-retired Bezos is set to also fly to space in his space company Blue Origin’s New Shephard vehicle on July 20. The firm tweeted out a comparison chart between its space vehicle and Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo. 

Please note that there’s a special row about the size of the windows in the vehicle, claiming they’re “the largest windows in space.” Weird flex, but okay.

Now, we have to wait for Bezos’ flight to see if he will mention Branson or Musk.

Meanwhile, I hope Musk is taking a symbolic dogecoin with him during his flight. After all, market manipulation and space travel is what billionaire life’s all about.
