It may be Branson over Bezos in the Billionaire Blast Off Race to space. We’ve known that both of them have this quest to show off, so it’s not as surprising. I’m hopeful that it’s successful, as this dangerous trip is needed to challenge more people towards the dream of what could be, instead of our many years of not returning to the moon, or venturing further to Mars. I think we are destined to move to Space, if we can look past the problems and see those possibilities.

Richard Branson will take a rocket-powered space plane on a 2,400 mile-per-hour ride to the edge of space this weekend. That’s if everything goes according to plan. And there’s plenty that could go wrong.
