Two Billionaires Have Now Been To Space

Earlier this month, Richard Branson became the first Billionaire to visit space. He and 3 other people ventured out of the Earth’s atmosphere aboard Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo on July 11th. Then yesterday, Jeff Bezos (former GOTW) and 3 others blasted in space aboard Blue Origin’s New Shepard spacecraft. It seems the bragging contest has already begun as Bezos is claiming they reached an altitude of 330,000 feet while Branson only achieved 282,000.
