A SWITCH OF A TOURISM: Branson SUCCESSFULLY traveled the universe
British billionaire Richard Branson landed on Earth without any problems after spending a few minutes on the border of space in the spacecraft of his company Virgin Galactic, realizing the journey he has always dreamed of and which represents a turning point towards space tourism.
The “VSS Unity” aircraft with two pilots and three other passengers, after a short flight into space, landed on the runway at the “Space Sport America” base, in the American state of New Mexico, today at around 9.40 local time (17.40 Central European Time).
Branson is the first billionaire to travel to space in a spacecraft built by his company, and thus overtook his American rival Jeff Bezos, who is scheduled to make a space flight on July 20.
In front of about 500 spectators, including Branson’s wife, children and grandchildren, in the first phase of the flight, a special plane was carrying a plane with Branson and five crew members from his space tourism company, Virgin Galactic.
The “space plane” then separated from the parent plane at an altitude of about 13 kilometers and started its engines and reached the edge of space at an altitude of about 88 kilometers. After a few minutes of weightlessness for the crew, the plane headed back and landed on Earth.
The boundary of the universe is, it is calculated, at an altitude of 80 kilometers, where the color of the sky changes from dark blue to the black color of cosmic infinity, where you can feel the weightlessness and see how the Earth is curved.
Branson’s official role during the summer was to test and evaluate the experience that his future clients will have.
