Branson: Virgin Galactic “Should Be In Space Within Weeks" Written 10 October 2018

The Washington Post reports that Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson told CNBC in an interview on Tuesday, “We should be in space within weeks, not months.” Branson added that “then we will be in space with myself in months and not years.” Although Branson has previously estimated that Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin would launch persons into space around the same time, he clarified that the two companies “are not in a race to get to space. … All that matters in the end is that everybody is safe and well.”
