Ten days after British billionaire Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Galactic, made his first trip into space, Jeff Bezos – the world’s wealthiest man – landed safely back on Earth on Tuesday after a successful launch by his private spaceflight company Blue Origin. Another company, Elon Musk’s Space X, seems focused on more distant travels, like delivering cargo to the moon, Mars, and beyond. Its Crew Dragon spacecraft carrying four astronauts arrived at the International Space Station in April. As the billionaire space race heats up, commercial space tourism is officially taking off. With excitement over an anticipated surge in demand for space travel, the sky seems no longer the limit. But will it be a game only for the rich? What’s the limit for exploration in the final frontier?
