Branson to beat Bezos in Sprint to the Kármán line
Sir Richard Branson and his Virgin Galactic crew will fly right into the outer space today at 6AM Pacific. Mothership "VMS Eve" will carry the spaceship "VSS Unity" to the outer space. At about 80km altitude, the engines will be shut off and the crew will experience zero G and stunning views. Branson promised to announce something awesome once he returns and we wish him all the best! YouTube will livestream the entire event. Do watch!
