New Delhi : Not only the earth, but the billionaires of the world are also competing for projects related to space. After former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, billionaire businessman and Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson have also announced their space mission. Six astronauts, including India-born Sirisha Bandla, will take off from Virgin Galactic’s ‘VSS Unity’ tomorrow i.e. on Sunday, July 11.
Branson will be the first billionaire in space!
Richard Branson announced his space mission on July 1 and said that July 11 was set for its launch. If his mission is successful, he will be the first billionaire to reach space. This flight to space is to be done from New Mexico. Former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has announced his flight to space nine days later on July 20.
Richard Branson’s space mission is also special for India in many ways. One important reason for this is the association of Sirisha Bandla, who was born in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh. Although she later moved to America with her parents, where she was raised. The second important reason is that the billionaire businessman Richard Branson, who has announced this ambitious space mission, is also closely related to India.
British businessman’s roots are associated with India
The British business tycoon surprised many in 2019 by saying that his roots lie in Cuddalore in Tamil Nadu, India. He was here in Mumbai to celebrate the new route of his airline Virgin Atlantic, when he mentioned his association with Indian roots that it would be sometime in 1793, when his ancestors lived here.
He had told that his Great, Great, Great Grandmother Area belonged to India, who was married to a British citizen. The 70-year-old billionaire businessman also said that whenever he meets an Indian, he feels that they can be his relative.
