It’s official: Sir Richard Branson made it to space!

The billionaire launched his rocket plane into orbit on Sunday, beating out fellow space bound rich guy Jeff Bezos.

Branson had been developing the vehicle for the past 17 years.

Now that a successful mission has been done, Branson is expected to incorporate this experience into future space tourism.

Would you ever go to space if given the chance? Do you think Richard Branson used his money wisely for this project?
