On July 11, Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Galactic, made history by being part of the crew of the first “tourist” trip to space, but shortly before taking off he published a photo with his “friend” Elon Musk.

In a Twitter message, Branson appears next to the founder of SpaceX and who, at first glance, should be his rival in the space race. "Big day ahead. Great to start the morning with a friend," he noted.

The English businessman tweeted that he felt good, excited and ready for his trip.
