The businessman checked into the Twitter of the Russian official
American businessman, founder of SpaceX Elon Musk reacted to the post of the head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin on Twitter. Earlier, he reproached Russian billionaires for their unwillingness to invest in space technology.
A Russian official on his Twitter commented on the flight of British billionaire Richard Branson on board Virgin Galactic’s VSS Unity. The ship reached the boundaries of space, after which it landed safely.
Rogozin noted that, from an expert point of view, this flight on a private spacecraft has nothing to do with professional astronautics. At the same time, he called it a landmark event in terms of technology and human empowerment.
“I hope that someday our billionaire oligarchs will start spending their money not on regular yachts and vanity fairs, but on the development of space technologies and knowledge about space,” added Rogozin.
In the comments to this tweet noted Elon Musk. He did not write anything, but left two emoji in the form of applauding hands.
Earlier it became known that before Branson’s flight, Musk personally came to the cosmodrome to wish him good luck.
Jeff Bezos, the third member of the space triad of billionaires, previously said that on July 20 he will fly into space with his brother on the New Shepard spacecraft.
