Blue Origin’s launch came just nine days after Virgin Galactic launched its founder, Sir Richard Branson, to the edge of space.

The billionaire launched from Spaceport America on Sunday July 11, in a rocket plane that’s been in development for almost two decades.

Branson’s rocket plane, known as Unity, was launched by a larger space rocket, before the plane was released, and climbed to 282,000ft.

He safely returned to Earth an hour later, and the trip was deemed a huge success.
