Why did Elon Musk visit Richard Branson at night before the VSS Unity rocket plane flight

(ORDO NEWS) — The founder of Virgin Airlines and Virgin Galactic, Richard Branson, spoke about an interesting incident from his life that happened on the eve of his first flight to the border with space on July 11, 2021.

Branson said that he did not sleep well, was nervous before the upcoming flight, it was around 2:30 in the morning.

He woke up early, began to get ready, went down to the kitchen, and suddenly saw a barefoot Elon Musk walking around Branson’s kitchen with his son XÆA-12.

As it turned out, Musk was let in by Branson’s security guard, and in order not to disturb the head of Virgin Galactic from sleeping, Musk simply took off his shoes.

Then two space fans made a kettle, sat outside, looked at the stars and just talked. So Elon Musk decided to support his friend before the most outstanding and risky day in the life of Richard Branson.

Let me remind you that on July 11, 2021, Virgin Galactic flew the VSS Unity rocket plane.

As a result, the device developed a speed three times the speed of sound, and reached the mark of 86 kilometers, providing everyone on board with several minutes of weightlessness.

In addition to the two pilots, there were four passengers on board, including the head of the company, Richard Branson.
