Jeff Bezos offers well wishes to Richard Branson ahead of space launch

Jeff Bezos has nothing but kind words for Virgin Galactic CEO Richard Branson — who is set to beat the Amazon founder to the punch as the first billionaire in space Sunday.

Bezos posted a picture of a beaming Branson on Instagram Saturday, with the caption, “Wishing you and the whole team a successful and safe flight tomorrow. Best of luck!”

The multi-billionaire, 57, announced last month that he would head into space on July 20 with his company Blue Origin.

Then July 1 rolled around, and Branson, 70, said his own space trip would be a week earlier.

“I truly believe that space belongs to all of us,” Branson said in his announcement of the trip.
