Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Galactic, may have plans to beat Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos in becoming the first billionaire to fly on their own suborbital spaceship according to a report from the website Parabolic Arc.

“Ever since I was five years old, I’ve dreamed of traveling to space,” Bezos wrote on Instagram earlier this week. “On July 20th, I will take that journey with my brother. The greatest adventure, with my best friend.”

Branson tweeted a message of congratulations to Bezos after he announced this week that he and his brother Mark will be onboard the ship next month, but also included a note to “watch this space.”

“Many congratulations to @JeffBezos & his brother Mark on announcing spaceflight plans,” Branson tweeted on Monday. “Jeff started building @blueorigin in 2000, we started building @virgingalactic in 2004 & now both are opening up access to Space – how extraordinary! Watch this space…”

Parabolic Arc claimed in a report on Monday that “Virgin Galactic is working on a plan to send Branson on a suborbital flight aboard the VSS Unity SpaceShipTwo rocket plane over the July 4 holiday weekend, according to a source who requested anonymity.”

This would place Branson’s flight two weeks before Bezos’, but Virgin Galactic has not confirmed that their founder will be aboard.
