Despite the fact that Blue Origin, which is backed by the former head of Amazon Jeff Bezos, and SpaceX, owned by Elon Musk, are competing companies in terms of popularizing space and its accessibility to humans (relatively, of course ) they are doing the same thing. Further proof of this is the congratulations that Bezos sent to Musk on Twitter in connection with the successful launch of the Inspiration4 mission yesterday.
Congratulations to Elon Musk and the SpaceX team on their successful launch of Inspiration4 last night. This is another step towards a future in which space will be available to all of us, ” Bezos wrote. Musk responded with gratitude.
Interestingly, just a couple of weeks ago, Musk rebuked Bezos for retiring to pursue legal action against SpaceX. Then, we recall, Amazon turned to the US Federal Communications Commission with a request to consider a ban on the deployment of the Starlink SpaceX network. Allegedly, Elon Musk's company violates the rules for deploying satellites.
