Billionaire Richard Branson has flown to the edge of space, fulfilling a lifelong dream: making space tourism a reality. The VSS Unity vessel reached 88km (about 55 miles) above the surface of the Earth - where they experienced a few minutes of microgravity. The 70-year-old British entrepreneur won the billionaires' space race, beating Amazon's Jeff Bezos and Space-X founder Elon Musk to space.
