Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk, who have often traded barbs publicly about their rocket companies, were seen as polite and friendly after the Inspiration4 launch.
Bezos congratulated Musk and SpaceX for the successful launch of a nonprofessional astronaut crew to orbit.
The Amazon.com founder tweeted, “Congratulations to @ElonMusk and the @SpaceX team on their successful Inspiration4 launch last night. Another step towards a future where space is accessible to all of us”.
Musk even replied politely, “Thank You”.
Yesterday, SpaceX’s first private flight streaked into Earth’s orbit, making it the most ambitious leap yet in space tourism. It was the first time a spacecraft circled Earth with an all-amateur crew and no professional astronauts.
