Two of the pioneers in space travel Elon Musk and Richard Branson compete not in the business arena but on social media. This comes after Musk posted on Instagram SpaceX's top secret military launch that happened just days before.

The amazing journey to space that landed at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida has gathered more than half a million likes according to The Sun. Virgin Galactic owner Branson followed Musk by posting a photo of his spacecraft that can transport humans to space. However, the photo was not clear enough to view.

Branson's post reads, "Here's another image from today's successful test flight! In this shot, VSS Unity flies in the feather configuration, testing out the vehicle's re-entry system." The English business magnate is the trendsetter of commercial space travels.

His competitor is also into space travels using reusable rockets which are cheaper than regular space crafts. The Tesla founder won over Branson on social media likes but a possibility is that those likes may come from the fans of his rumored girlfriend, Amber Heard.

Just last week, photos of Musk and Heard were seen on social media with the SpaceX founder sporting a red lipstick mark on his cheek. Heard's divorce from "Pirates of the Caribbean" star Johnny Depp was turbulent but just recently it was finalized with the actor shelling out millions.

The Daily Breeze reported that Musk aside from wanting to put a human colony in the Red Planet by 2030 is also planning to drill underground highways to ease traffic jams. Mars is seen as a second home to humans as what the famous Stephen Hawking has predicted. When humans are overpowered by AIs humanity will be wiped out from the face of the earth.

Elon Musk and Richard Branson who have pioneered space travel will surely find their ventures flourishing. Hopefully, they will no longer compete but work together for the good of mankind.
