The launch of Inspiration4 was a success: the all-civil crew of the SpaceX-branded project hasn’t had a hitch for the moment and is currently conducting its three-day mission before returning to Earth. The company, which we have also explored in a dedicated special, is historical in its own way, it is making a lot of talk about itself and in these days it is the protagonist of a Netflix series. Among the congratulatory messages sent to SpaceX and its patron, Elon Musk, there is one less obvious than others: that of Jeff Bezos .
Through a tweet, Bezos wrote: “ Congratulations to Elon Musk and SpaceX for the successful launch of Inspiration4 last night. Another step towards a future where Space will be accessible to all “. Among other things, Musk’s response was not lacking, who, usually rather talkative, limited himself to a “Thank you”.

The exchange of congratulations and thanks is obviously not in itself and great news in itself, after all another space entrepreneur, Richard Branson, also complimented and the same goes for a large number of personalities involved in this particular technology sector.
The difference is that between Bezos and Musk this exchange of courtesies is not taken for granted : over time there there were some clues that the two were not very sympathetic and recently a legal dispute related to Starlink has started, with a back and forth between the company of Musk and Amazon for the orbit of telecommunications satellites.
Meanwhile, St. and you want to follow the progress of Inspiration4, you can do it on Twitter: the account is publishing a large number of photos and contents, informing us among other things that they have already been completed since the start 15 orbits around the Earth.
