How Bezos' Blue Origin 'Controlled Explosion' Differs From Branson's Virgin Galactic

While Virgin Galactic’s Richard Branson beat Jeff Bezos to space in the billionaire space race, Blue Origin will soar a bit higher. Tim Fernholz, a senior reporter at Quartz, joined Cheddar to provide some additional insight into tomorrow’s scheduled launch."It's going to be quite a dog and pony show," he said. "I think the big value for Blue Origin and Bezos here is basically propaganda for space." Olympia LePoint, an award-winning rocket scientist, also joined Cheddar to talk about how Blue Origin compares to VSS Unity and the challenges the rocket will encounter. "It is an explosion, a controlled explosion, to get into outer space," she said.
