Not to be one-upped by Branson or Bezos, SpaceX announces that Musk will fly on the starship orbital test flight happening July 3rd

Starbase, TX — Today, SpaceX announced they will be launching Elon Musk on an external seat of starship for its orbital flight next month. This comes after Branson and Bezos' said that they will both be flying on their own rockets to space in the upcoming months. While Spacex hasn't said it officially, it is believed that they are doing this to one-up Branson and Bezos, being the first of this group not just in space, but in orbit.

The aerodynamics of this vessel don't appear to be all that good with Musk hanging of off the side, and it is not known how they will keep Musk safe from asphyxiation and overheating on re-entry, but knowing SpaceX, they will be able to pull it off.
