Virgin Galactic's disaster-struck space tourism programme is apparently nearing final launch readiness, with Branson telling USA news site CNBC that: "We should be in space within weeks, not months".
"And then we will be in space with myself in months and not years", he continued. Branson was referring to the Virgin Galactic spaceship being developed by the company for future commercial trips into space.
Branson added that Musk "needs to learn the art of delegation" and should work to "find a fantastic team of people around him".
