Elon Musk, the famous founder of Tesla, recently congratulated his rival Jeff Bezos, the founder to Amazon, on his aerospace company, Blue Origin’s successful flight into space.

Blue Origin sent 4 passengers to space on a trip that lasted approximately 11 minutes. The passengers included employees of NASA and Blue Origin, and none other than the famous ‘Star Trek’ actor William Shatner.

It is also known that Musk tries to take digs at Bezos at various events, however, deeply respects Shatner, as prior to the flight he wished him luck, while referring to him as “Godspeed Captain”.

A few days back Jeff Bezos tweeted a picture of a cover story telling that Amazon would fail, the CEO Amazon captioned it with a motivational note encouraging people to believe in oneself. Elon Musk instantly approached the comments section, and posted a silver medal with ‘2’ written on it. Musk, during an interview with Forbes in September, said that he would send a silver medal and statue to Bezos after surpassing him at being the richest person in the world.
