What's behind the latest space race and the rise of space billionaires?

Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson all seem to be in the middle of a new space race, all with seemingly different justifications for their extraterrestrial explorations. But what is behind the push for the recent space travel push, when so much has reached crisis point on earth why are the worlds wealthiest facing the skies? Are they formulating a billionaires escape route? Are they trying to create new industries for the increasingly wealthy superwealthy 1%? Or are we witnessing a new space race of the billionaires?

Musk will lead the way

Elon musk is leading the new space race, his company, Space X, have already carried out missions to the International Space Station (ISS) – a massive head start on his rivals. For Space X and Musk this seems much more a long term hope for humanity rather than a just a push into a new commercial niche opened up by technology. Musk has stated that space presents hope for humanity on a planet rife with problems, if civilisation is going to survive the massive challenges that it faces space and space exploration offer the final frontier of new hope and Musk is leading the way in this technological field.
