Space Adventures of Business Magnate P.J King
Does the name Patrick Joseph King ring a bell? Or maybe you heard of him as P.J King? Yeah, he is an eccentric and equally controversial businessman from Ireland who, as an adult man, wants to realize his boyish dreams.
Coming from the shepherd’s family, King knew that he needs to be prepared for everything if he wants to build another kind of life for himself. Upon graduation, he started undertaking various often risky business ventures and getting close to powerful but dubious characters. He started getting rich by creating and selling companies. Interestingly, P.J always had a good advisor who knew when was the right moment to get rid of the troubled company. The last company he founded was Venturion LLC in 2018, but for that moment, we don’t have information about its destiny. The wealth that never stops accumulating King is using to have as much fun as he can get.
Since childhood, he was obsessed with the universe and astronauts, so he studied Aeronautics and Space engineering. He didn’t become an astronaut, though, but it didn’t stop him from pursuing the dream. In 2012, King joined a group gathered around Sir Richard Branson that was planning to take off on a space voyage. Branson’s company Virgin Galactic created and offered a successful and rich businessman the opportunity to travel to space. The price of the single ticket was around $200.000. The ship, unfortunately, never managed to fly across the Earth’s orbit, but it doesn’t mean that P.J King gave up on his childhood fantasy.
