One Hell Of An Amazon Delivery: Go To Space With Jeff Bezos
Amazon founder and BILLIONAIRE Jeff Bezos has announced that he will jetting off in a rocket into outer space.
He’s not alone – he will be joined by his brother Mark on the first crewed space flight from his rocket company Blue Origin in July. One other lucky (rich) person will be able to join them, with a seat being auctioned off – currently still up for grabs. Don’t rush over to bid yet, the current highest bid for a seat on the space flight is $US2.8 million ($3.6 million).
Will it be available on Amazon?– Owen Davies
Is travelling into space just something you do when you become a billionaire? Bezos, Elon Musk and Richard Branson have all been investing their pennies into their own rocket companies – is there something we don’t know? They have all been vying to be the first billionaire in space, but it seems Bezos has pipped them at the post and will be #1.
The Blue Origin spacecraft, which is set to carry Mr Bezos and others, has undergone 15 test flights, none of which had any passengers onboard.
