Jeff Bezos to be on first Blue Origin space flight next month

Размещено
 
Jeff Bezos said on Monday that he would be on board when his rocket company, Blue Origin, conducts its first human spaceflight next month. He said his brother Mark Bezos would join him on the flight. Blue Origin, the rocket company founded by Mr. Bezos in 2000, is also auctioning off a passenger seat on the New Shepard, a suborbital spacecraft that is set to take off on July 20. Bidding has reached almost $3 million with nearly 6,000 participants from 143 countries, the company said. (www.nytimes.com) Ещё...

I just don't get it, as a former shuttle engineer, why would anyone pay 3.2 million for 10 minutes? Its really not space..

This is just a sub-orbital hop. Really, why are Blue Origin so far behind SpaceX? They are now threatening the survival of SpaceX rival, ULA’, and the Vulcan rocket as Blue Origin can’t deliver engines.

Pitiful performance by Blue Origin.

Maybe they'll release a stack of Amazon drones, on cables, to lower the capsule back to Earth?!

Hope he and his brother have updated their wills, put their assets in a trust, and have good management in place to run their companies. Wonder if he'll marry his girlfriend before this flight? I look at all the training real astronauts get, and this epitomizes the fact that money can override common sense.

The first thing I thought was "think he'll be coming back?"

First thing I thought - if he crashes bitcoin is crashing with him.

Wonder if Melinda has signed up Bill Gates to join Jeff. Could solve those testy divorce matters.

We all get to participate virtually with Jeff in his space venture by making up the revenue shortfall that allows him to live the good life tax free.

Dr. Evil, I mean Bezos, will be petting a white cat on his lap as he goes up.

Wait a minute…does his ship resemble a huge penis? Pecker, Johnson, etc?

Better to keep J. Bezos in orbit permanently. Might crimp his company's big box warehouse operations which are a pestilence.

FINALLY a chance to rid the world of Dr. Evil, aka Jeff Bezos! Can someone alter the navigation system and send him to the Sun? ☀️
