Bezos Jumps on Rocket Bandwagon
Everybody’s going to space these days. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is just the latest billionaire to explore the commercial space trade, with his company Blue Origin announcing that it’ll start test flights for commercial passenger rockets sometime in 2015. Bezos is planning space trips to ferry scientific equipment to astronauts, but he’ll also be zooming paying customers, three passengers at a time, in a small ship 62 miles above the earth. Tickets aren’t on sale yet, but you can bet the prices will be sky-high.
