Jeff Bezos, the CEO of one of the largest multinational technology-based companies, Amazon, will be traveling to space after his retirement.

Jeff Bezos Accompanied By His Brother
The American businessman and investor took to the social media platform, Instagram, on the 7th of June to make the announcements. The photo he shared revealed him hugging another man whom he referred to as his brother. Jeff Bezos also shared his childhood dream through his caption. He stated that he had wanted to travel to space since he was a five-year-old child. The Amazon CEO stated that he would be taking up his journey on the 20th of July. He will be accompanied by his brother, Mark, who also happens to be his best friend.
The name of the rocket of the aerospace company is New Shepard. The most exciting thing about Jeff Bezos’s New Shepard of Jeff Bezos is the fact that it can be reused. The idea of making it reusable is to make space a little more accessible for the people. Reusable rockets will be cheaper for space travel. It is a pressurized capsule that has a place to fit a total of six passengers. There is no seat for any of the pilots.
Jeff Bezos has opened up the doorway for anybody to join them as they take the tour. The one way to go for it is by paying for it. The one who makes the highest bid will be the lucky one. As of now, the highest bid has reached 2.28 million USD. The fund collected from the bid will be given to the foundation of Blue Origin that helps youth by inspiring them to pursue the subject of STEM.
