Amazon founder Bezos wants to go into space

Jeff Bezos (57) is not an astronaut. But he’s the richest person in the world. Therefore, he can afford a trip into space. “I’ve dreamed of traveling into space since I was five years old,” Bezos shared on Instagram. The billionaire is now taking part with his brother on the first manned flight of the company Blue Origin, which he founded in 2000.

It has not yet been decided who will accompany him next to his brother. Blue Origin recently started an auction. More than 5200 bidders from 136 countries applied for a place in the cockpit. The highest bid in the current second round is $ 2.8 million.
