Jeff Bezos, the founder of Blue Origin and the CEO of Amazon, always wanted to go to space and now he is going to fulfill his dream. Three more people will go to space with Jeff.
Last year, the world’s richest man and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced that the first crew of the first space company Blue Origin will go to space by flight. After this, one seat of this flight was auctioned this week and bids were made fiercely on it. Now Blue Origin has revealed that this seat was auctioned for $ 28 million i.e. about Rs 205 crore.
The person who won the seat in this auction will go to space on July 20 in the New Shepherd First Human Flight with Jeff Bezos. Jeff Bezos’s brother Mark will also be with these people. Blue Origin has informed that about 7600 people from 159 countries had bid for this seat. Along with this, the company also told that the money from this auction will be donated to Blue Origin’s foundation Club for the Future. The purpose of this foundation is to inspire the next generation to pursue a career in STEM and help them find life in space.
Blue Origin has not yet announced the name of this winner. However, it said the name of the winner would be released in the weeks following the conclusion of the auction. After this the fourth and final crew member will be announced. A total of four people will travel in this space craft, including Jeff Bezos and his brother.
Bezos said last week that he wanted to go on this flight because he had wanted to do something like this in his entire life. ‘Looking at Earth from space changes you, it changes your relationship with this planet to humanity. I want to board this flight because it is something that I always wanted to do in my life. It’s an adventure and a big deal for me.
Let us tell you that the New Shepard capsule is fully automatic and does not require a pilot. It is designed in such a way that if there is an emergency, the capsule will be separated from the rocket midway and passengers will be away from that rocket.
Along with this, it has been made in such a way that even if the parachute does not open, it will reach the earth without any trouble.
