Blue Origin, the rocket-making company of billionaire Jeff Bezos, has set a date for July 20 for its first mission to take people into space. According to the information posted on its website on Wednesday, the company plans to auction the seat on its New Speared Rocket and Capsule for the summer mission. The proceeds from the auction will be used to be donated to the Blue Origin Foundation, which promotes math and science education.
A seat will be reserved for the first flight for the winning bidder in a 5-week online option for the space mission of Blue Origin. Progress of this plan of Blue Origin is indicated. Although Bezos’ rocket-making company is yet to take people to space, Bezos hinted on social media after an April test flight that the work would be completed soon. This will set the market for tourism rides in space.
11 minute flight and 6 astronauts
Journey details of the first crew trip have not been revealed at the moment, but Blue Origin plans to carry 6 astronauts on 11-minute flights that will go to sub-orbital space at an altitude of 100 kilometers (62 mi). In this, passengers will get a chance to see the Earth from space. There will be 6 observation windows in the passenger capsule. These capsules will be about 3 times larger than the Boeing 747. A crew capsule will break apart during the flight and then land with a parachute from a reusable new speared rocket.
The experience of seeing the Earth from space will be fantastic
According to Blue Origin director Ariane Cornell, the experience of seeing the earth from space and from the space through the window of the new speared capsule would be awesome. Along with this, after this July flight, Blue Origin plans to do several space flights.
Let me tell you, American space flight company Virgin Galactic has about 600 customers, who have paid $ 250,000 to go to space in the future. The company stopped taking reservations at the end of 2018 but plans to resume at the end of this year. Officials have said that there is a possibility of raising prices for this in future.
