Jeff Bezos Space Travel Company: Blue Origin has announced to take an 18-year-old boy and an 82-year-old woman associated with the aviation field into space. Blue Origin said on Thursday that 18-year-old Oliver Daeman from the Netherlands would be the first customer to pay for space, but did not specify the price of the ticket. Damon will be the youngest person to go to space. “I’m so excited to experience zero gravity and see Earth from above,” Damon said in a video posted by Netherlands-based broadcaster RTL.
Valley Funk (82) will also join the journey. Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket will take four people to space from West Texas on July 20 (Jeff Bezos Space Travel Details). Amazon founder Jeff Bezos will also be the second person to go to space with his rocket. Nine days before him, Richard Branson of Virgin Galactic has returned after traveling to space. Brenson went on a spacewalk with six company personnel from his Virgin Galactic company’s spacecraft. Sirisha Bandla of Indian origin was also included in these six people.
The race to go to space among billionaires
Bezos and Branson were competing for a long time about who would go to space first. When Bezos announced that he was going on a space walk on July 20, Branson said a few hours later that he was going to space on July 11 (Jeff Bezos Space Travel News). The aim of both the billionaires is to make common people travel to space in future. This is the reason that there was a competition for their lives earlier, in which Branson went ahead.
CEO father buys seat for Damon
According to the report of CNN, this seat for Damon has been bought by his father (Jeff Bezos Space Travel Date). Joe is the CEO of an investment company called Somerset Capital Partners. If Damon travels to space, he will be the youngest person in the world to do so. Interestingly, if Wally Funk, who is going on a journey with them, completes the journey, then she will be the oldest person in the world to do so. About 60 years ago, Funk was trained for NASA’s Mercury 13 mission, but later this mission was canceled.
