Jeff Bezos sets to space on Blue Origin’s first crewed launch


Jeff Bezos the world’s richest man and the CEO of Amazon has ventured into a ground breaking journey as he blasted into space today.

Jeff Bezos is now the first to hold the position of the world’s richest man title while not on the Earth.

His space company Blue Origin launched into spaceflight history on Tuesday 20th July, 2021, with Bezos riding their first crewed new shepard rocket, alongside both the oldest and youngest people to ever have flown in space.

The launch marks Blue Origin’s entry into the industry of private spaceflight, which already had the likes of Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic and Elon Musk’s SpaceX flourishing in it.
