Aerospace company Jeff Bezos is looking forward to July 20 for the first small-scale spacecraft on its New Shepard rocket, a crucial moment in the race to launch a new era of private space exploration.
Blue Origin, billionaire Jeff Bezos’s space firm, has revealed that those who want to offer a seat for New Shepard’s first flight are now $ 2.4m while the second phase of his market continues.
The company said it had received more than 5,200 bettors from 136 countries at the end of the year, but did not disclose the exact number of bidders when the round was published.
The second tour began with an order for the first $ 1.4m, according to the Blue Origin page.
The work will continue until June 10 and conclude with live sales on June 12th.
The company is following July 20 on the first tour of a small cottage on its way, a crucial moment in the race for a new era of secret travel.
The New Shepard rocket-and-capsule combo is designed to automatically carry six people more than 100km (62 miles) above the Earth to a lesser extent.
The Reuters news agency reported in 2018 that Blue Origin was planning to reimburse the riders for about $ 200,000 on the trip, based on a review of Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic Holdings Inc and other plans, although his views may change.
The first drivers
Five of the six seats on the first trip will be filled by astronomers Blue Origin preparing to name another time. Sixth seat goes to the market winner – if they meet the requirements, then.
According to good printing, a successful astronaut should weigh between 50kg (110 pounds) and 101kg (223 pounds) and should be between 1.5 meters (5 feet) and 1.9 meters (6 feet 4 inches) tall.
Passengers will also have to withstand up to 3gs for a few minutes during the climb (or up to three times their weight), as well as six and a half their weight (or 5.5gs) for a few seconds during the descent, the company said.
