Get ready for space tourism, says Jeff Bezos

Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon who recently turned the world’s richest man has something special for the human beings. He’s all set to surprise by offering a space travel through ‘Blue Origin’.

Though it’s not official, Jeff Bezos’ rocket company seems to be in plans to charge passengers about $200,000 to $300,000 for its first trips into space next year, two people familiar with its plans.
The New Shepard is designed to autonomously fly six passengers more than 62 miles (100 km) above Earth into suborbital space, high enough to experience a few minutes of weightlessness and see the curvature of the planet before the pressurized capsule returns to earth under parachutes.

The capsule features six observation windows Blue Origin says are nearly three times as tall as those on a Boeing Co 747 jetliner.

Blue Origin has completed eight test flights of the vertical take-off and landing New Shepard from its launch pad in Texas, but none with passengers aboard.
