Have you ever wanted to visit space? Well, billionaire Jeff Bezos is making it possible, for a hefty price.
Blue Origin, Bezos’ rocket company, will begin to sell tickets for sightseeing space visits Wednesday.
At last check, $200,000 will buy you a seat on the New Shepard spacecraft, marking a big step not just for mankind, but for private commercial space travel.
According to Blue Origin’s website, 60-foot-tall rocket will hold enough space for you and five of your closest friends. The rocket will travel faster than Mach 3 speeds, it will cross the Karman line, then the trip will end with a gentle landing in the West Texas desert.
