Jeff Bezos Is Going To Space With His Brother

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is set to make a trip to space in the company of his brother courtesy of his company Blue Origin's first human flight there.

The 67-year-old billionaire said that space flight is something he has always wanted to do his whole life. Now he will see his dream come true, with brother Mark Bezos tagging along for the ride.

Jeff Bezos' company Blue Origin is said to be auctioning off a seat in the capsule for anyone who would love to join the two of them on the space trip.

BBC reports that bidding for a seat on the flight reached $2.8 million after Bezos made known his intention to fly to space. The auction will come to an end on June 12, 2021.

Blue Origin's website says that the company plans to launch its passengers over 100km (62 miles) above the surface of the earth, giving them the opportunity to experience microgravity.
