Wowza I did not see this coming!!
A few months back it was announced that Jeff Bezos was resigning or stepping down from his position of CEO from Amazon.
Many wondered what he would do next, if anything and now we know.
Jeff Bezos is going to space and the launch is scheduled just 15 days after he will resign as CEO of Amazon!
News broke this morning that Jeff Bezos will be flying to space on the first crewed flight of the New Shepard, the rocket ship made by his space company, Blue Origin.
The flight is currently scheduled for July 20, 2021 just 15 days after he is set to resign as CEO of Amazon.
Blue Origin said Bezos’ younger brother, Mark Bezos, will also join the flight.
Ever since I was five years old, I’ve dreamed of traveling to space. On July 20th, I will take that journey with my brother. The greatest adventure, with my best friend. #GradatimFerociterJeff Bezos Instagram
If all goes well, Jeff Bezos will be the first billionaire that will fly to space in a rocket his own company has made.
Blue Origin’s flight crewed flight will see the company’s six-seater capsule and 59-foot rocket tear toward the edge of space on a 11-minute flight that’ll reach more than 60 miles above Earth.
I hope it ends up being everything Bezos wants.
