    Jeff Bezos Blue Origin want to set 2 new space travel record

    Jeff Bezos and Blue Origin is all set to take off, amidst tight cordon off, with people having no access to watch them except on a webcast. Jeff Bezos follows Richard Branson this month to travel to the space, and he’ll do so aboard a rocket built by a company, which will be on a auto pilot mode.

    The founder and past chief of Amazon, is scheduled to lift off early Tuesday with three crewmates on the maiden flight of Blue Origin’s New Shepard fully automated launch vehicle.

    The Bezos flight will also set 2 new records – One it be fully automated vehicle without any pilot and it will roughly travel 62 miles above the Earth breaking Branson recent space voyage which travelled 50 miles.

    Riding with Bezos on the planned 11-minute flight will be his brother, Mark Bezos, as well as the oldest and youngest people ever to fly into space – 82-year-old pioneering female aviator Wally Funk and Oliver Daemen, an 18-year-old physics student.

    Daemen, whose seat was paid for by his father Joes, the CEO of Somerset Capital Partners, was put on the crew after the winner of an anonymous $28 million auction for the flight had to postpone due to a scheduling conflict.

    The date of July 20 for the inaugural flight is significant – it’s the same day in 1969 that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin aboard Apollo 11’s Eagle became the first humans to land on the moon.

    The flight according to reports will take the crew past the Kármán Line, the internationally recognized boundary of space, at nearly 330,000 feet, or roughly 62 miles above the Earth. This feat will give Bezos and Blue Origin will beat the journey of Virgin Galactic’s Richard Branson, whose flight earlier this month aboard Galactic Unity 22 hit a peak altitude of around 282,000 feet, surpassing NASA’s designated Earth-Space boundary of 50 miles, but falling well short of the Kármán Line.
