After a brief space flight by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, his space company Blue Origin has announced at least two aircraft this year. “The demand is very high,” the 57-year-old said after landing at a news conference on Tuesday. “We are approaching 100 million million in ticket sales.” After two flights later this year, you should see how things are going next year.
He will fly back into space immediately, according to Forbes magazine. Bezos joked, “Sure! How soon can we fill it?”
Ten days ago, another billionaire, Richard Branson, tested his own spacecraft. Branson hopes to get into the space tourism business. Critics accuse millionaires of wasting a lot of money regardless of the weather, often without scientific research interests.
For example, David Beasley, chairman of the United Nations (UN) World Food Program, congratulated Bezos on his journey to the universe – but recalled him via Twitter to stand up for the hungry people on Earth. “As you can see from space, Earth is a very special place. 41 million people are on the brink of famine. I need your help. We need your help.”
