Jeff Bezos Will Fly Aboard Blue Origin뭩 First Human Trip to Space

Mr. Bezos and his brother, Mark, will be on board when his rocket company launches its first human spaceflight next month, shortly after he steps down as chief executive of Amazon.

In the battle of billionaires with rocket companies, Jeff Bezos will finally beat Elon Musk.

Mr. Bezos, the founder of Amazon, said on Monday that he would take a trip to space next month when Blue Origin, the rocket company he founded more than two decades ago, conducts its first human spaceflight.



밇ver since I was five years old, I뭭e dreamed of traveling to space, Mr. Bezos, 57, said on Instagram. He said his brother Mark would join him on the flight, allowing him to embark on 뱓he greatest adventure, with my best friend.

Mr. Bezos made the announcement in the middle of a busy year for human spaceflight. Blue Origin뭩 biggest competitors in private rocketry, SpaceX and Virgin Galactic, have both announced a number of trips to carry a variety of individuals on launches or flights high above the planet, but neither as yet plans a passenger of such a high profile.

Mr. Bezos predicted that he would be a new man after his journey to space: 밒t changes your relationship with this planet, with humanity, he said. 밒t뭩 one earth. I want to go on this flight because it뭩 the thing I뭭e wanted to do all my life.



The trip may bring some renewed attention to Blue Origin, which has taken a slower approach to the development of its vehicles than the other companies, and recently lost out to Mr. Musk뭩 company in a bid to build the next lander that would carry NASA astronauts back to the moon.




SpaceX has a couple of missions in the next 12 months that are to take private citizens to orbit. One is scheduled to launch in September and will carry Jared Isaacman, the billionaire founder of Shift4 Payments, and three other amateur astronauts, on a trip to orbit. A second, booked by the company Axiom Space, will carry three wealthy individuals and an astronaut working for the company to the International Space Station. Mr. Musk has said he would eventually want to go to Mars, but he has not announced any plans to go to space himself in the near future.

Richard Branson, another billionaire who founded Virgin Galactic, in 2004, has been anticipating for more than a decade a ride on Virgin뭩 long-delayed SpaceShipTwo suborbital space plane, which is a competitor of New Shepard. The company completed its latest test flight last month, and Mr. Branson may finally get his wish later this year.

Blue Origin뭩 achievements lag far behind those of SpaceX, Mr. Musk뭩 rocket company. SpaceX has been regularly launching its Falcon 9 rockets to orbit for more than a decade including taking NASA cargo and astronauts to the International Space Station. Axiom Space last week announced three additional flights to orbit using SpaceX뭩 Crew Dragon. SpaceX is also planning to fly Yusaku Maezwa, a billionaire who founded the online clothing company ZOZO in Japan, on a trip around the moon in its next-generation Starship spacecraft.



In April, SpaceX beat out Blue Origin and another company, Dynetics, to snag a NASA contract to build the lander that is to take astronauts back to the moon in a few years. (Both Blue Origin and Dynetics have protested the award.)

Blue Origin, by contrast, has so far only conducted a series of 15 uncrewed test fights of its much smaller New Shepard vehicle. New Shepard is designed to take six people on short suborbital flights rising above the 62-miles altitude generally regarded as the edge of space but then immediately coming back down instead of accelerating to the high velocities needed to enter orbit around Earth.

While New Shepard has yet to carry any passengers, it has been paid to fly science experiments for NASA and private scientists during test flights of the New Shepard spacecraft.

Mr. Bezos company announced last month that it was finally ready to put people on board for its next test flight, the 16th, on July 20, the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
