Jeff Bezos really wants to make space tourism a thing. According to a report by Reuters, the Amazon CEO’s rocket company, Blue Origin, could begin shuttling humans into space as early as next year.
The cost of the trip? A mere $200,000 to $300,000 per ticket.
For the price of a decent house in most areas of the country, Bezos plans to propel wealthy adventurers more than 100 km (62 miles) into suborbital space in Blue Origin’s ‘New Shepard’ autonomous rocket.
