By now we all would have been very familiar with the name Jeff Bezos who is the founder of Amazon. Do you know that he is the 2nd richest person in the world just behind Bill Gates?
What is more fascinating is his interest towards innovation. How many of you know that he is associated with Blue Origin, a company which is planning in line with Virgin Galactic to send people for Space Tourism? As we know that this is not a joke and would require significant amount of investment.
How does Jeff Bezos fund his dream project?
The answer is here. Mr Bezos sells his Amazon stock worth USD 1 Billion every year to fund the project. Considering his total net worth of USD 73 Billion, this is just a minuscule amount.
This is how the capsule of Blue Origin would look like. This capsule can send 6 travellers/passengers at a time the Space.
