Another billionaire goes to space.
Jeff Bezos took a small crew with him on his Blue Origin rocket on an 11-minute ride Tuesday morning.
After landing safely, the mogul said jubilantly:
“This is a tiny little step of what Blue Origin is going to do. What we’re really trying to do is build reusable space vehicles. It’s the only way to build a road to space, and we need to build a road to space so that our children can build the future. If you want to be a space entrepreneur today, you have to do everything from the beginning. There’s no real infrastructure that’s at an affordable cost. So that’s what we have to do, is build that kind of infrastructure and then future generations will get to rest on top of it,” Bezos added
