Bezos to join Blue Origin's space flight on July 20

Blue Origin Federation LLC said on Monday that its founder Jeff Bezos and his brother will travel to space in the company's first human flight on July 20. The flight will also include the winner of an auction currently underway on Blue Origin's website. According to the aerospace firm, bidding has so far reached $2.8 million with nearly 6,000 participants from 143 countries.

"Ever since I was five years old, I’ve dreamed of traveling to space. On July 20th, I will take that journey with my brother. The greatest adventure, with my best friend," Bezos wrote on Instagram. Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket had its first sub-orbital spaceflight in 2015 as the company aimed to develop space tourism.
