The world’s richest man and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has achieved a long-held dream of flying into space while officially launching his space tourism project.
He and three crew members successfully completed a suborbital flight in his company’s Blue Origin’s New Shepard vehicle.
The 10-minute trip crossed the 100-kilometre (62-mile) mark – which marks the outer edge of space.
Fellow billionaire Richard Branson made a similar trip nine days earlier but only reached its edge.

Al Jazeera’s Rob Reynolds reports from Texas, the US.

Its so sad and shameful that he spent $$$millions since 2000 for just a 3mins weightless space flight when he could have achieve far more within that same period with the same amount of money. e.g a proper schuttle that would have gone full orbit around the earth…

nijuuichi says:

this trip was sponsored by all the underpaid and exploited amazon worker

the money would've been better spent feeding the hungry.
