Al Jazeera, 08 Jun 2021
The world's richest man, Jeff Bezos, has announced he is heading into space next month on the first crewed flight launched by his rocket firm, Blue Origin.
The Amazon founder and his younger brother Mark will join whoever wins a charity auction for a seat on the New Shephard spacecraft, on the 20th of July.
If all goes well, the 11-minute flight will see the passengers reach the edge of space before returning to Earth.
