Blue Origin Aerospace company Jeff Bezos (founder of Amazon) will sell tickets for space tourists from $ 200,000 to $ 300,000, Reuters reports citing informed sources. Tickets will be on sale next year.
The company has not yet commented on the leak. At the same time test flights with passengers on board New Shepard should be held already in the near future. Bezos himself told about it last month.
New Shepard will be able to lift six passengers to a height of 100 km above the Earth, to the boundary between the cosmos and the atmosphere. For a few minutes they will be able to feel the weightlessness, and also watch through the huge panoramic windows the curvature of the Earth.
