Jeff Bezos' company will charge $200000 for a flight to space

The entire mission took approximately 11 minutes to unfold, while over 20,000 people tuned into Blue Origin's YouTube live stream to watch the test, with the capsule hitting a maximum speed of 2,236 miles per hour and height of 389,846 feet. Together with his executives, they announced their plans for conducting test flights with passengers on the company's New Shepard. Maximum ascent velocity was listed at 2,236 miles per hour.

Today's test was meant to assess the crew capsule's emergency abort procedures at high altitude and saw both rocket and spacecraft touch down without any incident, after the two separated about two minutes and 40 seconds after the rocket launch. The company has not said what the price of the tickets would be.

But Virgin Galactic, founded by British billionaire Richard Branson, is also racing to be the first - with both companies using radically different technology.

According to a representative of Blue Origin, the flight will take place in a capsule on Board which will be another 5 people. It was the eighth time the company successfully tested the system for future passenger flights. The spacecraft had a passenger aboard as well, albeit a non-living one: "Mannequin Skywalker" is a test dummy outfitted with sensors to relay information back to the Blue Origin science team.

Blue Origin views suborbital space tourism as a stepping-stone to much bigger things. It was flown once before on Blue Origin in April 2018.

At this altitude, the sky looks dark and the curvature of the earth can be seen clearly. This time, the company continued work toward increasing the robustness of WIFI in space with an antenna created to withstand the rigors of a rocket demonstration. His direct competitor, Elon Musk, says Bezos, will be able to offer so low price for flights. "Anyone predicting dates is guessing".
