Commercial Spaceflight And The Dawning Age of NewSpace

Jeff Bezos says he’ll put people in space in two years

Blue Origin, a space company owned by the Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) CEO, has been working on how to send people into orbit for the past decade.

 

In November, Blue Origin beat rival SpaceX by successfully launching a rocket into outer space and then landing it upright upon its return to Earth. Blue Origin repeated the launch-and-return journey in January.

Now, Bezos said he’s almost ready to start sitting people on top of those rockets.
