Amateur explorers could soon be shot into space for just $200,000.
The rocket company started by Jeff Bezos founder of Amazon is going to start with the launching of their space vehicles charging about $200,000 to $300,000 for her first trips, according to Reuters.
Blue Origin, founded by Bezos in 2000, is planning to release their New Shepard vehicle in the cosmos next year. The company said that the test flights are starting soon.
The New Shepard — a rocket launch and a passenger capsule is designed to fly six people more than 62 miles above the Earth into suborbital space.
The suborbital atmosphere is high enough to experience a few minutes of weightlessness and see the curvature of the planet, for the pressure of the capsule back to earth under parachutes.
