Speaking Wednesday at the 33rd Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Bezos vowed to lower the cost of space travel and start taking customers to space by next year.The entrepreneur did not say how much a ticket would cost, as he showed off the New Shepard rocket and a mock-up of the large-windowed capsule that tourists will one day ride to suborbital space—just past the Karman Line some 62 miles (100 kilometers) above Earth—and back.Nor did he say how much of h

Jeff Bezos' rocket company plans to charge passengers about $200,000 to $300,000 for its first trips into space next year, two people familiar with its plans told Reuters.Potential customers and the aerospace industry have been eager to learn the cost of a ticket on Blue Origin's New Shepard space vehicle, to find out if it is affordable and whether the company can generate enough demand to make a profit on space tourism.Executives at the company, started by Amazon.com Inc founder Bezos in 2000, told a business conference last month they planned test flights with passengers on the New Shepard soon, and to start selling tickets next year.The company, based about 32 kilometers  south of Seattle, has made public the general design of the vehicle - comprising a launch rocket and detachable pas

jeff bezos pumps his personal fortune into blue origin

Bezos owns Blue Origin, which is currently developing a reusable rocket that could take passengers on commercial suborbital space flights from as early as next year. "My business model right now for Blue Origin is I sell about a billion a year of Amazon stock and I use it to fund Blue Origin," Bezos said at the Space Symposium conference in Colorado on Wednesday. "So the business model for Blue Origin is very robust."Last week, the spaceflight company released the first interior photos of its New Shepard capsule, revealing a spacious cabin with enormous windows. As passengers will be asked to hand over as much as $300,000 for a ticket to space, Bezos and co. believe comfortable recliners -- at least in comparison to SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule -- and expansive views will make the cost wor

jeff bezos sells amazon stock to invest in blue origin

Jeff Bezos at the unveiling of the Blue Origin New Shepard system during the Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on April 5, 2017.  Matthew Staver—Bloomberg/Getty Images(COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.) - Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos said on Wednesday he is selling about $1 billion worth of the internet retailer's stock annually to fund his Blue Origin rocket company, which aims to launch paying passengers on 11-minute space rides starting next year.Blue Origin had hoped to begin test flights with company pilots and engineers in 2017, but that probably will not happen until next year, Bezos told reporters at the annual U.S. Space Symposium in Colorado Springs.“My business model right now … for Blue Origin is I sell about $1 billion of Amazon stock a year and I use it to invest in Blue

'mannequin skywalker' rides blue origin's new crew capsule

Blue Origin's 'Mannequin Skywalker' has rocketed almost all the way to space, just in time for the new Star Wars movie.
The aerospace company led by Amazon's Jeff Bezos launched its New Shepard rocket Tuesday from West Texas for the seventh time. It marked the first flight, though, of the latest version of Blue Origin's crew capsule, featuring big windows for future space tourists.An instrumented test dummy was aboard, named Mannequin Skywalker. Bezos says it had "a great ride."The New Shepard rocket, named after the first American in space, Alan Shepard, landed back on the ground following the 10-minute suborbital flight. The capsule reached a peak altitude of 99.39 kilometers above sea level or 61.7 miles, just shy of the true start of space.

jeff bezos' blue origins to pay the way for amazon in space

Elon Musk can have his Mars. Jeff Bezos wants the Moon instead. Actually he wants the moon and everything that will go back and forth in between. At the International Space Development Conference last Friday, the Amazon CEO laid out his grand vision for all his space travel investments. And while part of it includes setting up lunar settlements, his ultimate, and almost unspoken, goal is to reduce the cost of carrying cargo to and from Earth, the Moon, and other space stations. In other words, Amazon Space Prime.Musk’s SpaceX and Bezos’ Blue Origin have been racing each other in the space travel industry. But while SpaceX’s ambitions are more grandiose, Blue Origin’s plans strike closer to home, literally and figuratively. It’s reusable rockets, for one, have only flown into sub-orbital sp

presstv-new zealand launches into space with 3d-printed rocket

A space company has launched the maiden flight of its battery-powered 3D printed rocket in New Zealand.The successful launch of the low cost rocket is an important step to bring down financial and logistical barriers. The California-based firm had spent the past four years preparing for the test launch. New Zealand has recently devised new rocket regulations and set up a space agency hoping to become a low-cost space hub. The country is also well-positioned to send satellites bound for a north-to-south orbit around the poles.

here’s why the imminent test of jeff bezos’ be-4 rocket engine is a huge deal

Enlarge/ Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos has an important engine test coming up soon.Win McNamee/Getty ImagesShare this storyKey Blue Origin officials have begun to drop hints about the imminent hot-fire test of the company's new rocket engine, the BE-4. Jeff Bezos recently said to expect a full-scale engine test "in the coming weeks." And last Wednesday the company's director of business development, Brett Alexander, said during a Center for Strategic and International Studies panel discussion the test "was coming soon."For many people, a rocket engine is just a rocket engine. But Blue Origin's new engine is a big deal for a number of reasons, not the least of which is its 550,000 pounds of thrust at sea level, more powerful than a space shuttle main engine, which had 418,000 pounds of thr

blue origin will launch this weekend with livestream

We haven’t heard much in the last several months from Blue Origin, the private aerospace company owned by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, but that’s finally going to change this weekend. After a successful test flight of its Crew Capsule 2.0 back in December, Blue Origin will conduct another test launch of its New Shepard rocket this weekend, making it the eighth overall and the first of 2018. Even better is that the whole thing will be watchable via livestream.Bezos revealed on Twitter that the target launch window starts this Sunday at 9:30am Eastern. The New Shepard reusable rocket will launch from Blue Origin’s test facility in Texas, with Bezos adding that details for the livestream will also be shared. The Blue Origin flight in late December saw the company testing its Crew Capsule 2.0, a pod d

jeff bezos’ rocket company has its first asian customer

mu Space is a very new company, established just last month, and their aim is to provide reliable satellite broadband and mobile for Thailand's businesses. It has their own interest in space travel, though. Its "Everyone Project" is a plan to make space tourism a reality in Asia, though there's scant information about it on the company's website.Compared to rival SpaceX, Blue Origin's progress might appear slow, but there's a lot going on behind the scenes. Blue Origin hasn't had a NASA contract to help speed their development, after all. Additionally, its sights had previously been set squarely on crewed launches; it plans to fly astronauts on their New Shepard launch vehicle by early 2018. It has also been manufacturing rocket parts for other companies.Last year, Bezos announced that Blu

spacex successfully relaunched a falcon 9 rocket

Stage 1 of the Falcon 9 rocket that launched today was first used to boost a Dragon vehicle on a supply run to the International Space Station. The same rocket was also the first to successfully land on SpaceX's drone barge. The first stage represents about 80 percent of the cost of a rocket launch, so when Musk describes the next era in space exploration, he is referring to the new opportunities that will come with the significant cost savings.Meanwhile, the SES-10 vehicle that topped today's rocket launch will go on to a geostationary orbit where it will deliver direct-to-home broadcasting, broadband and mobile services in Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and South America.

why is jeff bezos building rocket engines in alabama? he’s playing to win

Richard Shelby, right, welcomes Blue Origin President Rob Meyerson to Huntsville, Alabama, this week.Huntsville/Madison County ChamberShare this storyThis week the governor of Alabama announced that Blue Origin would build a factory in Huntsville, Alabama, for its new BE-4 rocket engine. "I must commend founder Jeff Bezos and company President Robert Meyerson for their vision to create this innovative company, and for choosing to make Alabama its home sweet home," said Gov. Kay Ivey.The decision has been widely hailed as largely a political one—Alabama has considerable influence in the US Congress over space policy, and, with its decision to build there, Blue Origin was aligning part of its future with the southern state—but that does not appear to be the sole rationale.

But during the last six months, Blue Origin, the semi-secretive rocket company founded by Jeff Bezos, has not flown any new vehicles. So what has it been up to?This week, the company brought the rocket that made those five flights to the Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, Colorado and displayed it along with a mockup of the spacecraft that will eventually begin carrying customers on 11-minute suborbital flights.

Enlarge/ Blue Origin's concept art for a New Glenn rocket launch ascending to orbit.Blue OriginShare this storyOver the last several months Blue Origin has begun to reveal details about plans to develop a large orbital rocket called New Glenn. The 82-meter-tall booster will have the capacity to lift 45 tons to low Earth orbit and an impressive 13 tons to geostationary transfer orbit. The company plans for the technology to be fully reusable.The New Glenn rocket is so big it will be too large to produce at the company's existing facilities in Kent, Washington. So Blue Origin intends to build the BE-4 rocket engine in Huntsville, Alabama and assemble the New Glenn booster in Florida. The company has evidently made substantial progress on the new rocket facility in Florida, as Jeff Bezos show

nasa is trying to make the space launch system rocket more affordable

Enlarge/ Artist concept of the Space Launch System.NASA/MSFCShare this storyNASA has said that one of the strengths of its Space Launch System rocket is that the massive booster, in part, uses legacy hardware. These proven technologies, such as the space shuttle's main engines and the side-mounted rocket boosters, provide the agency with confidence that when it finally flies, the SLS will be reliable.However, one problem with legacy hardware, built by traditional contractors such as Orbital ATK and Aerojet Rocketdyne, is that it's expensive. And while NASA has not released per-flight estimates of the expendable SLS rocket's cost, conservative estimates peg it at $1.5 to $2.5 billion per launch. The cost is so high that it effectively precludes more than one to two SLS launches per year.The

blue origin tests crew capsule 2.0 with 'biggest windows in space'

Jeff Bezos' rocket company isn't quite ready for space tourism, but today's test flight gets it a bit closer. Bezos tweeted that for the first time, Blue Origin has tested version 2.0 of its Crew Capsule, and while he didn't mention how luxurious the test unit is, it does feature "the largest windows in space." Measuring at 2.4 feet wide and 3.6 feet high, they gave the test dummy a great view from 322,405 feet above ground level.

thai company mu space can now operate satellites

We previously covered mu Space because it was the third company (and first Asia-Pacific company) to book a slot on Blue Origin's New Glenn rocket. Blue Origin is Jeff Bezos' rocket company, and the New Glenn is still under development. This license means that mu Space has crossed another regulatory hurdle in its quest to get the brand new company up and running.Only 12 percent of Thailand's population has access to broadband internet, and those people are typically centered in space. mu Space hopes to fill in the gaps by providing an alternative in rural areas, where traditional telecom companies haven't bothered to build infrastructure. The company also hopes to provide space tourism to Asian customers within the next 10 years.

jeff bezos outlines blue origin's space colony ambitions

The Moon is convenient for a colony, Bezos said, noting that it's relatively close by and holds water that could be turned into air and rocket propellant.Bezos is also thinking a bit... further. He foresaw it becoming "easier" to move much of Earth's heavy industry to space within decades, and suggested that some people might work in hollowed asteroids. Earth might be reserved for "residential and light industrial" purposes. Blue Origin won't necessarily play a part in that. In fact, Bezos is eager to have "other people" to handle tasks like Moon colonization. The private spaceflight firm is mainly there to get the ball rolling.The focus stands in stark contrast to Elon Musk's vision for SpaceX. His company is ultimately focused on colonizing Mars, and it's building vessels like the BFR wi

blue origin's new shepard wins prestigious aeronautics award

According to the National Aeronautic Association (NAA), Blue Origin won the award "for successfully demonstrating rocket booster reusability with the New Shepard human spaceflight vehicle through five successful test flights of a single booster and engine, all of which performed powered vertical landings on Earth."The Jeff Bezos-owned private space corporation conducted five test flights using New Shepard 2 in 2015 and 2016, successfully relanding the rocket each time. NAA Chairman Jim Albaugh praises the company for "developing the first new large liquid hydrogen rocket engine in almost 20 years and demonstrating repeatable vertical takeoffs and landings makes the long sought after goal of low cost reusable rockets and access to space a reality."Blue Origin hasn't been resting on its laur

japan’s first private rocket launch is a partial success

Unfortunately, the rocket failed to reach its target altitude of 100 km. Just over a minute into launch, the ground team lost communications with the rocket. This caused an early shutdown of the engine; estimates are that it only achieved an altitude of around 20 km.If successful, this would have been the first private rocket launched in Japan developed by a Japanese company. The rocket is about 10 meters high, weighting around a ton. The cost of the launch was jut 50 million yen ($440,000). JAXA has led the country's space efforts until now; their rocket launches cost somewhere between 200 million and 300 million yen ($1.8–$2.7 million).The rocket's partial failure is certainly a disappointment for Momo, but at this stage of development, any data is useful.

buzz aldrin fundraises to send people to space at mars gala

(CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.) — Forty-eight years after he landed on the moon, Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin on Saturday rolled out a red carpet for the red planet at a star-studded gala at the Kennedy Space Center.Aldrin, 87, commemorated the upcoming anniversary of the 1969 mission to the moon under a historic Saturn V rocket and raised more than $190,000 for his nonprofit space education foundation, ShareSpace Foundation. Aldrin believes people will be able to land on Mars by 2040, a goal that NASA shares. The space agency is developing the Space Launch System and the Orion spacecraft to send Americans to deep space.Apollo astronauts Walt Cunningham, Michael Collins and Harrison "Jack" Schmitt joined Aldrin, one of 12 people to walk on the moon, at the sold-out fundraiser."I like to think of
