Jeff Bezos was once known for books, when Amazon was the world’s largest online book store. That was in 1994.
He had been recently investing in robotics, and also acquired Whole Foods. But flying under the radar has been his space company, Blue Origin, building and testing rockets. It is what they call a rocket system, with a reusable, stage-one booster. It can take up to 100,000 pounds into space. This Apollo-sized rocket (much taller the Falcon rockets from SpaceX) is one of the few contenders in the space tourism business. Possibly a moon landing soon!
It may be a space race, but Bezos is taking it slow for now, to get it right.
