Jeff Bezos will join passengers launching into space on Blue Origin's 1st crewed flight

Amazon.com and Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos will fly on the first crewed flight of the New Shepard suborbital vehicle, the billionaire announced on Instagram on Monday (June 7).

The flight is scheduled for July 20, the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. The New Shepard capsule, which operates autonomously and does not need a pilot, will launch from Blue Origin's West Texas facility. The flight will last approximately 11 minutes.

Bezos' brother, Mark, will join the crew as well, the Instagram post noted. "Ever since I was five years old, I’ve dreamed of traveling to space," Bezos wrote. "On July 20th, I will take that journey with my brother. The greatest adventure, with my best friend."
