Blue Origin To Bring Tourists Into Space Onboard Luxury Space Capsule In Two Years
Blue Origin wants to take people into space in style. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, owner of the space company, released images of its luxury space capsules that will carry tourists into space within the next couple of years. The concept images were shared via Listserv last Wednesday.
Bezos intimated that the company plans on bringing its first paying space tourists to the end of the earth's atmosphere within two years. The passengers will definitely have a grand time travelling through space inside a space capsule that was designed with "precision engineering, safety, and comfort" in mind. Bezos further described the capsule to have the "largest widows ever in space" as each of the six passengers gets his or her own window seat. The windows are not just there for the people inside to get a glimpse of the vast universe. It is also there to protect them. According to Newsweek, Blue Origin is working on making the windows capable of withstanding the "stresses of exiting and re-entering Earth's atmosphere" which has been described as a major challenge.
CNET reported that Blue Origin received the Robert J. Collier Trophy which is a distinction given by the National Aeronautic Association (NAA) every year to recognize the "greatest achievement in aeronautics or astronautics in America". Blue Origin won the award on Wednesday for "successfully demonstrating rocket booster reusability with the New Shepard human spaceflight vehicle through five successful test flights of a single booster and engine".
Blue Origin and Elon Musk's SpaceX venture are spearheading today's dream of sending civilians into space among other goals related to space exploration. Musk envisions a future wherein Earthlings have colonized Mars. SpaceX also succeeded in its launching its first reused rocket mission when it launched the SpaceX Falcon for a second time on Thursday.
