Jeff Bezos teases with sneak peak of Blue Origin’s Space Tourism Capsule

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos offered a sneak peak to Blue Origin’s space tourism capsule and what passengers for space tourism can expect. The New Shepard spaceship is already on its nationwide tour and the design of capsule suggests that every seat will be a window seat. The New Shepard spaceship could take tourists for its first journey as early as next year. The spaceship will take tourists to the edge of space but Blue Origin has still not revealed the cost of ticket for this amazing journey.

Media reports suggest that travel on Blue Origin’s New Shepard spaceship could cost in low six figures. Many private companies are working on space technology but only SpaceX, Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin have displayed their advanced space technology.

In October 2016, Bezos informed that Blue Origin could test first human flights by the end of year 2017. A flight on New Shepard spaceship would last 11 minutes and will take passengers to suborbital altitudes.

In his latest email update, Bezos informed, "Our New Shepard flight-test program is focused on demonstrating the performance and robustness of the system. In parallel, we've been designing the capsule interior with an eye toward precision engineering, safety and comfort."

Virgin Galactic is already selling tickets for its space journey.

SpaceX will be launching its recycled Falcon 9 rocket this week. Last month, SpaceX informed that the company will send two tourists to the moon in 2018.
