Someone Paid $28million To Fly To Space With Jeff Bezos....
Another vacation video, discussing New Shepard's first flight, and the mysterious bidder who's paying $28million to fly on it next to Blue Origin Founder Jeff Bezos. And while we're talking about money for space, let's try and get a handle for how the US government is deciding to fund NASA, The Artemis Program and specifically the Human Landing System.
Not only has the Biden Administration requested a lot of funding for NASA, but Senators have tried to force NASA to take on an extra HLS option and have passed a bill to force this to happen. Meanwhile Bill Nelson is trying to convince Congress that the Infrastructure bill should include money for NASA facilities too.
Replay - New Shepard First Seat Auction
On Saturday, June 12, Blue Origin concluded the online auction for the very first seat on New Shepard with a winning bid of $28 million. Nearly 7,600 people registered to bid from 159 countries. The winning bidder will fly to space on New Shepard’s first human flight on July 20, and will join Blue Origin founder, Jeff Bezos, and his brother, Mark. The winning bid amount will be donated to Blue Origin’s foundation, Club for the Future, whose mission is to inspire future generations to pursue careers in STEM and to help invent the future of life in space.

Virgin Galactic Test Flight Reaches Space From New Mexico
Virgin Galactic on Saturday made its first rocket-powered flight from New Mexico to the fringes of space in a manned shuttle, as the company moves toward offering tourist flights to the edge of the Earth's atmosphere. The company announced the firing of VSS Unity's rocket motor to hurtle the ship and two pilots toward space. A live feed by NASASpaceFlight.com showed the rocket ship accelerating upward, estimated a top altitude of at least 50 miles and confirmed a landing later via radar. Virgin Galactic founder Sir Richard Branson confirmed in a Twitter post that the two pilots and a research payload belonging to NASA had reached space. Virgin Galactic is aiming for commercial operations to begin next year following testing and a few months of downtime for maintenance and other upgrades.

Virgin Galactic completes 1st spaceflight in over 2 years, inching closer to commercial service
Virgin Galactic's space plane completed its first spaceflight after a two-year hiatus, inching the company ever closer to being able to enter commercial service. The Unity vehicle, with pilots Dave Mackay and CJ Sturckow behind the controls, flew to a height of 89 kilometres — or more than 291,000 feet — on Saturday after taking off for the very first time from Spaceport America, N.M. The craft was carried to an altitude of 44,000 feet by a carrier aircraft called VMS Eve, which then released the Unity. Firing its rocket engine accelerated it to more than three times the speed of sound. It performed a backflip in microgravity at the edge of space before returning through the atmosphere in a glide, landing back on the runway where it first took off.

Space Vacation: Visions, Possibilities and Problems I Special Episode.
Space is full of dreams and visions. From a hotel in space to a sporting event in the infinite expanse or a greenhouse on the moon.The ideas are limitless and the possibilities in space are inexhaustible. The ideas of the visionaries for the use of space could not be more creative. But how to solve the space-time problem, if one should be able to fly to Mars or even to another galaxy? What is not yet possible today may soon become reality in the eyes of the visionaries. #space #spacevacation #visions ---- This channel offers you full episodes of high quality documentaries.

Space Tourism Reborn : Twelve People Will Fly To Space In The Next 12 Months!
There were 8 flights to the ISS between 2001 and 2009 carrying private spaceflight participants, or, Space Tourists. Nobody has flown since then except for a couple of suborbital hops on Virgin Galactic. Now the prospect of space tourism is back in force with 4 flights scheduled to orbit and more on the horizon carrying a dozen participants to one of the most exclusive destinations.
Why Space May Be Your Next Vacation
Technology around space travel is accelerating at a rapid pace. As a result, we may soon see a future where one doesn't need to be an astronaut to travel the stars. But there's a long line of legal and safety logistics to be met before we can all start booking our personal space voyages. #Space #Accelerate #BloombergQuicktake --------

Watch Blue Origin test the Crew Capsule on their New Shepard Rocket!
Blue Origin will be conducting the 14th flight of its New Shepard launch vehicle on the NS-14 mission. Blue Origin eventually aims to enable people (with a good amount of money) to purchase a ticket on a suborbital flight. This will be the inaugural flight of the fourth New Shepard booster – the very rocket that will soon carry humans. New Shepard only has the ability to launch on a suborbital trajectory with an apogee of 119 km (74 miles) – their record. Want to learn more?!?

How Space Tourism Will Work
Since our primitive forebears first gazed up into the twinkling night sky, human beings have dreamed of what it might be like to move freely among the stars. To be fair, we’ve already made great strides in that direction – progressing, in a few short generations, from rickety semi-powered flights, to those famous dusty footprints left on the moon, and even robotic tyre tracks on the surface Mars. But for a growing number of visionary scientists and engineers working today, these almighty leaps don’t cut it any more. Our greatest minds are engaged in a colossal struggle, to slip the surly bonds of earth and realise our species’ destiny as a spacefaring civilisation. So today we ask the question – will space travelling ever be possible?
Why hasn't space tourism taken off?
Listening to Richard Branson over the past 20 years, you'd be forgiven for assuming that space was by now being frequented by lots of tourists. However, despite the Virgin Galactic chief's optimism, the space tourism industry has yet to take off. Up to now there have been only seven self-funded citizens in space. And with billionaires such as Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk in the space race, why are there still no tourists in space?

Why SpaceX, Virgin, & Blue Origin Are Betting On Space Tourism
Space tourism has been, almost, nonexistent in the past, but Virgin Galactic, SpaceX and Blue Origin are looking to change that. Still, accessibility to space tourism remains limited to the richest of the rich, with ticket prices ranging from hundreds of thousands of dollars to millions. Development of these space tourism programs is costing these companies billions and each has a different reason for pursuing this, as of yet, unproven market. » Subscribe to CNBC: https://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC

Be one of the first 200 to sign up at http://www.brilliant.org/primalspace and get 20% off your annual subscription! Since the beginning of spaceflight just 560 people have been into space, most of them being trained astronauts that spent years preparing for their flights. But when will the rest of us get a chance to visit space and what will we do when we get there? This video looks at the private astronauts that have paid to go into space and how reusable rockets could help to kickstart the space tourism industry.
