Petitions to Keep Jeff Bezos in Space After Blue Origins Launch Exceed 100,000 Signatures
Newsweek–Petitions calling on Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to stay in space once he gets there have been signed more than 100,000 times since they were launched two weeks ago.
Bezos is a multi-billionaire and world’s richest person with a net worth of around $200bn, according to Forbes. He is due to travel to space on July 20 with Blue Origin, the private rocket company he founded.
Next month’s launch is purely for pleasure, marking the growth of the nascent space tourism industry.
