Things are going to change

Things are going to change

This year you must stay, you deserve it.

When you think things go wrong

When you think things go wrong

There is always someone who will give you a hand.

Where are you going tonight?

Where are you going tonight?

Some day we'll go back there, our secret place.

Do you remember those moments?

Do you remember those moments?

This is going to get sweet!

I really feel younger.

I really feel younger.

Maybe I'll give it a little taste.

Oh pretty mama, you're the best!

Oh pretty mama, you're the best!

I do not think I'll ever forget it, thanks.

I'm pretty sure if given an opportunity, no one in this world would ever pass up the chance to go to space, no one.

But, space exploration is not that much of a reality yet, and it just reminds me of this one Tumblr post.

Very relatable, of course.

But, space travel might be possible soon, and when I say soon, I mean in just a couple of years. And, of course, the world's richest man will probably make it happen.

Reportedly, Jeff Bezos' rocket company Blue Origin, plans to start charging interested passengers for its first trips into space next year and the price will be about $200,000 to $300,000, or Rs. 1.36 crore to 2.05 crore. So cheap, right? That's such a bargain, I'm so impressed by Jeff.

Okay, all jokes aside, space travel is such a cool thing, so obviously you'll have to pay a lot, A LOT, for it. People who were waiting for the cost of a ticket – and who can actually afford it – on Blue Origin's New Shepard space vehicle finally have some answers through two anonymous sources, who are employees of Blue Origin.

Last month, executives of the company shared at a business conference that they are planning test flights with passengers on the New Shepard soon, and then will start selling the tickets next year.

According to Reuters, the New Shepard is “designed to autonomously fly six passengers more than 62 miles (100 km) above Earth into suborbital space, high enough to experience a few minutes of weightlessness and see the curvature of the planet before the pressurized capsule returns to earth under parachutes.”

Apparently, Blue Origin has already completed eight test flights on New Shepard of the vertical take-off and landing, but none of them had any passengers aboard. But, two of the tests did have a test dummy named “Mannequin Skywalker.” Tbh, I prefer the name, Starman.

The only thing left to see now, is who will win the race for space travel – Elon Musk, Richard Branson or Jeff Bezos.
