Blue Origin’s New Shepard is a cutting-edge reusable suborbital rocket system, designed to take astronauts and research payloads into space. On July 20, New Shepard flies its first astronaut crew to space, and you could be on that rocket.
Blue Origin is offering one seat on this first flight to the winning bidder in its online auction. Anyone can place an opening bid by going to www.BlueOrigin.com. The winning bid will be donated to Blue Origin’s foundation, Club for the Future, to inspire future generations to pursue careers in STEM and help invent the future of life in space.
