  • The competition heats up: It is now estimated that Jeff Bezos has invested approximately half a billion dollars in his space start up Blue Origin.

    He won’t go broke, however, since it is also estimated that his net worth is about $27 billion.

      That is a sizable chunk of money. Hopefully, it means we are close to seeing them doing something the public can watch.

      For that much they should at least have gotten suborbital by now. SpaceX got the fully orbital Falcon 9 at only $300 million.
      Bezos needs a better business manager at his space program.
