Jeff Bezos, one of the world’s rich, may not be the first billionaire to go on a space mission. But he is about to create a new history with this flight.
Bezos will be accompanied by his brother in his space journey on Tuesday as well as the senior and junior astronaut with him. Interestingly, Bezos will stay in space for 11 minutes.
Bezos told his fellow passengers, ‘Sit back, relax, look out the window and feel the view outside’. The whole world is watching this journey of Jeff Bezos. There is a lot of discussion about this news in the international media.
The rocket that Bezos and his brother Mark Bezos are going by is completely autonomous. Although there is a danger in it too. Bezos and his co-travellers will go up into space and return in 11 minutes. According to CNN, Bezos’s flight will only reach an altitude of about 100 km from the earth.
This visit of Bezos is considered quite successful. Due to the suborbital flight, this rocket will not have to go through the high speed and complicated process of re-entering Earth’s orbit. This will reduce the risk. When the spacecraft re-enters Earth’s orbit, its temperature reaches 3500 degrees Fahrenheit. Due to this, the astronauts sitting inside have to face enormous pressure.
Bezos is going to an altitude of about 3,50,000 feet. Here he will not need to wear a spacesuit. He will be able to breathe with the help of an oxygen mask.
