Several people have spent millions for travelling into space! Know who!
In 1961, when Astronaut Sharon Hagle was in sixth grade, she listened to a radio when astronaut Alan Shepard became the first American to travel to outer space. From that day, she made him her hero and wanted to go suborbital. Her dream was fulfilled on March 31 this year, when she seated on the New Shepard 4, flight NS-20 of Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin rocket program.
Ron Rosano, an Astronomy educator from Muir Beach, California already has plans to go into space twice with both the Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin. Accordingly, Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic and Elon Musk’s SpaceX all the three companies are engaged in space travel.
Rosano also stated that for the first time, one don’t need to have a career on astronaut to go into space. By these companies, for over the next few years, massive people can have the opportunity to see the earth from space and other planets.
It doesn’t come cheap either. While Blue Origin doesn’t reveals its prices, a seat on the maiden crewed flight in July 2021 was for $28 million. A seat on Virgin Atlantic’s sub-orbital journey price also starts at $3,00,000.
