I hope he has enough brains to register all his companies up there in order to avoid the socialist taxes that are about to hit America

What's his personal carbon footprint, and why isn't it concerning?

Jeff Bezos blasted into space Tuesday on his rocket companyís first flight with people on board, becoming the second billionaire in just over a week to ride his own spacecraft.

The Amazon founder was accompanied by a hand-picked group: his brother, an 18-year-old from the Netherlands and an 82-year-old aviation pioneer from Texas ó the youngest and oldest to ever fly in space.

Named after Americaís first astronaut, Blue Originís New Shepard rocket soared from remote West Texas on the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, a date chosen by Bezos for its historical significance.

The FAA says that Virgin Galactic cannot launch anyone into space again until an investigation is complete into a mishap that occurred during Julyís flight with founder Richard Branson. The ban comes as Virgin Galactic announced plans to launch three Italian researchers to the edge of space in a few weeks.

The FAA said the rocketship carrying Branson and five Virgin Galactic employees veered off course during its descent back to New Mexico on July 11. The deviation put the ship outside the air traffic control clearance area.

The FAA is overseeing the probe; itís responsible for protecting the public during commercial launches and reentries. Crew safety, on the other hand, is outside its jurisdiction. Virgin Galactic insisted Thursday that Branson and everyone else on board were never in any added danger.

SpaceX is set to launch its first-ever all-civilian crew to space next week on a three-day journey around the Earth that will benefit St. Jude Childrenís Research Hospital.

Four private citizens will be tucked inside the Crew Dragon spacecraft when itís launched into space by Falcon 9 on Sept. 15 as part of the mission dubbed Inspiration4.

The blastoff will take place at NASAís Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida sometime within a five-hour window to be determined three days before the launch, based on weather conditions.

SpaceX's Crew Dragon is scheduled to jettison the first all-civilian space flight to enter the Earth's orbit on September 15. 

After blastoff at Cape Canaveral, Florida, Inspiration 4's four-man crew will circle the globe once every 90 minutes at more than 17,000 miles per hour, or roughly 22 times the speed of sound, for three days before splashdown in the Atlantic on Saturday.   

Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos have backed space missions without professional astronauts onboard, however, both of these flights were 'suborbital' and lasted just a few minutes.

Four space tourists safely ended their trailblazing trip to orbit Saturday with a splashdown in the Atlantic off the Florida coast.

Their SpaceX capsule parachuted into the ocean just before sunset, not far from where their chartered flight began three days earlier. The all-amateur crew was the first to circle the world without a professional astronaut.

The billionaire who paid undisclosed millions for the trip and his three guests wanted to show that ordinary people could blast into orbit by themselves, and SpaceX founder Elon Musk took them on as the companyís first rocket-riding tourists.
