Sumary of What will it cost to fly on New Shepard?:
- For the first flight, Blue Origin auctioned off one of the seats with the proceeds going to Mr. Bezos’ space-focused nonprofit, Club for the Future.
- The winning bid was $28 million, an amount that stunned even Blue Origin officials, far higher than they had hoped.
- Blue Origin announced it will distribute $19 million of that to 19 space-related organizations — $1 million each.
