Jeff Bezos is strapping in for a crazy dangerous ride to space

In a dazzling display of optimism, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has announced he intends to be aboard the first ever crewed flight to space for his space company Blue Origin.

The sub-orbital New Shepard flight is set to take off on July 20, and as mentioned in the previous line this is the first EVER crewed flight for the spacecraft, making it an incredibly dangerous endeavour.

SpaceX has been sending crews to the ISS multiple times now and even Elon Musk still hasn't decided to take a joyride.

And he's crazy.
