The latest bid for a seat in the astronaut capsule, which has large panoramic windows and can accommodate 6 people, is $ 2.8 million (2.3 million euros). Auction runs until June 12th.

A flight of approximately 10 minutes should take the crew to an altitude of just over 100 kilometres. Many companies and other space agencies have already launched tourists into space. The company was left open on Monday who should take a seat in the remaining vacant seats.

Bezos founded Blue Origin about 20 years ago. In mid-April, the company tested its New Shepard rocket with an astronaut’s capsule. It reached an altitude of about 105 kilometers before returning to Earth.

For the first time, the company’s employees are also training for some of the astronauts’ tasks before takeoff and after landing. However, the actual test flight remained unmanned – the New Shepard never flew with people on board.
