Bezos thanks Amazon customers, employees for making his space flight possible
Jeff Bezos, who is the former Chief Eexecutive Officer of Amazon and the world’s richest man, has expressed his gratitude to members of staff and customers of the company, for making his flight to space possible.
Jeff Bezos became the second billionaire to jet off to space, nine days after Richard Brandson, owner of Virgin Galactic.
According to ABC news, Bezos during the post launch news conference thanked every Amazon employee and customer who he said paid for the trip.
“Seriously, for every Amazon customer out there and every Amazon employee, thank you from the bottom of my heart,” he said
According to Forbes, Bezos revealed in 2017 that he was selling about $1 billion of Amazon stock a year to invest in Blue Origin, his Aerospace company.
Accompanied by his brother, Mark Bezos; 82-year old ex-pliot Wally Funk, and 18-year old high school graduate, Oliver Daemen, the multibilonaire made an historic flight to space on the 52nd anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing on Tuesday.
The father of four affirmed that the flight was a step towards building a “…road to space so that our kids and their kids can build the future.”
