                       TOUR OF SPACE 
BY : NEHA SHAHAB 
THE WORLD RICHEST MAN AND FOUNDER OF AMAZON RECENTLY WENT TO SPACE AND BACK ON BLUE ORIGIN CAPSULE.  
HE WENT WITH HIS TEAM HIS BROTHER MARK BEZOS , WALLY FUNK A 82 YEAR OLD WOMEN PILOT WHO EARLIER TRAINED TO GO TO SPACE BUT NEVER GOT A CHANCE. ALONG WITH THEM THERE IS 18 YEARS OLD BOY OLIVER DAEMEN. HE TOLD BEZOS THAT HE NEVER PURCHASED ANYTHING FROM AMAZON. DAEMAN GOT THE SEAT AFTER AN ONLINE AUCTION FOR THE SEAT BACKED UP. HE SAID HE DIDN’T PAYED ANYTHING CLOSE TO $ 28 MILLION BUT HE TOLD THAT THEY CHOOSE ME BECAUSE I WAS A YOUNGEST ONE , I WAS A PILOT AND I KNEW QUITE A LOT ABOUT IT ALREADY . 
SOON AFTER BEZOS CAME BACK FROM THE SPACE FLIGHT HE TOLD REPORTERS THAT EVERY AMAZON EMPLOYEES , EVERY CUSTOMERS YOU GUYS PAID FOR ALL THIS AND THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. IT'S VERY APPRECIATED.
