Jeff Bezos Plans Charging $200,000 to 300,000 for Space Rides

Jeff Bezos Plans Charging $200,000 to 300,000 for Space Rides:  According to people familiar with his plans, Jeff Bezos’ rocket company Blue Origin plans to charge passengers $200,000 to $300,000 for its first trips into outer space next year.  

Good grief, that’s a pretty good chunk of change.  Why isn’t this included in my Amazon Prime membership?  After all, they just raised the fees by twenty bucks a year - they can afford it.  And with Trump and Bezos fighting like crazy, it’d be my luck we’d just get up there, only to get shot down by one of Trump’s Space Force patrols.   

But all that aside, I suppose if someone actually has enough spare cash to spend on a trip like that, you may as well just go for the full $300K package.  I mean, what’s the point of going all the way into outer space, if you don’t even have a damn window seat?

After all, this isn’t exactly the kind of flight where you just wanna kick back and watch in-flight movies the whole way.  And for that kind of money, let’s hope Bezos at least springs for lunch and maybe a cocktail or two.  The way I see it, when you’re shelling out $300 grand per seat, peanuts and a diet Coke just ain’t gonna cut it.

Forgot about the Space Force. 

I thought they were going to protect us.

This isn't working out like the diagrams led us to believe.
