Jeff Bezos takes test flight for commercial space travel

Global Business

First, it was Richard Branson, now Jeff Bezos.

Ten days after the founder of Virgin Galactic made his first trip into space, the founder of Amazon is preparing to do the same.

Bezos and three others will be atop a rocket that blasts off Tuesday morning from the Texas desert. If all goes well, it will mark the first commercial flight for his company Blue Origin.
