Jeff Bezos will be on board for Blue Origin’s first human space trip one month from now.

In an Instagram post early Monday, Bezos said he, his sibling, and the champ of a continuous closeout, will be on board Blue Origin’s New Shepard space make during its planned dispatch on July 20.

July 20 is the commemoration of the Apollo 11 moon landing. The outing will be a concise jump to space from Texas.

Bezos said toward the beginning of February that he was venturing down as CEO of Amazon to invest more energy, in addition to other things, zeroed in on Blue Origin.

“To see the Earth from space, it transforms you, changes your relationship with this planet. It’s one Earth,” Bezos said in the Instagram post. “I need to go on this flight since it’s a thing I’ve needed to do for my entire life. It’s an undertaking. It’s nothing to joke about for me.”

The sale for an open seat on New Shepard closes Saturday. The triumphant bid right presently remains at $2.8 million, with just about 6,000 members from 143 nations. The triumphant bid sum will be given to Blue Origin’s establishment, Club for the Future, whose mission is to motivate people in the future to seek after professions in STEM and to help imagine the fate of life in space.
