Climate Scientists Concerned About Space Tourism | Digital Trends Spanish

While the recent space trips of millionaires Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos have been highlighted, climate scientists are concerned about this situation. They are concerned about the growing increase in space tourism and about the stage that both entrepreneurs have just inaugurated, particularly about the effects that this trend could have on the health of the planet. Professionals fear that the increasing number of rocket flights and the increase in space tourism could damage Earth's atmosphere and contribute to climate change. According to Dallas Kasaboski, an analyst at space consultancy Northern Sky Research, a single Virgin Galactic suborbital flight lasting an hour and a half can generate as much pollution as a 10-hour transatlantic flight. This is concerning to researchers, espec...

Bezos is left without decoration that Richard Branson received | Digital Trends Spanish

Everything indicates that the competition between the millionaires who have gone into space will continue: Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson. Now, the Federal Aviation Authority of the United States has indicated that it will not give an important recognition to the former CEO of Amazon, who does have Branson, of Virgin Galactic. Recently, this body has tightened its rules. Thus, to grant the traditional astronaut wings, the person should have contributed to the flight and its safety, which Bezos did not do, since the New Shepard's trip was controlled from the ground and at no time did the people who were going in the cabin. So far, only Virgin Galactic pilots, including Richard Branson, who pilot the space plane from the cockpit, plus Chief Astronaut Beth Moses, who flew alone in the coc...

Blue Origin: this is the ship that takes Jeff Bezos into space | Digital Trends Spanish

Billionaires go to space. Jeff Bezos, the founding magnate of Amazon and who also holds the title of the richest man in the world, travels to space this Tuesday, July 20, 2021, just nine days after another billionaire, Richard Branson, achieved the feat with the VSS Virgin Galactic Unity. Bezos will do it aboard the New Shepard, a space vehicle system that consists of a reusable rocket and a capsule with a capacity for six crew members. But Bezos will not go to space as an astronaut in a bulky helmet and suit, but as a tourist. Sure, not just anybody. Although he will travel "free", the seat of one of his companions was auctioned for $ 28 million. Given that the experience aboard the New Shepard will last just 11 minutes between takeoff and landing of the capsule, that $ 28 million...

Blue Origin adds the youngest passenger to travel to space | Digital Trends Spanish

The space race from the private sphere has long been unleashed. The various companies involved are trying to get the upper hand, especially after Virgin Galactic's Richard Branson's trip to the edge of space. Now, Blue Origin has announced that Oliver Daemen will be the first paying customer to fly aboard the New Shepard, marking the start of commercial operations for its program. Oliver is just 18 years old, so he would become the youngest passenger to go into space. The funny thing is that on board the ship will also be 82-year-old Wally Funky, the oldest astronaut who will go into space. Daemen will be able to travel after the person who won the Blue Origin auction decided to go on an upcoming mission. His identity is still unknown as he has wanted to remain anonymous. "We thank t...
