Jeff Bezos, Amazon's founder, has completed the first human flight to space. In an incredible moment in human history, Bezos alongside three other crew members completed an 11-minute space flight. 

"Tuesday’s space flight was Blue Origin’s first with passengers on board, a group that included the world’s wealthiest person—Mr. Bezos’ net worth amounts to more than $200 billion, according to Bloomberg—as well the oldest-ever space traveler and the youngest, 82-year-old aviator Wally Funk and 18-year-old student Oliver Daemen, respectively. Mark Bezos, the co-founder of private-equity firm HighPost Capital and Jeff Bezos’ brother, was also on the trip."

If money wasn't an issue who would you like to come with you to space? Even if the flight was only 11-minutes, this would be an opportunity of a lifetime. Bezos believes this could be the first step to making space travel more accessible. Even though it is incredibly expensive to travel to space, Tuesday's flight is the first step to making space travel more realistic to society. 

Let's take a look at some celebrities with some space travel experience (wink wink). 
Tom Hanks, Ben Affleck, Robert Downey Jr, and many more. 

Jeff Bezos got to travel to space with the power of his wallet but the future looks bright to have people traveling to space more frequently.
