想象一下你有无限的钱。只是一种不可阻挡的美元 - 购买任何东西的能力,并稳定一切。您是否采取了有意义的措施来减轻气候危机?或者至少你是杰夫贝斯的话。或处女首席执行官理查德布兰森。

周二,贝佐斯的蓝色起源将推出包括前亚马逊首席执行官的船员,他略低于高调的兄弟,一个小型巨大原始飞行员,以及一个年轻的荷兰物理学生,到了地球的外边缘。贝佐斯将尝试第二名,尽管蓝色起源敏锐地指出,构成空间的边界是有点争议的。

想象一下你有无限的钱。只是一种不可阻挡的美元 - 购买任何东西的能力,并稳定一切。你用它来结束世界饥饿吗?您是否采取了有意义的措施来减轻气候危机?哈哈不。你去太空!或者至少你是杰夫贝斯的话。或处女首席执行官理查德布兰森。

周二,贝佐斯的蓝色起源将推出包括前亚马逊首席执行官的船员,他略低于高调的兄弟,一个小型巨大原始飞行员,以及一个年轻的荷兰物理学生,到了地球的外边缘。 (有线自己的史蒂文税将报告从发射网站的生活,所以留意他的派遣。)

如果您想观看,这里有详细信息:

  • The launch will stream on Blue Origin's website. Here’s the link.
  • The broadcast starts at 7:30 am Eastern time on July 20. The actual launch is aiming for 9:00 am ET, but expect delays. (As with all liftoffs, that timing depends on weather, the whims of random animals, or any number of technical snafus. Launching a rocket is dangerous, and things can go awry.)

飞行本身应该需要大约11分钟。虽然任何时候有风险涉及人类和太空飞行,但专家都希望事情顺利进行。

这个事件足够历史。只有少数船员的商业空间推出,这是蓝色的首先。 (如果您保持得分,Virgin已完成另一个营业的航班。麝香的太空速在现在已经将人们扔进太空,虽然没有人尚未成为平民。)由于最后一刻的预订变更,现在也是如此携带最年轻,最古老的人的区别是要走向太空的。这是82岁的乘客和前飞行员沃利·沃尔克特别合理,他们以前被拒绝了她终身梦想到太空的梦想。

显然,这次发布也是贝奥斯的重要交易。亿万富翁在一个Dude-bro冷战中锁定了自己,每个人都渴望使历史成为一个空间旅游品牌的第一个领导,将自己投入到热门圈中。布兰森上周夺得了胜利,在他的处女海洋班车中拥有批量分目的任务。贝佐斯将尝试第二名,尽管蓝色起源敏锐地指出,构成空间的边界是有点争议的。 Bezos Gang的抛物线Voyage将通过美国国防部的圆形号码,标志着空间边界(联邦航空管理局使用了50英里,这是布兰森上周飞行的地方) - 让他们保持足够长的时间来发痒深渊。确保未来旅行的价格标签可能有足够的时间,以便有面团的价格吸引。


英文译文:

Imagine you have infinite money. Just an unstoppable amount of dollars—the ability to buy anything and destabilize everything. Do you use it to end world hunger? Do you take actually meaningful steps to mitigate the climate crisis? Ha ha, no. You go to space! Or at least you do if you’re Jeff Bezos. Or Virgin CEO Richard Branson.

On Tuesday, Bezos’ Blue Origin will launch a crew including the former Amazon CEO, his slightly less high-profile brother, a trailblazing octogenarian pilot, and a young Dutch physics student up to the outer edges of the planet. (WIRED’s own Steven Levy will be reporting live from the launch site, so keep an eye out for his dispatches.)

If you want to watch, here are the details:

  • The launch will stream on Blue Origin's website. Here’s the link.
  • The broadcast starts at 7:30 am Eastern time on July 20. The actual launch is aiming for 9:00 am ET, but expect delays. (As with all liftoffs, that timing depends on weather, the whims of random animals, or any number of technical snafus. Launching a rocket is dangerous, and things can go awry.)

The flight itself should take about 11 minutes. And while there are risks involved any time you mix humans and space flight, experts expect things to go smoothly. 

This event is historic enough. There have only been a handful of crewed commercial space launches, and this is Blue Origin’s first. (If you’re keeping score, Virgin has completed one other crewed flight. Musk’s SpaceX has been flinging people into space for a while now, though none have been civilians yet.) Thanks to a last-minute booking change, the launch also now has the distinction of carrying both the youngest and the oldest person to ever go to space. It’s particularly neat for the 82-year-old passenger and ex-pilot Wally Funk, who had previously been denied her lifelong dream of traveling to space.

This launch is a big deal for Bezos too, obviously. The billionaires had locked themselves in a dude-bro cold war, each eager to make history as the very first head of a space tourism brand to hurl himself into the thermosphere. Branson claimed victory last week, with a bombastic mission in his Virgin Galactic shuttle. Bezos will try for second place, though Blue Origin has been keen to point out that the boundary of what constitutes space is a little contentious. The Bezos gang’s parabolic voyage will carry them past the Kármán line—or 62 miles up, the US Department of Defense's round number that marks the boundary of space (the Federal Aviation Administration uses a more lenient 50 miles, which is where Branson flew last week)—and keep them up there just long enough to tickle the abyss. It’ll probably be plenty of time to ensure that the price tag of future trips appeals to those with the dough.
