Bezos in Space … at what cost?

Not sure about you, but I would really like to fly to the moon. It seems mad, but flying anywhere seemed mad a century ago. Flying around the world is a reality today, as long as there’s no pandemic, so flying around the solar system will be a reality tomorrow.

In that spirit, my friends at moneytransfers.com sent me this infographic:

Their research and interviews reckon it will get more expensive to go into space, not cheaper.

For example, the first space tourist was millionaire American businessman Dennis Tito who paid $20 million to travel to the International Space Station with a Russian crew in 2001. Today, the cost would be triple that.

Ah well, I’m still going to go to the moon … in my dreams.
