Max Q: Selling space
Max Q: Selling space, in the week, actually includes two, since i used to be out last week for a Canadian legal holiday (and back today for the U.S. one, ironically). There’s plenty to hide, including Blue Origin’s bidding process, lunar landers, spaceships launching stumped, and therefore the return of our very own space event.
Blue Origin’s big bid
Blue Origin is auctioning off one seat on its first-ever human spaceflight, and therefore the bidding got started at $1.4 million — or a minimum of, the general public bidding started there. Before last week, people had been submitting blind bids, but now Blue Origin is posting the highest current bid to its website whenever it hits a replacement high. It’s currently set at $2.8 million, meaning it’s doubled since the bids opened to public scrutiny, and presumably FOMO.
Everything’s build-up to June 12, when the auction will conclude with a live, real-time online competitive bidding round. Seems likely it’ll a minimum of the cross the $3 million mark before all’s said and done, which is sweet news for Blue Origin since run-of-the-mill tickets for the jiffy in suborbital space going forward will probably find yourself more within the many thousands of dollars range.
