Blue Origin is on the rise.

According to our colleagues from CNBC, relayed by 

Capital

, the space company of billionaire Jeff Bezos could launch the construction of new New Shepard rockets in order to meet an ever-growing demand from the space tourism market.

Blue Origin CEO Bob Smith told our colleagues that "thousands of people are in the bidding process."

A ticket to space was sold last year for 28 million dollars.

In 2021, three spaceflights organized by Blue Origin carried 14 people into space, including

Star Trek

actor William Shatner.

Bob Smith estimates that the company is able to “easily double” the number of missions this year, to six flights.

Upon returning from space, William Shatner described the trip as "the most profound experience" of his life.

Companies other than Blue Origin also allow the very wealthy to rub shoulders with the stars.

This is the case of SpaceX, owned by Elon Musk, and Virgin Galactic, founded by Sir Richard Branson.

Each should organize several spaceflights this year in order to meet demand.
