Billionaire Jeff Bezos' space rocket New Shepard is prepared and ready for the next stage of the process with tickets primed to go on the market, Blue Origin announced

Space fanatics will soon be able to buy tickets for Jeff Bezos' space tourism rocket called New Shepard.

Blue Origin announced it will soon begin selling tickets for rides but kept a lot of details hush-hush.

They didn't reveal how much the tickets will cost but insisted more details will arrive only days away on May 5.

The New Shepard is designed to carry as many as six people on a ride past the edge of space and into the atmosphere.

Capsules on previous flight tests reached a whopping altitude of more than 340,000 feet.

Jeff Bezos' space venture Blue Origin gave fans the news in a video released on Thursday.

“Guys, how exciting is this – come on!” Bezos said in the video.

If potential customers are hoping to bag a ride, they'll need to submit their name and email on a form on the company's website.

“Sign up to learn how you can buy the very first seat on New Shepard,” it wrote.

The Amazon founder is driving across the Texas desert in the remote location of the New Shepard launch facility.

The rocket is designed to carry up to six passengers past the edge of space where people will spend around 10 minutes in zero gravity before venturing back to Earth.

It will also feature windows to provide a view only a select few humans have experienced before.

New Shepard launches vertically with the booster detaching during takeoff and later returns to a concrete landing pad nearby.

The landing is slowed via parachutes when it comes back to Earth.

Previously, Bezos has said Blue Origin will price New Shepard flights similar to its competitors.

Virgin Galactic, from Sir Richard Branson, has held its ground in the niche space sector of tourism.

Until now, it has sold 600 passenger tickets at a price between $200,000 and $250,000 each (£145,000 to £180,000).

Although the company expects prices could increase for the first commercial flights.

Virgin Galatic has also said it expects demand for space tourism flights to outpace supply over the next 10 years, allowing both companies to succeed.

Money has no value, some papers ink tattooed to make the world spin. Meanwhile, money answereth all things, money is a vanity that buys vanity but at end all is vanity. Mind you, without this vanity any other other vanity is impossible.
That vanity called money is important to my sanity because my sanity is to ride on this capsule which without money my wish is insanity.

A true son of God.

People using their brains for human advancements..

When Henry Ford first conceived the idea that everyone should have a car, people thought he was mad....

Soon enough, everyone will be able to afford to have a trip to space.....
