    Jeff Bezos is going to space.

    Any chance we can convince space to keep him and not send him back?

    Actually there is a very good chance outer space would keep him.

    I was going to say something similar. I hope he goes... and stays.

    (A suborbital flight would be an ultra cool thing to experience, though...)

    Senate Preparing $10 Billion Bailout Fund for Jeff Bezos Space Firm
    https://theintercept.com/2021/05/25/...enate-bailout/

    May 25 2021
    Now that Jeff Bezos’s space flight company Blue Origin has lost a multibillion contract to Elon Musk’s SpaceX, Congress is prepping the ground for Bezos to win a contract anyway, ordering NASA to make not one but two awards.
    The order would come through the Endless Frontier Act, a bill to beef up resources for science and technology research that’s being debated on the Senate floor this week. An amendment was added to that legislation by Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., to hand over $10 billion to NASA — money that most likely would go to Blue Origin, a company that’s headquartered in Cantwell’s home state.

    Cantwell’s amendment is no sure bet though: Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., introduced a last-minute amendment Monday to eliminate the $10 billion. “It does not make a lot of sense to me that we would provide billions of dollars to a company owned by the wealthiest guy in America,” Sanders told The Intercept Tuesday.

    Everybody already knows he is a "rimmer".
