The richest man in the world is going to space. Jeff Bezos says he'll be on board his space company Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket launch July 20th. He'll be joined by his younger brother, Mark Bezos. The launch is expected to take the company's capsule and rocket to the edge of space on an eleven-minute flight. Bezos announced his plans Monday on Instagram, saying that he's wanted to go to space since he was five-years-old.
