Bezos brothers set to blast off
While Jeff Bezos has stepped down as CEO of Amazon, after 27 years at the helm of online retail giant, he's certainly not moved into the slow lane. In fact, Bezos is now turning his attention to his other business interests, many of which look to the future.
The world's richest man is set to fly to space on his spaceflight company Blue Origin's first human flight on 20 July, nearly 52 years after the Apollo 11 moon landing, on what Bezos calls "the greatest adventure", one he says he has wanted to make all his life.
Ahead of next week's space launch, Bezos and Blue Origin have just announced a $200 million (£145m) donation to the Smithsonian Institution – the biggest gift since the Smithsonian was founded in 1846 – with $130 million (£94m) of the donation going towards the creation of a new education centre called the Bezos Learning Center, focusing on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics), at the National Mall in Washington DC.
