Jeff Bezos… world’s richest man… his entrepreneurship and new expedition

Jeffrey Preston Bezos is an American business magnate, media proprietor, and investor. Bezos is the founder and executive chairman of Amazon, having previously served as chairman, president and CEO of the company. With a net worth of more than $200 billion as of June 2021, he is the richest person in the world according to both Forbes and Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index.

Born in Albuquerque and raised in Houston and later Miami, Bezos graduated from Princeton University in 1986.  Jeff Bezos holds a degree in electrical engineering and computer science. He worked on Wall Street in a variety of related fields from 1986 to early 1994.

He  founded Amazon in late 1994, on a cross-country road trip from New York City to Seattle. The company began as an online bookstore and has since expanded to a wide variety of other e-commerce products and services, including video and audio streaming, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence. It is currently the world’s largest online sales company, the largest Internet company by revenue, and the world’s largest provider of virtual assistants and cloud infrastructure services through its Amazon Web Services branch.

Jeff Bezos founded the aerospace manufacturer and sub-orbital spaceflight services company Blue Origin in year 2000. Blue Origin’s New Shepard vehicle reached space in 2015, and afterwards successfully landed back on Earth. The company has upcoming plans to begin commercial suborbital human spaceflight. He also purchased the major American newspaper The Washington Post in 2013 for $250 million, and manages many other investments through his venture capital firm(s). Around 35,000 people are employed in Blue Origin company alone.

On July 20 2021, Jeff, the adventure sportsman, made the historic flight into space using Blue origin’s renewable boosters, experienced zero gravity for about 10 minutes at an altitude of 352,000 feet (or. over 60 miles) from earth, returned the booster rocket safely back to earth (for use in future missions…) and also landed safely (along with his crew of 2 engineers) at a pre-planned site in Texas.

Did he go up alone or was anyone there with him? Quite a daring feat. With so many private players joining the arena space is going to be a hot place to be at literally. He has invested a lot of money. I don’t how much space exploration can be of help to mankind.

Syed and Gayatri didn’t mean to fall in love, but it happened. Love doesn’t look at logic or backgrounds, and least of all, religion. Gayatri was from a conventional South Indian family that went to a temple every Saturday. Syed bought goats for his family every Eid. That said it all. Their paths would never…
