'The first step of something big' says Amazon’s Jeff Bezos after space flight

Description

Earth's wealthiest man Jeff Bezos says he's "going to build a road to space so that our kids and their kids can build the future" as he returns from a space flight with the crew of his firm Blue Origin's first crewed space mission. The crew included 82-year-old barrier-breaking woman aviator Wally Funk and and 18-year-old Dutch teen Oliver Daemen. Funk and Daemen became the oldest and youngest astronauts, respectively.

  • Amazon founder Jeff Bezos steps down as CEO to focus on space exploration

    Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is handing over the reins of his $1.7 trillion shopping and entertainment empire to Andy Jassy. Bezos will now be devoting more time to space exploration, philanthropy and The Washington Post. In a year of record profits for the on-line retailer, Ava Seave calls it "a really good strategic move by Bezos." With Amazon under such intense scrutiny - facing a restive workforce and calls for tighter regulation, "it makes sense for ‘the richest guy in the world’ to step away from managing the company." Nevertheless, Ms. Seave is quite certain that he will still maintain a certain level of influence and "the company will, in fact, proceed as if Bezos was the head." Ava Seave is Principal and Co-founder of Quantum Media; Ms. Seave is also Adjunct Professor at Columbia Business School and Columbia Journalism School.
