What You'll Have To Do Before Going In To Space

If you'd like to travel to outer space, you can - but make certain to go the bathroom first.    Amazon founder Jeff Bezos owns the space company called Blue Origin.    And he’ll sell you a ticket on his company’s space tourism vehicle New Shepard.     

Each New Shepard flight will last about 11 minutes.    As a passengers you'll go to the Blue Origin facility in Texas two days before launch for a half day of training and introductions.    You'll be one of six passengers strapped into soft, black-leather seats lined up around the perimeter of the capsule.  Once in space, you'll be able to unbuckle and enjoy about 4 minutes of weightlessness.     Since you'll board only about 30 minutes before takeoff, the company has no plans to have any kind of system in place for the passengers to do their business.    In other words - there's no bathroom on board.     Bezos said: “The whole thing, from boarding until you’re back on the ground, is probably 40 or 41 minutes. So you’re going to be fine.    He also said there might possibly be a lottery for anyone who can’t afford a trip aboard New Shepard.
