If there are any other deca billionaires out there looking to fly into space, line up now. 

Jeff Bezos became the latest mega rich, billionaire space cowboy to ride a rocket shape into the general area of outer space. 

The Amazon founder and richest person in the world has always been obsessed with space he’s said, and the wanna be astronaut scratched a lifelong itch by going 62 miles on top of earth on his Blue Origin space capsule. 

Bezos attained weightlessness, did the customary flips at zero gravity, then floated by down with the module for a perfect landing. 

He made even more of a buzz post flight, as he was rocking a cowboy hat the set the Internet aflame. 

It wasn’t the strongest look according to most people who commented on it, but he was able to live up to the “space cowboy” description. 

Bezos took a page out of his ex-wife’s book by handing out a couple big money donations, no strings attached to two winners of his brand new “Courage and Civility” award. 

He doled out $100 million each to Jose Andres and Van Jones. Yes, that Van Jones from CNN.
