Bridget Sentz, Realtor & Carolyn Smith, Realtor ~ Coastal Estate Team - Brevard County, FL: Amazon.com's Founder Plans to Build and Launch Rockets at Cape Canaveral!
Amazon.com's founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, recently announced plans to build and launch reusable rockets through his private space company Blue Origin, right here in Brevard County! The rockets will be built in Merritt Island and launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, resulting in 330 jobs and over $200 million invested into launch and manufacturing facilities.
Seattle-based Blue Origin announced plans to build a launch pad, processing hangar, and a stand to test rocket engines' readiness for flight all at Launch Complex 36, which has been sitting unused for over 10 years. Bezos main objective is to dramatically lower the cost of space travel and open spaceflight to the masses, instead of just to trained astronauts. They plan to do this by flying the orbital booster and engines multiple times, as well as the crew capsule, similar to what SpaceX has been attempting. Thanks to its billionaire backing, Blue Origin neither has nor needs any ties to government or commercial launch contracts, setting it apart from all other space companies that fly from Cape Canaveral.
Bezos and Blue Origin looked at five other possible states before deciding on Florida; with our ideal location and skilled work force needed to build and launch the missions, the Space Coast became the obvious choice.
Very exciting news for the Space Coast!
