Someone paid $ 28 million at an auction to travel with space with Jeff Bezos. The trip will take place on July 20th.
The auction ended on Saturday. The name of the winner has not been made public by the travel company, Blue Origin, yet, but they have promised to do so in the coming weeks. They also promised that the money would be used for charity.
There was a lot of interest in the trip. Already on May 20, the bid was $ 2.4 million, and since then, bidders have pushed the price even higher.
A total of 7,500 people from 159 countries took part in the bid, 20 of whom were still competing on Saturday.
The space trip is scheduled to take place on July 20, the anniversary of the first lunar landing. In addition to the winning bidder, Jeff Bezos and his younger brother, Mark, will also be on board.
