Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos is set to fly to space with his brother, he has announced on Instagram.
Bezos will be aboard the first human flight launched by his space company, Blue Origin.
In an Instagram post, Bezos said space flight was something he had wanted to do “all my life”.
“On July 20th, I will take that journey with my brother,” he wrote in the Instagram post. “The greatest adventure, with my best friend.”
Blue Origin plans to launch its passengers more than 100km (62 miles) above the Earth’s surface, allowing them to experience microgravity. The six-berth capsule will return to Earth under parachutes.
Bezos’s brother Mark called it a “remarkable opportunity” in the video.
