Jeff Bezos’ rocket company plans to charge amateur explorers between $200,000 to $300,000 for a trip into space next year, according to sources with knowledge of the plans.

The space tourism company had earlier made public the general design of the vehicle – comprising a launch rocket and detachable passenger capsule – but has been tight-lipped on production status and ticket prices. Potential customers and the aerospace industry have been eager to know the cost of a ticket on Blue Origin’s New Shepard space vehicle.

Blue Origin representatives did not respond to requests for comment on its programs and pricing strategy.
