Tonight here inside a memphis hospital for one and this will give you a real sense of what they're seeing where there are large numbers of unvaccinated americans and tonight new questions here after a new study was just published today.

More study is needed but tonight here what we know so far. Abc's trevor all from memphis tonight. The delta variant spreading furiously among the unvaccinated now estimated to account for four out of every five cases of corona virus. The delta variant now represents eighty-three percent of sequenced cases. This is a dramatic increase up from fifty percent for the week of july third in tonight adding to the concern. The new headline involving the johnson and johnson. One shot vaccine a new study raising questions about whether it's less effective against the delta variant than the original virus health experts cautioned though these findings are from blood samples in a lab and other studies found the j. j. vaccine seemed to work well against the delta vary but it does fuel the debate over whether those who got the one shot at some point might be encouraged to get a second of one of the other vaccines. The new study has not been peer reviewed and it comes as the number of new cases skyrockets in the us in tennessee. Only thirty eight percent of the state is fully vaccinated. Frustrating healthcare workers like memphis nurse. Matt robinson who took us inside methodist bonner hospital. Now we're seeing somebody it's my age comes through the door.

Quite frankly and i wanna say that officially dr pfau chief flatly denying allegations the nih funded so-called gain of function research in wuhan which includes experiments make a virus more transmissible only evidence is pointing that it came from the lab.

"Hey there and welcome to tech stuff. I'm your host. Jonathan strickland. i'm an executive producer with iheartradio. And i love all things tech and it's another week and another billionaire going to space earlier this month. Richard branson took a very short jont out to the edge of space aboard virgin galactic spaceship. To which is a single rocket engine vehicle that actually piggybacks on a mothership. A larger air vehicle called white knight two so then it detaches from white knight to ignites its rocket engine and thus does not have to take off from the surface of the earth now. This morning as i was writing this. I was writing it just as amazon founder. Jeff bezos had finished his similarly short trip in the new shepherd blue origin space vehicle which is a capsule that sits on top of a a launch vehicle. He was part of the first crew to ride that vehicle to space so the first people to actually be in a blue origin space vehicle He went along with his brother. Mark and an aviation legend. Wally funk she has now become the oldest astronaut to go to space and oliver damon the eighteen year old who took the spot of some anonymous person who purchased a twenty eight million dollar ticket to go to space but then and the back out due to what recalled scheduling difficulties which is pretty wild right kind of wonder. What's in your schedule where you're like. Oh man i can't go to space today. I gotta go buy milk or whatever it is anyway. Damon is now the youngest person to have gone to space so in the same little space capsule. They had the oldest astronaut and the youngest astronaut to ever go to space damons father by the way runs a private equity firm in the netherlands. So this is not the case of some like ragamuffin. Finding a golden ticket and a wonka bar or something no because space it turns out is not just trying to kill you. It's also fricking expensive. Most of us will never be able to afford to go now. You could say that. I've got a case of sour grapes and i admit you're right. I do have a case of sour grapes. I'm absolutely grouchy about this. But moreover there has been a growing backlash against branson bazo and elon. Musk as well because the billionaires were publicly racing toward getting into space and meanwhile we have these massive problems that continue to balloon out of control back here on the ground. This has led some to say you know why are you seemingly running away even though they were only up in space for a minute and less than a minute in some cases it's not like it's them saying peace out and flying off to some luxury.

"8. 41. Steve, Did you see the pictures of Jeff Brazos and the crew emerging from the capsule, and he he was wearing It looks like a cowboy hat. Yeah, cowboy hat. They came out of the capsule, and they high fived the people that were waiting for them and lots of hugs, and they were very excited to be back on the ground and obviously lots of happy. People at blue origin and obviously Amazon this morning, Jeff Bezoza Mark Bezos, his brother, Wally Funk, Oliver Damon, all back on Earth safely out of the capsule now that they have launched to the edge of space, I was thinking of the Alan Shepard mission. Our first man in space, Up and down. No, no orbit, just like today's lunch. Coming on July 20th and, of course, back in 1969, Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon. And it was interesting that you didn't see all the networks, uh, there at the launch with their Broadcast booths. It was only Jeff Brazos company set up to cover it. They didn't have pressed there, did they? They had some press there, but it was not open to the public. There was not something like we see with NASA where you know they sort of do it right down the middle of the road. There is a commercial aspect to some of what we were watching and listening to today. Matter of fact, when the Livestream just signed off the person who was running the Livestream said. We're open for business. We're accepting applications and tickets are on sale now for future flights on blue origin, and they gave the email where people could send in and request tickets to go into space. Steve. Do you wonder what a real NASA veteran astronaut who flew Gemini seven Gemini 12 Apollo eight and Apollo 13 thought of this? I would love to hear that. Captain James level is with us. Good morning, Jim. How you doing? Fine, Bob. Fine. I'm up here. Just watch him, But just one on. What did you think? Well, that's just repeating what? My earlier days Aurea miniature. Yeah, yeah, but it must be gratifying to you. All of the attention and all of the interest and everybody watching and listening now, as they did back in the day, except for Apollo 13. When you guys went up, nobody cared till you got in trouble right? By the time 13 flew. It was old hat until the explosions occurred. Now the the plan for Jeff Bezoza and his company. They're They're looking for business, uh, in a space market that is going to triple in size, they say to more than a trillion dollars in annual sales by 2040. And Morgan Stanley says assuming rapid technological developments enable routine moon landings, asteroid mining and space tourism. Do you think all that is going to happen in the next 20 years or so? I think it's going to take about 20 years. I don't know how quickly that will wrap up. I mean, if there's enough people that are infused well, going up for a few seconds into into the atmosphere and then coming back down again. I guess it survived and so good business. If not, people are going to get tired of that. Uh and it's gonna die out in the herd. All right. Be honest with me. Captain Jeff Bezoza goes up there for 11 minutes 62 miles in space. How many miles did you fly? If you total up all four of your missions. Actually, I'm only one mission on 13. I and my companions hold the the highest altitude records known and probably for a long time and We go to Mars. I went way past the moon to finally start coming back towards the earth. So, uh, yeah. You're talking to the wrong guy was as far as enthusiasm goes. Yeah, I I can I can understand that. I really can, but I mean, it's a whole new era in in space, and, uh, where it is Now, Where does NASA fit into all this now? Bezoza represents what's happening with the civilians along with Branson. But what about NASA missions? Uh, to Mars or to the moon again? Where do we stand on that? Well, that's that's the same. That hasn't changed at all. Nasa's mission now is to explore You know, other worlds and going to Mars and and doing those things and maybe doing something that will be productive in space. That's what NASA does. This is just merely the people who have the money to do it. Can go for a few brief seconds. And what is it constituted to be? You know, into space out of the atmosphere? Yeah, I I was thinking of you when I watched Jeff Bezos emerged from the capsule wearing his cowboy hat. You know, there's no quarantine. There's no splashdown in the ocean. There's no there's no dramatic, uh, sort of sea rescue. What was going through your mind when you watch that return? Uh, I was reliving my old days and said, Gee, this is pretty easy. Yeah, Yeah, no kidding. You know, I just I just watched the Apollo 13 movie again for the 25th time and it's shit. It's still It's still fun to see that and to go through that. And remember what a harrowing time that was, and all of the people on the ground who worked to bring you guys back and and look where we are today. That's right. And stand by. There might be another, uh, space movie coming up without the civilians. It's the old commander Jim Lovell. Always good to talk to you. Thanks for happen on with us this morning, Best to Maryland and the family and hope to catch up with you again soon. National like Bob about him. We're in space again. We're in space again. Yes, sir. Stay healthy. It's 8 47. How about that? Yeah, It's nice. That was pretty cool, huh? He's not impressed. It was easy. It was too easy. That's twice, you know. He didn't give the mileage. You just talked about that one. The one mission, But if you total up, I haven't here somewhere. Uh, it's incredible How many miles he flew in space in for a long time. I think before the shuttle's he had the record being in space, Uh, Traveling more miles than any other human. And now it's Richard Branson and Jeff Bezoza. Our new space heroes question Mark question and the email that I mentioned earlier. By the way, if you want to get in on this, his astronauts at blue origin dot com if you want to buy a ticket to space I'll go. If level goes, I'll be. I'll be holding on to him. I would say 8 48 right.

"Line Does morning news here on Wdbo 173 FM and am 5 80 Orlando's news and talk. We appreciate you waking up with this this morning here on Wdbo. What a morning It's going to be another billionaire scheduled to head into space this morning Last week it was Richard Branson's turn. This morning. It's all about the bas owes is it's Jeff Bezos has turned to go into space on his blue origin flight. They will blast off or at least they're scheduled to blast off nine a.m. from West Texas. Today. We'll carry it live here on W. D. B o, But this is a different deal than what Branson did from last week. I mean, Branson had that space plane that dropped from a carrier at about 45,000 Ft. Playing, you know, fires its engines and then goes up. What? 53.5 miles when we were talking about that yesterday, is it spacer? Is it not space? According to one scale, it is not spaces on the edge of space. But, um, bezoza plans on going up 62 Miles, which technically, according To this gauge that we used yesterday. That would be space, so we'll see what happens today. But this is a completely different system. This one is a traditional rocket. I mean, this is a rocket. It's a capsule. Um it's a rocket that goes up 62 miles, and the capsule separates it continues on to space. So you have two billionaires here, but two different ways of doing things and this is going to be a much more traditional lift off from West Texas later this morning. About 2.5 minutes after lift off the booster will stop firing its engines capsule will separate from the booster to continue past the 62 mile mark. During that phase, crew members can get out of their seats float around for three or four minutes. Then they'll return to their seats for a parachute aided descent back to the Texas desert. So in all it'll take about 11 minutes or so. So we're looking forward to carrying this for you Live on Wdbo. Four, Uh, people going up, Jeff Bezoza. You know about him, His brother Mark will be on board. Jeff apparently asked Mark to be on the flight because he wanted to share the greatest adventure with my best friend. So Mark Bezos is aboard Wally Funk. Is a board. She is going to become the oldest space flyer at the age of 82. She was actually one of the Mercury 13 aviators who were subjected to the same test as NASA's Mercury astronauts. Back in the day, so she gets to go up and Oliver Damon, uh, is due to become history's youngest space flyer at the age of 18, native of the Netherlands, he put in a bid for a new Shepard seat that was auctioned off for charity. His bid was not high enough to win, but he arranged to buy a seat on the second crewed flight and then the winner. Um, who paid 28 million in an auction to get a seat on this first flight actually bowed out now. Apparently this person Is too busy to go to space. I I ask everybody here in the studio who in the world Other than maybe the president of the United States. I'm a little busy scat. Well in Marcia Taylor would be too busy to go to space. I'm making excuses. Is he Is he is he married? Do we know? But nobody knows who this person is. Whether it's a he or she we don't know. I'd like to think that maybe an intelligent wife came to him and said, Hey, this is a horrible idea. Or maybe just a spouse in general was just like, Hey, this is a bad idea. Bad idea. 28 million. Sorry, honey. You got to clean the garage is That what you're telling me? Well, no. I just feel like this is a hare brained scheme that some man going through his middle life crisis goes through and it's like I'm going to space with Jeff Bezos and you come home and tell your wife and she's like, No, you're not. And it's like you're right. I'm not. I don't know what I was thinking of. What was, I think in 28 million. I just spent 28 million to clean my garage. She did what Seriously, who is too busy to go to space? I don't know. I don't know who this person If you have 28 million, you have more millions. I mean, uh, probably got a dent in the you don't Maybe another space call came along that he's going to go on and you know, after you describe what happens for 28 million, I'll tell you, man, I think of a lot of better things to do. It's really so you're not into this whole space day. Negative. No, I'm with right. I can think of a lot better things to spend $20 Million. I mean, that's like never working for the rest of your life. Sitting on a beach somewhere with The cocktail. So the good times and that's interesting. Because how many? How many seconds or how many minutes did Richard Branson and his crew spend technically spend in space? Think about three minutes, tops? Yeah. Right? And and this entire flight apparently is going to be like 11 minutes. Is it worth it? I mean, you can go to a space simulator over there at NASA over at Cape can Ever Right like is 28 Million to go up to the edge of space experience. Weightlessness, is it If you had 28 mil to spend, would you spend it? You know what? The next year they come out with a weightlessness machine and you're like, Oh, you know, I could have just stayed on the ground, right? Right. The person who decided not to go. Maybe it was because they realized there was all this debate. They said Look, when you guys get 70 miles up There's no question then I'll go. But I'm not going to do this 53 62 things. I don't want pseudo space. Don't don't give me pseudo space. I'm not paying for pseudo. Give me real space. Right. It's 5 17 and Wdbo Scott Inez with your Orlando's Morning news.

"Quorum and brought the state Capitol in Austin to a halt. Well, the move as it appears to have given Senator Lindsey Graham an idea He says, quote. I'm taking inspiration from Texas Democrats bid to stop a new round of election laws and there's in the in their city, he says. I'm going to follow their lead by leaving D. C. So that we cannot vote on. I believe the infrastructure built. Yeah, I mean, look, if this is the way the game is going to be played now, Yeah, that's what's good for the goose. You know, let's go ahead and just pack our stuff and suddenly disappear somewhere in the country. But you know why this won't work for the Republicans. Because they're too egotistical. They just they will not listen. Somebody will get caught. They'll be arrested and brought back to Washington. And there's your core. Um, and because it's 50 50, so everybody has to disappear. And they won't do it because their egos will not allow them. They're not smart enough when the host pressed Senator Lindsey Graham on whether he was serious about trying to derail the upcoming legislation by flame, he said, Hell, yeah. Now. I think it's a great idea. I I would suggest that if that's the only way you're going to be able to stop this ridiculous inflationary building, Yeah, do it, But it won't work because one of you, probably Mitt Romney is going to be arrested at Costco. And they and they and they will send marshals out to arrest you and bring you back. Well, that was so sad after he lost the presidency is at Costco, like a month later filling up his gas tank. No, it was actually a couple of days later. I'll never forget because Yeah, I never knew this and he had to go back to his $11 million beachfront mansion of shot. That poor guy really makes me so sad. But It is interesting. I remember watching the documentary on me, he said. A lot of you probably don't know how the Secret Service works. But when you're the candidate you have secret service. And literally When you lose, they're gone. They take you to your home and then they leave and they're going. Yeah, you're done. It's shocking how quickly you become unimportant anymore. Why isn't it? It would be nice if they could actually do this, though Democrats are always good about marching in lockstep Republicans. Unfortunately, there are too many egos. They're just some of the other. There's always one or two of that's just too self righteous. They have to be on camera. They have to explain what's really going on. And that's when it's over. So it'll never work. But hey, good luck. I think you should try it. I think it would be amusing to watch earning next training topic. Try not to catch Covid. Boy that looked bad. How about putting a mask on the plane? You hypocrites? Oh, they're so happy. They're all on the plane together. Not one of them wearing a mask. Now five have covid. So it was a super spreader event as to what the Democrats did when they left Austin to go to Washington. They took covid with them. They're killing people, but nobody seems to care. Next training topic. Ernie Brown. Yeah. Jeff Bezos is risking his life to reach space and know that Bezos, who founded the company in 22,000 will be the first passenger on the new Shepard rocket along with his brother, Mark Bezos.

Riding along with them will be the 82, year old aviator Wally Funk and an 18 year old Dutchman. Named Oliver Damon. I'm telling you, there is something weird about this. This is kind of one of those things you know, Like a rich guy walks around. He's got $10,000 in cash, she said. I'll tell you what I'll give you 10 grand. If you go roll around in that mud puddle, and then he walks away, saying, I don't know how rich people ever get bored. There's something weird going on. That's what's happening. That's what Yeah, he he's got the oldest and the youngest. There's some kind of weird human experiment going on, hates the dash. I don't know what it is.

Good morning, Richard. Thank you so much for taking my call while great. Um, interview tonight I was blown away. Um, And, you know, I guess I have to share really cool story with you for open lines because this is amazing. And then I'll share one of my favorite movies. But I'm sure you heard about this 18 year old kid who's going to be the youngest person to ever go into space with Jeff Bezoza. Um his dad. Yeah. He won the auction $28 million. And he's going to be going going along with Wally Funk, who is in the 82 year old pilot, one of the first one of the burglary 13. Women. And then um, this kid's name is Oliver Damon. And and then Mark Bezos. Jeff Bezos. Brother is going to be going. But what an amazing story. I mean, it is. It is absolutely How would you like to be on that on that? Uh, that rocket I think that would be one of the most amazing things to actually see the Earth from space. I mean, um, you know, I'm a little bit jealous of this kid. He's only 18. And he gets to see the earth from space. But, um, yeah, that would definitely be one of the coolest, um, experiences I think. What about you, would you? Would you go if you were given the opportunity? If if? Well, here's the thing I mean, the idea of seeing the earth from space. Absolutely. That would be mind altering. It would be, um This monumental The thing is, we have amusement park here called Canada's Wonderland and my Boys. We get season passes my boys they love the You know the roller coasters, the bigger the the scarier, the better as far as they're concerned. And I just I don't know what as you get older. I don't know if it's an inner ear thing, but I can't. I can't. I can't get on a roller coaster anymore. I don't think I could survive getting on a rocket and sustaining the G force and so forth. I think it would be the end of me. Yeah. Well, you know, I I I'm a big thrill junkie myself. I love going to like theme parks, roller coasters, all that, But, um, you know, I mean, this kid when you think about it, he just graduated high school and he gets to go into space. I mean, I can't stress the The importance of this because you know he's going to be the youngest person to ever go into space. And I just think it's such a It's inspirational story. Um, Mike, let me ask you. How old are you? If you don't mind me asking, I'm 2025. Yes. Okay. You're You're very young. I would. I would wager that You will certainly live at to see a time when going into, uh, exiting the earth's atmosphere going into space, not necessarily going to the moon or to the Mars but certainly going into space. Is going to become Like getting on a bus. Within your lifetime. So I think you know, uh, I wish you a long and healthy life. I think you'll you'll You'll have that opportunity. Right? And and as as, with most things, you know, the price obviously will come down. Considerably and and fairly quickly. So you know, hang in there and hold on to that dream because I think you'll be able to to realize it. Mm. I appreciate that. And, you know, I think it's really amazing what we're doing with, you know, trying to colonize Mars, You know, one of my favorite coast to Coast guest, Robert Zubrin, Um, you know, talked a lot about the advances advancements were making with caught the colonization of other planets. Mars and so, Yeah, that would definitely be a cool thing to do. And I'm looking forward to that possibility in the future. As far as movies. I want to touch on this really quick. Um Growing up. Harry Potter was also one of my favorite movies. Um, you know, I think there's a lot of symbolic things in the Harry Potter movies. But also kind of a lot of, you know, like life lessons in, um you know things that we can learn from those movies and, um, you know, I grew up with them. I mean, those were the biggest thing in the in the 2010. So, um, yeah. I just really appreciate you kind of bringing those movies up.

"Year old. Oliver damon will become the youngest person ever to fly into space when he joins. Jeff bezos and his brother mark bezos for their eleven minute flight on july twentieth. Here's where the story gets even stranger. The person who had originally won the seat by putting up twenty eight million dollars now has what bazo says company called scheduling conflicts damon whose father purchased a seat for him on the second flight was then moved up to the first flight. But none of this is the real story to me. Jeff bezos chose for the fourth member of his crew and eighty two year. Old woman named mary wallace wally funk. Wally began training to become an astronaut in nineteen sixty one as part of the mercury. Thirteen women in space program. She was at the top of her class when the project was cancelled. None of the thirteen women flew with nasa undeterred. She is logged nineteen thousand six hundred flight hours as an aviator and taught some three thousand people to fly. She served as the first female air safety investigator for the national transportation safety board and was the first woman to be an inspector for the federal aviation administration. If all goes well next tuesday she will become the oldest person ever to go into space another aviator is making headlines today but for a tragic reason john f. kennedy junior died in this day in nineteen ninety nine when the private airplane he was piloting crashed into the atlantic ocean. He his wife and his wife's sister all perished for all her personal accomplishments. Wally funk may be most remembered for her space flight at the age of eighty two for all of his personal accomplishments. John f. kennedy junior is most remembered by many people for his fatal flight at the age of thirty eight. We cannot always choose the circumstances for which others remember us. Joseph didn't choose to be enslaved and then promoted in egypt. Moses didn't choose to be exiled in the desert and then to confront pharaoh on behalf of his people. David didn't choose to be king of israel. Paul didn't choose to meet jesus on the damascus road. John didn't choose to be exiled on pat mos but we can choose the character with which we confront our circumstances if we seek to be godly. God can use us in ways that change our circumstances and impact our culture for eternity. This is why our spiritual enemy is attacking christian leaders at the point of personal morality. So fiercely as we have discussed this week he is trying to remove any vestige of christian influence from the secular culture. He wants christians to avoid persecution and seek popularity by compromising the moral truth of scripture. When christians make such compromises personally our sins can be even more damaging to the cause of christ. A youth minister was arrested recently for child pornography another was on solicitation of a minor former major league baseball player. Ben zobrist is alleging that his former pastor had a sexual affair with his wife and that he defrauded zobrist charity of all we can do to undermine and demean the christian movement in our anti christian culture personal moral failures is especially damaging the clergy abuse scandals of recent years have dominated headlines and caused many church members to consider leaving the church. We cannot know how many non-believers have rejected the gospel because of the failings of those who preach and represent it. Joshua seven tells the story of israel's defeat in the first battle of i. This was an enemy far less powerful than the fortified city of jericho they had just conquered nonetheless. The jewish troops were routed and the hearts of the people melted and became as water joshua and the elders of israel complained to god for allowing their defeat. But the lord replied get up. Why have you fallen on your face. Israel has sinned. They have transgressed my covenant that i commanded them god identified a man named aken who's greed led him to keep objects. God had forbidden. When this sin was confessed purged the nation was able to defeat. I and continue. Its conquest of the promised land if we are defeated by perhaps it's because we are harboring the sin of aken. This fact does not mean that godliness guarantees health wealth and success from job to jesus. The bible is filled with stories of innocent suffering. But it does mean that we must seek personal integrity if we would make a public impact for the gospel if we are one person in private and another in public the private will inevitably become public. My purpose is not to laden any of us with guilt or call us to an impossible standard rather it is to close this week's discussion of biblical morality by inviting us to seek to be what we wish others to see. If you and i will ask the holy spirit each day to show us what we need to confess. He will answer our prayers if we will then confess what comes to our minds. Our father will forgive us and cleanses from all unrighteousness if we will spend time with god in his word and worship we will position ourselves to be molded by god's spirit into the character of son if we will settle for nothing less than godliness we will manifest godliness and when the world rights our legacy. It will honor our lord. I was in a restaurant the other day when a song by chris young came over the speaker. Its lyrics. Arrested my attention as he prayed. I wanna be a good man a do like i should man. I wanna be the kind of man. The mirror likes to see. I wanna be a strong man and admit that i was wrong man.

Bill Maris is putting a billion dollars to work at the intersection of technology and Life sciences, where he sees the biggest problems that need solving as we emerge from the pandemic and how he's putting his money to work at fund section 32 all of that in a moment, But first, let's take a look at the markets with our own pretty Gupta pretty. What are you tracking today? Well, Emily a risk off day in the market you really saw in the stock market because of the two sides to extremes of that recovery, trade your very Economically sensitive small cap stocks and, of course, your big tech growth stocks both in the red today and that's really where you're starting to see that large breath of selling really taking the S and P 500 down with it down 0.3%. Where's the money going right into Treasurys. Those yields dropping about four basis points. But that is not the trend that you've seen this month. I'm very much an intraday basis, because this month you've seen that actually diverge. You've seen growth out performance those economically sensitive batch those small caps that were rallying so much after Joe Biden's election after the fighter vaccine announcement back in November. This month, not doing so well. And really you're saying trying to see that divergence, signaling while there is a little bit of a safety trade here now why? What is the driver between this and this is really where I want to point to the 10 year yield because it is actually playing a role in the stock market. That's that white line in the middle, and you can really see that the excuse me It's the yellow one. You can really see that the Russell 2000 and the NASDAQ are both moving in tandem. Just as the 10 year yield is as well, So as you see the yield dip, it really starts to impact the selling that you see in those two indexes, Emily All right, Pretty thanks. So much for the roundup. Meantime, Jeff Bezos has blue origin, has picked an 18 year old student to fly to space with the Amazon founder and two others next week on the company's first crewed mission Blue Origin, saying Oliver Damon will be the youngest person To fly to space, if all goes to plan blue origin, saying the anonymous bidder who agreed to pay $28 million for the seat, has a scheduling conflict and will fly later. To bring in Bloomberg Tech senior executive editor of Global Tech Coverage Brad Stone for more So, Brad, everybody knew the date was July 20th. That is what this bidder bid on. What happened here? Boy, Emily, You know, there's a very little about this, this billionaire race to space that has been normal over the past few months. I mean, first, he had bezoza announcing he was going to go first on New Shepard despite the fact that Blue origin employees two NASA astronauts on the payroll, then Richard Branson kind of beating him to sub orbital space last week. So maybe it's not unusual that things once again are kind of screwy, but right. They held an auction for that fourth seat on the new shepherd. They're blasting off on Tuesday. Somebody paid $28 million to go to space with the world's richest guy, and now they're saying that he has a scheduling conflict. It doesn't really add up, but the bottom line is that it's moved to kind of the second highest bidder. That is this 18 year old or at least his family, and now he's going to make history in a way by being the youngest person to go to space. Right. So as I understand it, this boy this 18 year olds father actually was bidding for that seat that ultimately went for $28 Million and Blue origin, says he chose his son. To fly in his stead. Oliver Damon. I understand he's planning to study physics in college next year in the Netherlands. Who is he? Boy. I mean, I think you've you've you've essentially said everything we know about his biography you know, his father is is a prominent Dutch private equity investor. And, um, you know, they didn't even think that they were kind of in the running and here they are the second runner up, and he's having this big moment in the sun, or at least in sub orbital space next Tuesday. And you know, looking at this Oliver's instagram account. You know, he's a kid. I don't let will certainly be interesting with Jeff Pa's house, Mark Bezos, his brother, Wally Funk, who will become the oldest person ever. To go to space, all of them on board together. I mean, you know, what do you make of the fact that Richard Branson had a successful launch? Over the weekend? Jeff Bezos thought I believe he was going to be first the first of the billionaires to fly on their own craft to space. But he'll be second though. I'm sure you know again last but not least right? What are your expectations? For the event. Well, I mean, first of all, I don't think Bezoza really viewed it as a race with Branson. I mean, he picked July 20th because it's the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, and it wasn't It wasn't to beat anyone out of the gate. And he you know, Wally Funk was a member of the Mercury 13. These female astronauts that didn't get to fly, you know, so she fulfills a lifelong goal. And now with Oliver is the youngest person to go to space. I mean basis for bezoza. This is symbolic right? He wants to reinvigorate interest in space faring. Sense of swashbuckling adventure, So I think this is more kind of a symbol, and it's also really a symbol of the remarkable trust he has in this company, blue origin because he's really putting himself out there as a bit of a guinea pig and no human being has ever flown on this thing, So it's really breath taking it away. And I think for Tuesday, you know, seeing his smiling face popping out of the Out of the crew capsule. You know if and when it returns safely, I think it's going to be an important moment for blue origin for Bastos himself, and probably for people to interest in space travel. Absolutely well, We're all hoping for a safe and successful launch, and we'll be talking about this among guessing every day until that happens.

"Back to Limerick Technology? I'm Emily Chang in San Francisco That was Jeff possess and Wally Funk blue origin, unveiling the third crew member of the mission that will head To the stars. July 20th six decades after completing astronaut trading, 82 year old Wally Funk will be joining Jeff Bastos and his brother mark aboard the new Shepard and blasting off from the West Texas desert. Joining us now at all the mission. Details are spaceman at Ludlow and Is such a heartwarming video that blue origin shared their What do we know about Wally Funk? I know she was training as an astronaut 60 years ago, and she never got to go to space. But now she was exactly exactly at 82 years old should be the oldest person to go into space. It has such an incredible life in the late fifties and early sixties, she was part of the Mercury 13 basically initiative. By NASA to prove that women could go into space alongside their male astronaut colleagues. But the program was shut down and she never did go into space. Despite completing the official NASA training over the cause of her life. She flew more than 19,000 hours as a pilot and taught 3000 people how to fly. So it's It's just incredibly A story of somebody that was so close earlier in her life going in space now at the age of 82 actually being able to do it, even if it's just for a few minutes of weightlessness. Now talk to us about what these astronauts are doing to prepare for this mission. I mean, has Wally Funk been eating her Wheaties? What is Jeff Bezos eating for breakfast? I mean, what do they need to do to prepare? To do this. I mean, in truth, we don't really know. We know that they're going to turn up for three days ahead of the launch. Do some last minute training. Blue origin told me on Thursday that all of the astronauts or all of the pilots and the mission all compliant with the requirements that blue origin is, you know, I basically asked with respect. Has Wally Funk passed the medical in order to go up into space? Have the other astronauts and that's what blue origin told me that they are fit enough and meet the criterion of blue origin set in order for them to undergo this mission. Now we know there are six seeds right on the rocket, and, uh, they still haven't revealed the auction winner. Correct. So do we have any more information about who's going to fill those three other seats? So we still think there are only four going up. Even though there are six seats before Wally Funk was announced, We thought that the other seat that was not the auction winner would be a trained professional astronaut somebody that was either currently a national or perhaps recently retired. That's not been the case, so it's It's Jeff Bezos, his brother, Mark Bezos, Wally Funk, and we still awaiting to find out who that auction winner is. Remember. They paid $28 million for that seat, so hopefully you know it's worth their while the launch goes ahead, but it's still a mystery. They say they're long veil it in the weeks before the launch, which is July 20th. Do we know for sure Those last two seats won't be filled. They're going to keep those empty. What I'm hearing from large in is that they'll keep the meant him. Remember, there's no controls up on the inside the capsule. There's no sort of buttons to press you simply recline back a little bit, stare out the window to take it all in. You know, under six stream force and aerodynamic stress, And in that moment at the common lines, 62 miles above Earth, the officially recognized boundary of space. Just four minutes of weightlessness is Jeff Bezos says before you sort of slowly trickle back down to Earth under parachute. Sounds easy. Gosh, I'm stressed, thinking about Emily.

"And Rory O. Neill, Our NBC News radio reporter joins us right now and Roy. It looks like some folks are going to be traveling into space and there's going to be an auction. Coming up this weekend on taking a trip. Into space. Tell us about that. Good morning, Jack. It's not just anybody. It's Jeff Bezoza, the billionaire founder of Amazon and owner of this rocket company, Blue Origin, will take the first manned flight of the New Shepard rocket on July 20th and is auctioning off the chance for you to sit next to him. This auction has been online for a couple of weeks. Now, the number already up to $4.8 million. The auction goes live tomorrow and whatever the final number will be, Then they'll bring the hammer down on on that auction, but just keep in mind for more than for about five million bucks or more. The whole flight is only about 10 minutes long. 10 minutes long and by the way, Rory O Neill joining us on the achievement Credit Union W F L A hotline and you know, Rory, I got to think this is an investment not just for that 10 minute flight. That's 10 minutes that you have the ear of jet basis. I don't know how loud things are going to be in there, but you could create a lifelong friend and that is worthwhile. That's a good investment. That's pretty good, too. Yeah, I was thinking, you know if there's a terrible tragedy, God forbid. Your name will be lost in the headlines. That's true going to say Jeff Bezos. Others killed so that could be an issue as well. You know, the thing that blows my mind is 4.8 million. Whatever this ends up being 10 million or anything like that. That's pocket change to Jeff Bezoza. Why is he auctioning this thing to raise money? I mean, is a charitable thing or what? Actually, it is a charitable thing. Blue origin has its own charity to encourage more teenagers to get into the stem sciences, the science, math, engineering and technology so it helps promote stem education for Children. So only 10 minutes long. What's going to happen in that 10 minutes? Yeah. So you basically fly up for about four minutes and then come parachuting down for the rest of it. The nice thing is this Do Shephard Rocket has the biggest windows of any rocket to launch into space, so you'll get a heck of a view granted at the view of Texas. So that's it, That's all you see. That's all. Yeah, well, you got up to the edge of space, by the way, so you'll see the curvature of the earth and you know you'll you'll see space. But just for a few seconds. That's lame. Yeah, and that many million dollars, but It's a good thing. So it is being launched in Texas and not here. Cape Canaveral, Huh? Right. It's Yeah. Another strike against this whole thing is that it's launching in Texas. So we should say Blue origin does have a full operation that Cape Canaveral for for other missions that they're developing in orbit. So they do have a Florida presence. 10 minutes isn't even enough time for carte service. You can't even have a beer in that. Maybe one. So maybe you could have one. I could get a few more data that hasn't it? I'm so I'm guessing whoever is going to be sitting next to Jeff Bezos is going to be somebody who's pretty wealthy in their own right. Right, and Bezoza did announce he's bringing his brother Mark, So I guess gets to go fly free. That's why everyone's actually donating the money. They want to go hang with Mark Bezos. Right? Yeah, I doubt that. But it's a fundraiser. We'll see if it's all tax deductible. I haven't figured that part out yet. Maybe maybe that makes it worthwhile. It's true. When is the auction going to be held? Well, The auction is tomorrow, so it's been building up online for a couple of weeks. That's how we got to 4.8 Million already, but they will bring the hammer down tomorrow. The flight is scheduled for January. July 20th so you don't have long to get ready only about Five or six weeks. So this flight is coming up soon? Yeah, I'd love to do that. But I don't You really You wouldn't get distractive tiny little thing, right? No, thanks. Imagine if you drop $7 million and then you get sick and throw up in the 10 minutes. That on Bezos, Bezos probably make you get out. Get out. Go should get the parachute. You're out. Yes, forget about it. And if your handle it as well as my prime delivery packages, I'm not sure it's going to be a soft landing. You have that problem to, uh all right.
