Dutch teen astronaut tells Jeff Bezos on space flight that he’s never shopped on Amazon

Belief Dutchies to be controversial about companies. Oliver Daemen, the Dutch 18-year-old that went into house with Jeff Bezos, admitted to the Amazon CEO that he has by no means bought something from the billion-dollar firm.

I wager that was an ungainly ten minutes — which was the full length of the flight. Daemen nonchalantly mentioned to Reuters that “I instructed Jeff, like, I’ve really by no means purchased one thing from Amazon. And he was like, ‘oh, wow, it’s a very long time in the past I heard somebody say that’.” Discuss Dutch directness! 😅

Youngest individual in house

The 18-year-old physics scholar discovered he could be the fourth passenger on the Blue Origin flight per week earlier than take-off. With Daemen on board, the launch had each the youngest and the oldest individual to ever go into house. The latter was 82-year outdated American, Wally Funk.

Daemon and his father had entered an public sale for the place on the spacecraft. He discovered he could be the fourth and remaining passenger after the highest bidder dropped out final minute. The best bid was $28 million, which is nowhere close to what the Dutch teen paid.
