18-year-old Oliver Demon from the Netherlands receives the “Best Short Speech on a Plane in Space” award Who was part of the Blue Origin Startup group Plane Into space earlier this week. Approximately On the 10-minute flight, Daemon told Amazon founder Jeff Bezos as if slandering his billionaire ears: He never bought anything on Amazon.

A Interview With Reuters on Friday, Damon described his first flight into space and when the call came in, he asked if he was interested in the conversations he had with his crew. That includes Bezos, his brother Mark Bezos and 82-year-old pilot Wally Funk. Timon, who is the CEO of a private equity firm in the Netherlands, became the youngest person to fly into space, while Funk became the oldest.

Dean also has the surprise of Bezos who made him one of the richest people in the world by the Amazon Empire.

“I told Jeff I never really bought anything from Amazon,” Damon told Reuters. “He said,‘ Oh, wow, like this [been] long time [since] I heard someone say that. ‘”

Bezos thanked me for considering it “Every Amazon employee and every Amazon customer” For making the flight possible after he and his crew returned to Earth, Demon’s comments may have been a little worse. However, it’s nice (and funny) to hear that someone was openly with him. Bezos has no doubt that the Amazon is God’s gift to mankind and he has enough people, so it’s a pleasure to watchouths set him straight.

Timon didn’t want to go on the plane with Bezos and crew at first. He was offered the opportunity after winning an online auction for the seat, the identity of which is not yet known, and he paid $ 28 million for it., They said they could not go “Planning Conflicts.” Timon, who had participated in the auction and had already secured a spot on the second flight, later advanced to the list. His father, Jose Damon, The seat was paid for.

According to Damon, his family did not pay anything close to the amount the mysterious auctioneer paid for the opportunity.

“We didn’t even pay $ 28 million, but they chose me because I’m young and I’m a pilot, and I already know a lot about this,” he said.

Dean will begin his studies Utrecht University In September, he said he was not sure what he wanted to do professionally but would consider focusing on space travel. He added that his fellow passengers were “having a lot of fun and everyone is down to earth.” Consider Damon referring to a man who wants to be stupid Move all polluting industry into space, I had no idea I had sold it.

Congratulations on the award for that big little talk.
