When you become wildly successful in your day job, you're provided the opportunity to play around a bit and pursue other passions. Jeff Bezos, who hasn't done so bad as the founder of Amazon, is doing just that with his spaceflight services company Blue Origin. Bezos showed an interest in space since he was a child. He once said "I used a large portion of my elementary school free-time hours not only watching 'Star Trek' — the original, of course — but also playing 'Star Trek'" on the computer." After he was named his high school class valedictorian, he was interviewed by the Miami Herald and said he wanted to build "space hotels, amusement parks and colonies for 2 million or 3 million people who would be in orbit."
