The one who paid $28 million to join Jeff Bezos on a visit to space is unable to do so because they're busy, the private rocket company has announced.

Instead, the primary ever paying customer of Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin rocket firm are going to be 18-year-old Oliver Daemen, it said. also, as being Mr Bezos’s first paying customer, he also will be the youngest person on space.

He will join Wally Funk, who is aged 82 and can become the oldest ever person in space. Mr Bezos and his brother Mark will structure the remainder of the passengers on the New Shepard rocket.

Blue Origin announced quite a month ago that the auction for a seat on the trip had finished at $28 million. But it's refused to mention who the winner was, whilst the time of launch approached.

That person will “remain anonymous at this time”, Blue Origin said in its new announcement.

And they have “chosen to fly a future New Shepard mission thanks to scheduling conflicts”, the corporate also said.

It didn't say how it had chosen Mr Daeman instead. It also refused to reveal what proportion he had purchased his ticket.

But it said that the trip would “fulfill a lifelong dream for Oliver”, who is currently on a niche year obtaining his private license before starting studied at the University of Utrecht this September.

Blue Origin also announced that Club for the longer term – its non-profit, which is tasked with distributing the cash from the auction – has given $1 million each to 19 different organisations, which it said were performing on projects “to support the longer term of living and dealing in space”.

“We thank the auction winner for his or her generous support of Club for the longer term and are honored to welcome Oliver to fly with us on New Shepard,” said Bob Smith, CEO of Blue Origin. “This marks the start of economic operations for brand spanking new Shepard, and Oliver represents a replacement generation of individuals who will help us build a road to space.”

The four will begin on 20 July, taking a brief flight up to space before returning right down to the bottom . Blue Origin has argued that it'll be the primary commercial spaceflight of this type , because Richard Branson’s trip last week doesn't truly count – and has also criticized Virgin Galactic for its “smaller windows”.
