Jeff Bezos sure knows how to make an entrance.
The billionaire Amazon CEO and founder of the private spaceflight company Blue Origin joined social media platform Instagram Thursday (July 20) in a truly novel way: with an aerial tour of Blue Origin’s rocket factory in Florida as a sunglasses-wearing Bezos relaxed on the roof in a lawn chair.
“Rocket Factory Coming Soon,” a sign in Bezos’ hand reads.
Blue Origin is building the rocket factory in Exploration Park near NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The 750,000 square-foot facility is where Blue Origin will build its reusable New Glenn rocket, a massive 270-foot-tall (82 meters) booster for orbital launches from the nearby Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
AeroDoor International were awarded the contract for the two large door systems on the Blue Origin building back in Fall 2016. Our contract consists of the design, manufacturing and installation of bottom rolling doors that will be 135ft x 60ft and 35ft x 45ft.
More information on this project and our scope of work will follow.
