Blue Origin to fly 100,000 postcards from UAE pupils into space – The National

Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin will fly 100,000 postcards written by UAE pupils to space and return them to their senders with a “flown to space” stamp.

To celebrate the UAE’s Golden Jubilee, the children drew their vision for the country’s next 50 years on the postcards. These included futuristic cars, going to the Moon, landing on Mars and planting the national flag on another planet.

A New Shepard suborbital flight by the billionaire Amazon founder's space tourism company will carry the messages to space next year.
