Lifeboat Foundation Dream Project Winner Teachers in Space, the leading provider of affordable flight experiment opportunities for classrooms, was awarded one million dollars by Lifeboat Foundation Guardian Award winner Jeff Bezos.
 
Last month, Blue Origin auctioned off a seat on the first crewed flight of its New Shepard suborbital vehicle, which is scheduled to lift off from West Texas on July 20. Guardian Award winner Jeff Bezos himself will be on the flight, and the seat sold for an astronomical price — $28 million.
