Abstract:
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.

Lifeboat Foundation Guardian Winner Jeff Bezos Donates One Million to Lifeboat Foundation Dream Project Winner Teachers in Space

Gardnerville, NV | Posted on July 30th, 2021

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.

That money went to Blue Origin’s nonprofit organization Club for the Future, which disbursed a large chunk of it, including $1 million for Teachers in Space, led by our Liz Kennick.

Previously, Lifeboat Foundation provided funds to Teachers in Space to fly three new classroom experiments on the Perlan II stratospheric glider in Minden, Nevada. These experiments were a big success.

Our Education Board will be reviewing Teachers in Space’s plans to spend this one million dollars. We look forward to helping out with our large board. (Liz Kennick is also on this board, of course.)

Lifeboat Foundation is often in contact with top leaders in the space industry such as Elon Musk, Gwynne Shotwell, and Richard Branson. We praise Jeff Bezos for caring about the future of humanity!

Jeff said, “For better or worse, it is really not a part of our culture to look at things defensively. We rarely say, ‘Oh my God, we’ve got to do something about that existential threat.’ Maybe one day we’ll become extinct because of that deficiency in our nature.”
