Bezos and the crew of his Blue Origin spaceship may not receive certification that they qualify as astronauts

In a move that will prevent billionaire space explorers from becoming real astronauts, the authorities in the United States have placed new restrictions on the definition of the profession of “astronaut”.

The new rules of the Federal Aviation Authority in the United States stipulate that the astronaut is the person who plays a role within the framework of the crew of the flight into space and contributes to achieving safety and security during the flight.

And these new additions made this definition not apply to Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson from the point of view of the US administration.

These changes are the first to be made to the Wings program to award the FAA astronaut title and badge, which began in 2004.
