Welcome, it's time for the 'World Now'. Bringing you some of the most interesting news from around the globe, I'm Eum Ji-young.
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos will be out of this world next month.
He will be flying to space, for the first human-crewed flight, conducted by his space exploration company Blue Origin.
The flight is planned for July 20th, the anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969.
The departure date is also set for just about two weeks after he steps down as Amazon's CEO on July 5th.
His younger brother, Mark Bezos will also be aboard the flight that is expected to last about 11 minutes and reach more than 60 miles above Earth.
The highest bidder in a charity auction will also be able to book a spot on the spacecraft.
Bezos said on his social media on Monday that "ever since he was five years old, he dreamed of traveling to space".
