The best part of the above sentence is that I’m not kidding. Bezos, worth around $24 billion, can afford the operation. He’s out hunting for F-1 engines, the flame emitters that powered the Saturn V rockets into space. As you surely recall, Saturn V rockets put a human on the moon.
Bezos, doing precisely what you would do if you had the funds, is out searching for the returned-to-earth engine remnants of the rockets. He has found, according to his personal post on the expedition, an “incredible sculpture garden of twisted F-1 engines that tells the story of a fiery and violent end, one that serves testament to the Apollo program.”
Unlike Jeff’s investment in 37 Signals, it seems doubtful that this is a profitable venture, but at the same, who gives a damn? Check the clip for a bath to the bottom of the ocean in search of historic scrap metal:
