The Wall Street Journal: Jeff Bezos expected to announce new space plans this week

The burgeoning space-transportation company owned by Amazon.com Inc. AMZN, +0.11% chairman Jeff Bezos, this week is expected to announce some customers and new initiatives, the latest step toward its long-term goal of building rockets powerful enough to penetrate deep into the solar system, according to industry officials.

The moves by the typically secretive Bezos, these officials said, are anticipated to disclose further details about Blue Origin LLC’s strategy to create a family of reusable rockets initially intended to take tourists on suborbital voyages, then propel spacecraft into Earth’s orbit and eventually blast both manned and robotic missions to the Moon and various planets.
