Jeff Bezos to Speak at JFK Museum Wednesday

Jeff Bezos will be in Boston on Wednesday.

Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon, will be at the JFK Presidential Library to take part in a daylong symposium. 

The JFK Space Summit will highlight the history that led to the moon landing and examine the future of space exploration. 

U.S. Ambassador Caroline Kennedy, former NASA administrator Charles Bolden and former director of the Johnson Space Center Ellen Ochoa will be there as well. 

Bezos is also the founder of Blue Origin, a privately funded space exploration project. Earlier this month, it was announced that the $2.5 billion New Glenn rocket will be launched in 2021.

The Space Summit will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. National Geographic's documentary "Apollo: Missions to the Moon" will be previewed before its July release.
