Amazon founder Jeff Bezos announced Tuesday his Blue Origin rocket company would become the latest privatized space venture to take over one of NASA's former Cape Canaveral launch sites.
Bezos hopes to launch from the new property by 2020, but his company faces some stiff competition from just down the road.
Elon Musk's SpaceX already set up shop on Florida's Space Coast after outbidding Blue Origin for a launchpad at the Kennedy Space Center last year.
