Venture investor Lane Bess credits his appetite for risk for a successful career in Silicon Valley’s cybersecurity startups. It’s also what’s sending him into outer space. 

Bess is one of six passengers who’ll be soaring to the fringes of outer space thanks to Jeff Bezos’s space-exploration business, Blue Origin. Liftoff for the company’s third manned space flight is scheduled for Saturday from its launch facility in the West Texas desert.
