Jeff Bezos is officially the richest person on the planet thanks to the success of Amazon – but his bold vision extends to space and even time itself.With Amazon's share price up nearly 60 percent during the past year, the personal wealth of the company's 54-year-old founder has doubled to more than $110 billion, while the position of Microsoft founder Bill Gates slipped to second place with a net worth of about $90 billion, according to Forbes magazine's annual billionaires list published last Tuesday.Bezos' fortune shot up to $112 billion, Forbes said, after a 59 percent rise in Amazon shares over the past 12 months that put him way ahead of Gates.So, Bezos went from being a boy with a love for how things work to the man who built Amazon.com into an internet powerhouse.Bezos has invested some $42 million in building a 150-meter-tall clock designed to keep time for 10,000 years.Bezos is also behind private space exploration operation Blue Origin, into which he usually invests money from selling Amazon shares.The Post, and Bezos himself, have been targeted by Trump.
