Jeff Bezos Rides To Space Aboard His Blue Origin's New Shepard

WORLD Team Latestly|

The wealthiest man on the planet Jeff Bezos spent a few minutes in space on July 20 on Blue Origin's first human mission. It was a key moment for a fledgling industry seeking to make the final frontier accessible to elite tourists. "A very happy group of people in this capsule," said Bezos after the spaceship touched down in the west Texas desert following a 10-minute hop to the Karman line and back. The four-member crew exchanged high-fives and hugged family who came to meet them at the landing site. Earlier, the New Shepard capsule reached at an altitude of 66.5 miles (107 kilometers), allowing the passengers to experience weightlessness while admiring the curve of the Earth. "It's dark up here," said barrier-breaking female aviator Wally Funk, who joined Bezos, his brother and 18-year-old Dutchman Oliver Daemen, who became the youngest ever astronaut. Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson made the voyage on July 11, narrowly beating the Amazon magnate in their battle of the billionaires. Watch the video to know more.
