Billionaire and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has made it into space, riding his own company’s rocket. It was Blue Origin’s first flight with people on board.
The capsule touched down on the desert floor in remote West Texas after the 10-minute flight.
After returning to Earth, Bezos said he got to see just how fragile the planet’s atmosphere is. The Amazon founder blasted into space with his younger brother, an 18-year-old from the Netherlands — the youngest person ever to go into space – and an 82-year-old aviation pioneer from Texas.
