Jeff Bezos Launches Into Space With Blue Origin Crew
Amazon and Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos and three crewmates are blasted off into space for a short 10-minute sub-orbital flight that the company hopes will be a giant leap forward for the business of commercial space travel.
It is the first launch of Blue Origin's New Shepard spacecraft to carry to carry passengers after 15 successful test flights. After liftoff from the company's West Texas launch site, it will rocket to an altitude of more than 62 miles above the Earth, where the passengers will experience about three minutes of weightlessness. 7-20-2021
