Blue Origin made a successful passenger space launch today. The company’s rocket was launched from West Texas with Jeff Bezos, his brother Mark Bezos, Wally Funk, 82, and teenager Oliver Daemen, 18.
This was an historic launch of a rocket with passengers. The rocket reached the edge of space. They used the New Shepard rocket.
The capsule carrying the Blue Origin crew was moving at three times the speed of sound.
The crew experienced some weightlessness for some time. The rocket booster landed successfully and the capsule landed later after through parachutes.
Blue Origin now joins Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic and Elon Musk’s SpaceX in the space tourism business.
