Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin capsule completes successful flight

World Today


“Best day ever!” Those were the words of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos as he touched down in the West Texas desert on Tuesday. 

On this 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, a capsule belonging to Bezos’ company Blue Origin made it to the edge of space and back. 

This successful mission and one by Virgin Galactic’s Richard Branson earlier this month pave the way for what those entrepreneurs and others hope is a bright future of space tourism.
