For the first time, the rocket landed vertically!
Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, founded a commercial space flight company, Blue Origin.
Blue Origin made history as their rocket flew to space, and landed vertically. This was the first reusable rocket landing!
The Blue Origin is focusing on space tourism.
“We now know without any doubt that you can build a reusable rocket booster,” Jeff Bezos told CNN.
“This is the first of what will be many test flights. Over the next couple of years we’re gonna fly this vehicle many, many times, and then when we’re highly confident in it, we’re gonna start taking people up in the space with it,” he added.
