On Tuesday, Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos and three other crew members, including his brother Mark Bezos, Wally Funk, and teen Oliver Daemen, launched into space on the New Shepherd rocket from a desert site near Van Horn, Texas.
Due to the prevalence of zero gravity, the crew can be seen floating and flipping in space in a new video posted by Jeff Bezos. As soon as the engines stop down at the edge of space, the crew can be seen unbuckling themselves. They began floating about the space capsule as soon as they removed their straps. The Amazon founder toasted the successful landing of New Shepard's first crewed mission with champagne.
Jeff Bezos launched Blue Origin with the goal of establishing a future in which millions of people live and work in space to benefit Earth. In order to save Earth, humanity will need to develop, explore, discover new energy and material resources, and relocate industries that are harmful to the planet into space. Blue Origin is currently working on this by producing partially and fully reusable launch vehicles that are safe, low-cost, and capable of serving the demands of all civic, commercial, and security customers.
