Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin First Human Flight Cover
Jeff Bezos soared past the edge of space on Tuesday, July 20, 2021. It was the first launch of Blue Origin’s New Shepard reusable launch vehicle with humans aboard. Liftoff took place at 9:12 a.m. EDT from Blue Origin’s Launch Site One in West Texas. On board the ship were, in addition to Bezos, his brother, Mark Bezos, Wally Funk, an 82-year-old aviation pioneer, and Oliver Daemen, an 18-year-old student from the Netherlands. Thus the launch set a record for both the oldest and youngest person to fly to space. Bezos’ feat came just nine days after another billionaire, Richard Branson, also flew to the edge of space, on a similar sub-orbital trajectory. Broadcasts will continue after the rocket’s landing, Blue Origin said in a statement on July 12. The company's official Twitter feed will also be sharing mission updates throughout the day today.
