Bezos took off in a Blue Origin company’s New Shepard rocket from the desert of West Texas at 6:42 PM IST.
Bezos’s rocket, which went to space, was seen by many people sitting inside the car in the desert of West Texas.
Space flight sending company Blue Origin has congratulated everyone for the success of this historic moment.
Jeff Bezos and his companions went to space 105 km above the Earth.
The capsule was mounted on the front of the New Shepard rocket. There were astronauts in it.
The rocket ship that Bezos and his team took is autonomous, meaning it does not need a pilot. Its capsule has 6 seats, but only 4 of these were filled.
As soon as the rocket reached 80 km above, the capsule separated from it.
When the capsule was coming down at a speed of 26 km/h, the parachutes opened.
The capsule landed on the ground at 6:53 hrs IST.
After the capsule landed, Jeff Bezos kept smiling while sitting inside and shook hands and greeted the people standing there.
Bezos came out of the capsule first. His happiness knew no bounds.
Wally Funk, 82, was also very happy to travel to space.
