Jeff Bezos: The billionaire returns after fulfilling his dream of traveling to space on his private ship, the New Shepard

Billionaire Jeff Bezos returned to Earth after fulfilling his dream of space travel Tuesday on the first manned flight of his New Shepard rocket ship.

Accompanied by his brother, Mark Bezos, Wally Funk, an 82-year-old pioneer in the space race, and an 18-year-old student, Bezos spent a few minutes at an altitude of 107 kilometers beyond the Karman Line, the line between Earth and space.

Everyone traveled to space in a capsule with large windows, allowing them to see stunning views of Earth.

The astronauts were able to contemplate the planet from space through these large windows that occupy a third of the cabin space. “It’s all black here,” Funk said over the live audio feed from the capsule.
