  • Jeff Bezos on historic Blue Origin launch: First step to build road to space

    3:37

    Jeff Bezos is now an astronaut. The Blue Origin founder and Amazon and his brother Mark Bezos spoke with CNBC's Morgan Brennan about the flight and Blue Origin's plans for the future of space travel. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:

    Jeff Bezos said Blue Origin’s first crewed spaceflight on Tuesday represented one step toward the company’s mission of expanding to a point where people live and work in space.

    “This is a tiny little step of what Blue Origin is going to do. What we’re really trying to do is build reusable space vehicles. It’s the only way to build a road to space, and we need to build a road to space so that our children can build the future,” Bezos told CNBC’s Morgan Brennan.

    “If you want to be a space entrepreneur today, you have to do everything from the beginning. There’s no real infrastructure that’s at an affordable cost. So that’s what we have to do, is build that kind of infrastructure and then future generations will get to rest on top of it,” Bezos added.

    Bezos flew as one of the four passengers on the inaugural crew launch of its New Shepard rocket and capsule. The founder of Blue Origin, Bezos sees New Shepard as a pathfinder for his company’s other, larger scale projects.

    “This suborbital tourism mission lets us practice,” Bezos said. “We need to do that over and over and over and get as good at running space vehicles as we are as a civilization at running commercial airliners.”

    Beyond its space tourism rocket New Shepard, his company is also working on a massive orbital rocket called New Glenn, a stable of next-generation rocket engines, and a crewed lunar lander. Bezos emphasized that “reusable space vehicles,” like New Shepard which launches and lands, are key to Blue Origin’s goal.

    More time for Blue Origin

    Bezos emphasized that he now has more time to spend focused on his space venture, which he founded in 2000.

    “Since I stepped down as the CEO of Amazon, I have a lot of time to dedicate to this vision. so I’m going to split my time between this and the Bezos Earth Fund, which is the climate sustainability foundation,” Bezos said.

    Additionally, his view from space on Tuesday meant Bezos got a first hand look at “how tiny this planet’s atmosphere is.”

    “It’s really this small thing supporting all life. So we need to take all polluting industry, all heavy industries and move it off Earth. This could take many decades, but that’s what we can do,” Bezos added.

    Going up again

    Floating inside of New Shepard’s capsule for a couple minutes in microgravity Bezos said was a “beautiful” experience.

    “It felt so comfortable and natural,” Bezos said.

    Asked by CNBC’s Brennan if he’s “going to do it again,” Bezos replied emphatically.

    “Hell yeah!” Bezos said.

    Jeff Bezos‘ space travel company, Blue Origin, carried Canadian actor William Shatner, who at the age of 90, became the oldest person in space. He was joined by three others — two of them paying customers — aboard a Blue Origin capsule. It was the company’s second launch with a crew.

    Bezos was on the debut flight in July, along with his brother and the youngest and oldest people to ever fly in space. Shatner will break that upper threshold by six years.

    “I’ve heard about space for a long time now. I’m taking the opportunity to see it for myself. What a miracle,” Shatner said in a statement.

  • Jeff Bezos and Blue Origin crew return as astronauts after historic launch

    4:00

    CNBC's Squawk on the Street team watches Blue Origin land its booster and Jeff Bezos and his crew float back down to Earth's surface in their capsule. The crew for Tuesday's flightis Bezos, who founded Blue Origin and retail giant Amazon, his brother, Mark, aerospace pioneer Wally Funk and Dutch teenager Oliver Daeman. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:

    For 10 minutes and 10 seconds on Tuesday, Jeff Bezos wasn’t the richest man on Earth.

    His Blue Origin company launched him into spaceflight history on Tuesday. Its first crewed New Shepard rocket blasted off from the Texas desert for the brief flight, also carrying his brother and the oldest and youngest people to ever have flown in space.

    “Best day ever!” Bezos said after touchdown.

    The capsule carrying the Blue Origin crew accelerated to more than three times the speed of sound before it reached beyond the 80 kilometer boundary (about 262,000 feet) the U.S. uses to mark the edge of space. The crew capsule reached an altitude of 107 kilometers (351,210 feet), and the rocket hit a top speed of 2,233 mph during the launch.

    The crew floated in microgravity for a couple minutes, before the capsule returned and landed under a set of parachutes to end the mission after 10 minutes and 10 seconds.

    The launch marked Blue Origin’s entrance into the market of private spaceflight, joining Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic — its direct competitor in the sector of suborbital tourism — and Elon Musk’s SpaceX.

    “This is a tiny little step of what Blue Origin is going to do,” Bezos told CNBC’s Morgan Brennan after he touched down. “What we’re really trying to do is build reusable space vehicles. It’s the only way to build a road to space, and we need to build a road to space so that our children can build the future.”

    Branson congratulated Bezos after the mission.

    “Well done,” Branson tweeted. “Impressive! Very best to all the crew from me and all the team at @virgingalactic”

    In addition to his singular net worth, Bezos, 57, is also the only space founder to ride the first crewed flight of his company. While SpaceX and Virgin Galactic have launched astronauts before, Bezos is the first to put himself on the inaugural crew flight.

    Also on the flight were Wally Funk, 82, and Oliver Daemen, 18 — respectively the oldest and youngest humans to ever fly in space — and Bezos’ brother, Mark, 53.

    Bezos invited his brother and Funk, a female aerospace pioneer, to join the flight. Daemen was a late addition. His seat was originally part of a public auction, but the auction’s winner, an anonymous person who bid $28 million to fly with Bezos, was unable to make the July 20 launch date. Daemen’s father, Joes, CEO of a private equity firm in the Netherlands, was also a bidder, with Daemen scheduled to fly on Blue Origin’s second crew launch as a paying passenger. When the mystery bidder backed out, the company moved Daemen up to the first launch.

    Tuesday’s launch also came on another historic milestone — the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

  • Jeff Bezos on spaceflight: This achievement was a team effort

    3:18

    The New Shepard Blue Origin crew held a press conference after its historic flight to space. The crew takes questions. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:

    Jeff Bezos said Blue Origin’s first crewed spaceflight on Tuesday represented one step toward the company’s mission of expanding to a point where people live and work in space.

    “This is a tiny little step of what Blue Origin is going to do. What we’re really trying to do is build reusable space vehicles. It’s the only way to build a road to space, and we need to build a road to space so that our children can build the future,” Bezos told CNBC’s Morgan Brennan.

    “If you want to be a space entrepreneur today, you have to do everything from the beginning. There’s no real infrastructure that’s at an affordable cost. So that’s what we have to do, is build that kind of infrastructure and then future generations will get to rest on top of it,” Bezos added.

    Bezos flew as one of the four passengers on the inaugural crew launch of its New Shepard rocket and capsule. The founder of Blue Origin, Bezos sees New Shepard as a pathfinder for his company’s other, larger scale projects.

    “This suborbital tourism mission lets us practice,” Bezos said. “We need to do that over and over and over and get as good at running space vehicles as we are as a civilization at running commercial airliners.”

    Beyond its space tourism rocket New Shepard, his company is also working on a massive orbital rocket called New Glenn, a stable of next-generation rocket engines, and a crewed lunar lander. Bezos emphasized that “reusable space vehicles,” like New Shepard which launches and lands, are key to Blue Origin’s goal.

  • Watch Blue Origin send Jeff Bezos to space in first historic launch

    3:30

    Jeff Bezos is the world's most wealthy person, and now the first to hold that title while not on the Earth. Blue Origin launched him into spaceflight history on Tuesday, with Bezos riding his company's first crewed New Shepard rocket, alongside his brother and the oldest and youngest people to ever have flown in space. The launch marked Blue Origin's entrance into the market of private spaceflight, joining Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic and Elon Musk's SpaceX.

  • This is what Jeff Bezos did while in space | Blue Origin Launch

    1:58

    This is a video of Jeff Bezos, his brother Mark Bezos, Wally Funk, and Oliver Daemen in Space.

    In this video, you can see Jeff Bezos and his fellow astronauts experiencing zero-gravity right after they arrived in space.

    On July 20 Blue Origin flew its billionaire founder Jeff Bezos and the other three astronauts to space aboard the New Shepard rocket. This was Blue Origin's first flight with astronauts on board.

    This Is Why Jeff Bezos Hates Elon Musk
    ► Subscribe:



    It’s a space race, and not just between countries. Two of the world’s top billionaires have been in a 15+ year feud with each other. Elon Musk has SpaceX, and Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos runs Blue Origin, and both have been in a race to get people to the edge of space and beyond.

    But it turns out it’s not just these guys trying to get to the Kármán line first, and it looks like another billionaire is about to beat them to it! And where is NASA in all this rocket rivalry? Let’s find out...

    We are on social media:

  • Jeff Bezos returns to Earth after successful Blue Origin space launch

    2:19

    Blue Origin and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his crew exit the capsule after returning to Earth after their historic space launch. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:

    For 10 minutes and 10 seconds on Tuesday, Jeff Bezos wasn’t the richest man on Earth.

    His Blue Origin company launched him into spaceflight history on Tuesday. Its first crewed New Shepard rocket blasted off from the Texas desert for the brief flight, also carrying his brother and the oldest and youngest people to ever have flown in space.

    “Best day ever!” Bezos said after touchdown.

    The capsule carrying the Blue Origin crew accelerated to more than three times the speed of sound before it reached beyond the 80 kilometer boundary (about 262,000 feet) the U.S. uses to mark the edge of space. The crew capsule reached an altitude of 107 kilometers (351,210 feet), and the rocket hit a top speed of 2,233 mph during the launch.

    The crew floated in microgravity for a couple minutes, before the capsule returned and landed under a set of parachutes to end the mission after 10 minutes and 10 seconds.

    The launch marked Blue Origin’s entrance into the market of private spaceflight, joining Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic — its direct competitor in the sector of suborbital tourism — and Elon Musk’s SpaceX.

    “This is a tiny little step of what Blue Origin is going to do,” Bezos told CNBC’s Morgan Brennan after he touched down. “What we’re really trying to do is build reusable space vehicles. It’s the only way to build a road to space, and we need to build a road to space so that our children can build the future.”

    Branson congratulated Bezos after the mission.

    “Well done,” Branson tweeted. “Impressive! Very best to all the crew from me and all the team at @virgingalactic”

    In addition to his singular net worth, Bezos, 57, is also the only space founder to ride the first crewed flight of his company. While SpaceX and Virgin Galactic have launched astronauts before, Bezos is the first to put himself on the inaugural crew flight.

    Also on the flight were Wally Funk, 82, and Oliver Daemen, 18 — respectively the oldest and youngest humans to ever fly in space — and Bezos’ brother, Mark, 53.

    Bezos invited his brother and Funk, a female aerospace pioneer, to join the flight. Daemen was a late addition. His seat was originally part of a public auction, but the auction’s winner, an anonymous person who bid $28 million to fly with Bezos, was unable to make the July 20 launch date. Daemen’s father, Joes, CEO of a private equity firm in the Netherlands, was also a bidder, with Daemen scheduled to fly on Blue Origin’s second crew launch as a paying passenger. When the mystery bidder backed out, the company moved Daemen up to the first launch.

    Tuesday’s launch also came on another historic milestone — the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

  • Jeff Bezos Blue Origin to send 18-year-old physics student to space

    1:50

    Jeff Bezos' space venture Blue Origin on Thursday revealed that 18-year-old Oliver Daemen will fly in place of the still anonymous $28 million winning bidder of last month's public auction. Daemen will fly to the edge of space with Bezos, his brother Mark Bezos, and legendary aerospace pioneer Wally Funk on Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket scheduled to launch on July 20. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:

    Jeff Bezos’ space venture Blue Origin on Thursday revealed that 18-year-old Oliver Daemen will fly in place of the still-anonymous $28 million winning bidder of last month’s public auction.

    Daemen will fly to the edge of space with the Amazon founder, his brother Mark Bezos, and legendary aerospace pioneer Wally Funk on Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket scheduled to launch on July 20.

    The young physics student takes the place of the auction winner, who Blue Origin said could not fly on the mission “due to scheduling conflicts.” Blue Origin said the auction winner “has chosen to fly on a future New Shepard mission.”

    Blue Origin described Daemen as the “first paying customer” flying on New Shepard, with a spokesperson telling CNBC that “he was a participant in the auction and had secured a seat on the second flight.”

    “We moved him up when this seat on the first flight became available,” Blue Origin said.

    The company confirmed that Daemen is the son of Somerset Capital Partners CEO Joes Daemen, who paid for the seat and chose to fly Oliver instead. Somerset is a Dutch private equity firm based in Oisterwijk, Netherlands, that Joes Daemen founded.

    At 18, Daemen would be the youngest person to fly to space, with Funk, 82, also set to become the oldest person to become an astronaut.

    The spaceflight

    New Shepard, a rocket that carries a capsule to an altitude of more than 340,000 feet, has flown more than a dozen successful test flights without passengers, including one in April at the company’s facility in the Texas desert. It’s designed to carry up to six people and flies autonomously — without needing a pilot. The capsule has massive windows to give passengers a view of the earth below during about three minutes in zero gravity, before returning to Earth.

    Blue Origin’s system launches vertically, and both the rocket and capsule are reusable. The boosters land on a concrete pad at the company’s facility in Van Horn, Texas, while the capsules land using a set of parachutes.

    Bezos founded Blue Origin in 2000 and owns the company, funding it through share sales of his Amazon stock.

    July 20 is notable because it also marks the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

  • NASA Astronaut: Bezos Will Beat Musk In Space Race

    2:23

    Elon Musk has SpaceX. Richard Branson has Virgin Galactic. And Jeff Bezos has Blue Origin. These titans of entrepreneurship are ushering in a new generation of human spaceflight.

    » Subscribe to CNBC Make It.:

    So who’s the most important space entrepreneur? “There are different levels of importance,” Terry Virts — a NASA astronaut who has spent seven months living in space, commanded the International Space Station and completed three spacewalks — tells CNBC Make It via Skype video conversation in Dec.

    As far as getting the public excited about space, “Elon has done a great job with that,” Virts says. ”[Musk] has lots of big visions.”

    Branson’s enthusiasm for space tourism is similarly important, says Virts. “Richard Branson is just fun. … He’s a cool guy. That’s a cool thing, that is going to inspire people,” Virts says.

    But when it comes to Bezos, the founder of Amazon and currently the richest person alive, Virts says, “Jeff Bezos is the real deal. His company is legit.”

    In fact, says Virts, the BE-4 engine Blue Origin is building, “I think is going to be the most important rocket engine of the 21st century. Lots rockets are going to be using it — government rockets, rockets launching telecom satellites and also people,” Virts tells CNBC Make It.

    “In the long run he’s going to really make an an impact on getting to the moon, getting people in space and and really impacting the 21st century space economy,” says Virts.

    Together, the gaggle of elite space entrepreneurs’ companies are building the next generation of human spaceflight.

    “I’ve come to this conclusion recently ... We are at the end of the beginning of space flight and that’s a really good thing,” Virts tells CNBC Make It.

    “The beginning of human spaceflight has been about government, it’s been about Apollo, space shuttle and space station and Soyuz [the Russian spacecraft]. It’s been about nation states having a space program,” he says.

    Now, “we’re moving into a region where companies like SpaceX and especially Blue Origin — they are kind of the underdog ... those companies are so much more innovative, they’re so much faster they’re so much more visionary.”

    Equally important is the fact that Bezos “has got some spare change lying around the couch” that he can invest in his space company, as do Musk and Branson. (Bezos is currently worth $130 billion, Musk is worth $22.2 billion, and Branson is worth $4.9 billion, according to Forbes.)

    “There’s always been smart people with ideas but now they’re smart people with ideas and money,” Virts says. “I think it’s going to be a fundamental shift over the coming years and decades.”

    “I think we are at that phase where, as Winston Churchill said, ‘It’s the end of the beginning.’ And you know the beginning phase of human spaceflight was great — that’s what motivated me to be an astronaut, but I am hopeful that the future will be even better, ” Virts says.

  • Jeff Bezoss Space Flight and What it Means for Earth

    5:20

    #JeffBezos #Climatechange #JeffBezosSpaceFlight

    Jeff Bezos's space flight may have more important implications for Earth and climate change than previously imagined. After 20 years with Blue Origin, Jeff Bezos became the second billionaire astronaut.

    Blue Origin's New Shepard flew 66 miles above the Earth's surface and into space. The trip lasted for about 11 minutes. Blue Origin's flight was historic with the youngest and oldest astronauts to go to space. Most importantly, the crew saw the Earth from space. The Jeff Bezos space launch could have had a profound impact on his awareness.

    In 2020, he launched the Bezos Earth fund which was 10 billion dollars to fight climate change and was the single largest donation announcement of 2020. Despite this, Amazon has a horrible track record when it comes to employee treatment and climate goals.

    Jeff Bezos could have used his money to solve problems on our planet instead of going to space. But what if going to space made him realize the importance of protecting our beautiful planet because it is our home and we only have one.
