  • 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.

  • Billionaire Richard Branson launches into space and says, Its the experience of a lifetime

    2:18:06

    #RichardBranson #VirginGalactic #VSSUnity

    Richard Branson is set off to space – becoming the first billionaire to leave the Earth.

    He will be launched in a spacecraft carried by Virgin Galactic’s rocket plane, known as the VSS Unity. It will be the first time that the company has conducted a fully crewed flight to the edge of space, though not the first time people have travelled in the spacecraft.

    Branson is trying to get there shortly before fellow billionaire Jeff Bezos, the recently retired Amazon chief executive. He hopes to travel to space on board a rocket made by his own private space company, Blue Origin – and unlike Branson, he will be part of the first ever test flight for the rocket.

    Branson denies it is a race, despite announcing his plan soon after Bezos and scheduling a date shortly before. Bezos has declined to comment on Branson’s effort to beat him to space.

    The Virgin founder – who is part of a team of six – will finally get his chance on Sunday, or some time after it, when the launch window for the test flight opens.

    Virgin Galactic has not revealed precise timings for the flight. But its livestream begins on Sunday morning at 2pm uUK time, or 9am eastern time, and so if conditions allow it will likely happen soon after that.

    It can be viewed here on Virgin Galactic’s YouTube page, and will be covered live on The Independent.

    Previous flights have lasted around 90 minutes, and the latest journey for Unity will probably take roughly as long.

    When the flight begins, the spaceplane will be carried by a twin-fuselage carrier jet dubbed VMS Eve (named for Branson’s mother) to an altitude of 50,000 feet, where Unity will be released and soar by rocket power in an almost vertical climb through the outer fringe of Earth’s atmosphere.

    At the apex of its flight some 55 miles (89 km) above the New Mexico desert, the crew will experience a few minutes of weightlessness before making a gliding descent back to Earth.

    They will then come back and the journey will end where it began - on a runway at Spaceport America near the aptly named town of Truth or Consequences.

    Virgin‘s Unity 22 mission marks the 22nd test flight of the spacecraft, and the company’s fourth crewed mission beyond Earth’s atmosphere.

    But it will be the first to carry a full complement of space travelers –€“ two pilots and four “mission specialists,” Branson among them.

    Although the mission is seen as a potential milestone in helping transform citizen rocket travel into a mainstream commercial venture, spaceflight remains an inherently hazardous endeavor.

    An earlier prototype of the Virgin Galactic rocket plane crashed during a test flight over California’s Mojave Desert in 2014, killing one pilot and seriously injuring another.

    If successful, Sunday’s flight will also give Branson bragging rights to besting rival Jeff Bezos and his space company, Blue Origin, in what has been popularized as a “billionaire space race.” Bezos, founder of online retail giant Amazon.com, is slated to fly aboard Blue Origin’s suborbital rocketship, the New Shepard, later this month.

    Branson’s official job on his flight is to “evaluate the private astronaut experience,” and his observations will be used to “enhance the journey for all future astronaut customers,” according to Virgin‘s press materials.

    Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin, along with fellow billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk’s SpaceX, are competing head-to-head in the emerging business of space tourism, though Musk has a big head start.

    SpaceX, which plans to send its first all-civilian crew (without Musk) into orbit in September, has already launched numerous cargo payloads and astronauts to the International Space Station.

    Branson, 70, insists there is plenty of demand from wealthy would-be citizen astronauts to go around, and that he had no intention of trying to upstage Bezos.

    “It’s honestly not a race,” Branson told Reuters in an interview earlier this week. “If it’s a race, it’s a race to produce wonderful spaceships that can make many more people be able to access space. And I think that’s both of our aims.”

    The spaceplane’s two pilots, Dave Mackay and Michael Masucci, will control the ignition and shutoff of the ship’s rocket engine, and activate the vehicle’s “feathered” tail maneuver for re-entry.

    The three other mission specialists are Beth Moses, the company’s chief astronaut instructor; Virgin Galactic‘s lead operations engineer Colin Bennett; and Sirisha Bandla, a research operations and government affairs vice president.

  • Watch: Jeff Bezos space flight via Blue Origin rocket; back to Earth after 10-min voyage

    2:27

    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos blasted off Blue Origin's New Shepard flight on Tuesday. Flight took off from its Launch Site One in the West Texas desert in the United States. The founder of Blue Origin was accompanied by brother, Mark Bezos and Wally Funk. The trio was also accompanied by an 18-year-old passenger named Oliver Daemen. The mission marked another milestone in the space race started by private companies. Astronauts boarded the crew capsule 30 minutes before launch & hatch closed six minutes later. They experienced three to four minutes of zero-g & travelled above the Kármán Line. The Kármán Line is the internationally-recognised boundary of space. Blue Origin's recovery team joined the 4-member crew to celebrate their return from space. The successful launch and subsequent touchdown made Funk, 82, the oldest person & Daeman the youngest to have flown in space. Blue Origin's New Shepard flight is a fully autonomous spacecraft. It didn't have any Blue Origin staff astronauts during its maiden human spaceflight.

  • 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.

The Amazon founder was accompanied by a hand-picked group: his brother, an 18-year-old from the Netherlands and an 82-year-old aviation pioneer from Texas — the youngest and oldest to ever fly in space. “Best day ever!” Bezos said when the capsule touched down on the desert floor in remote West Texas after the 10-minute flight.

  • Jeff Bezos, Blue Origin Crew Celebrate Launch With Champagne Shower

    1:01

    Jeff Bezos has reached space on his rocket company's first flight with passengers.

    He's the second billionaire in just over a week to ride his own spacecraft.

    The Amazon founder soared to space with a hand-picked group in his Blue Origin capsule.

    The passengers include Bezos' younger brother, an 18-year-old from the Netherlands and an 82-year-old aviation pioneer from the Dallas area.

    They're the youngest and oldest to ever hurtle off the planet.

    Named after America's first astronaut, the New Shepard rocket soared from West Texas on the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

    The crew landed after the up-and-down flight, which lasted about 10 minutes.

    They were greeted by cheering family and friends upon return.

    Bezos later popped a bottle of champagne in celebration, showering the crew with it.
