'Best day ever': Jeff Bezos, Blue Origin rocket touch down after historic spaceflight

Jeff Bezos after Blue OOrigin flightBillionaire Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his Blue Origin rocket crew realized dreams and made history Tuesday, blasting off from the West Texas desert, reaching space and returning to Earth in a smooth parachute landing minutes later.

"Happy, happy, happy!" Jeff Bezos said from space. "You have a very happy crew up here!"

The New Shepard provided large windows to enjoy the view, and the crew was treated to three or four minutes of weightlessness. The booster rocket touched down smoothly, a vertical landing about seven minutes after liftoff. The capsule containing the astronauts landed with parachutes and a "cushion of air" created by retrorockets a little more than 10 minutes after liftoff.

"Best day ever," Jeff Bezos said after touchdown, greeted by a sea of cheering Blue Origin employees and others at the company's campus.
