Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Blue Origin launch: Jeff Bezos, crew complete historic spaceflight” – below is their description.
The world’s richest man and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has achieved a long-held dream of flying into space while officially launching his space tourism project.
He and three crew members successfully completed a suborbital flight in his company’s Blue Origin’s New Shepard vehicle.
The 10-minute trip crossed the 100-kilometre (62-mile) mark – which marks the outer edge of space.
Fellow billionaire Richard Branson made a similar trip nine days earlier but only reached its edge.
Al Jazeera’s Rob Reynolds reports from Texas, the US.
