WELCOME BACK. A NEW SHEPARD. >> I VIEW A YOU FLY TO SPACE. >> IS TO STOP THE LAND. AND TOM, THAT THE CAPSULE SHOULD FOLLOW HERE IN ROUGHLY 3 MINUTES, CORRECT. THAT’S EXACTLY RIGHT. SO AND THEY WILL PULL THOSE SHOOT. AND AS THAT CAPSULE IS COMING BACK DOWN MACH 3. 7 INITIALLY AS IT COMES BACK DOWN AND THEN THE SHOOTING COME OUT AND THEY WILL EVENTUALLY SLOW TO 60 MILES PER HOUR.

I THINK I JUST HEARD WALLY FUNK SAY SHE BEEN FLOATING FOR 5 MINUTES. WHICH IS JUST EXCEEDED HER EXPECTATIONS. OBVIOUSLY A GREAT EXPERIENCE. AND I GOTTA THINK ALSO ABOUT THIS 18 YEAR-OLD DUTCH KID ALL OVER THE 2 WEEKS AGO WAS BETWEEN HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE AND SUDDENLY HE’S ON A ROCKET TO THE EDGE OF WHAT A GAME CHANGER THIS HAS BEEN FOR WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO DO NOW IS MAKE SURE ALL SAFETY PROTOCOLS ARE FOLLOWED. THEY. >> GAS, AS YOU HEARD THEM SAY, AND THEN THEY’RE GOING TO COME IN VERY QUICKLY OR ARE COMING IN VERY QUICKLY, SHOULD SAY RIGHT NOW WITH THE USE OF GROUND SUPPORT TEAM IN TRUCKS AND THEY WILL BRING ALL THESE ASTRONAUTS FROM THEIR SPACESHIP AND >> THEIR SPACESHIP OUT TOWARDS THE STAGING GROUND CLEARLY PLAYING THE MOMENT. JUST A FEW MOMENTS AGO THAT. THAT ROCKET BOOSTER. TAKING TOM, THE WHOLE THING WAS ACTUALLY A FEW SECONDS 11 WE WERE EXPECTING. WE CAN ALSO TELL US, OH, GOOD TIME. >> I WAS GOING TO SAY TO GET A REFUND. IF YOU COME DOWN 7 MINUTES AND 30 SECONDS TO SET UP I DON’T KNOW AS A PRETTY EXPENSIVE TICKET. LIST. I DO THINK IT’S ALSO MADE WORTH MAKING THE POINT THEY HAD THEY HAD THE BEAUTY OF THE SYSTEM AND LET’S LET’S CELEBRATE THE ENGINEERING EXPERTISE HERE. THE BEAUTY OF THE SYSTEM IS IT IS A REUSABLE ROCKET. WE’RE GOING TO TURN THAT BUST AROUND THAT ROCKET BOOSTER AROUND AND THE SPACE CAPSULE ALSO WILL BE REUSED VERY CLOSE TO THE SAYS NOT WE’RE WATCHING THOSE LOT TO THE CAP. SO HERE. WHAT DO YOU THINK AND PRESUMABLY IN JUST A FEW MOMENTS, WE’RE GOING TO LIKE FOR VERY HAPPY HERE. I DON’T WHAT SO QUICKLY. >> THEY START MOVING EVEN BEFORE IT LANDED BASED ON ON THE PREDICTION OF LANDING WEATHER BALLOONS THAT WE LAUNCHED THROUGHOUT THE MORNING AND THAT AND THAT GIVES US A VERY GOOD IDEA OF WHERE IT WILL LAND, WHICH WITHIN A 1000 FEET. AND WHAT YOU’RE SEEING THAT THEY’RE RIGHT NOW IS KEVIN’S FROM REMEMBER, 7 IS JUST MAKING SURE EVERYBODY’S OK, AND JUST THEM AND THEY’RE ALSO GROUNDING THE VEHICLE. WHEN YOU GO INTO SPACE, YOU COULD SMELL A PRETTY SIGNIFICANT ELECTRIC CHARGE. THAT’S ACTUALLY WHY WE PREFER THAT THE ASTRONAUTS NOT GET OUT THEMSELVES SO THAT WE CAN GROUND THE VEHICLE STARTED CHARGE WHICH CAN BE QUITE STRONG. >> EXCELLENT. AND I THINK THEY’RE THAT KEVIN SPROAT, OUR CREW MEMBER. 7 HAS GIVEN THE E A. GIVEN THE THUMBS UP. >> FOR ALL OF OUR ASTRONAUTS THAT ARE ON BOARD THERE AGAIN, JEFF MARK BEZOS. >> WALLY FUNK.

AND NOW THEY’VE GOT PEOPLE ON BOARD AND JEFF PESOS TAKES THE FIRST RIDE. SO I THINK IT’S PRETTY EXCITING. I THINK IT OPENS UP OPPORTUNITIES NOT ONLY FOR ALSO A PROFESSOR AT COLUMBIA. SOME OF MY STUDENTS HAVE HAD EXPERIMENT FLY ALREADY ON THE NEW SPACECRAFT. SO I THINK IT’S GOING TO OPEN UP OPPORTUNITIES AND MORE ACCESS TO SPACE VERY EXCITING WHAT LOU URGENT HAS PLANNED FOR THE FUTURE AS TOO. >> ALL OF COSTELLO. WE KNOW THAT THERE’S GOING TO BE A NEWS CONFERENCE OF SOME SORT ROUGHLY HOUR AND A HALF FROM NOW. SO REPORTERS WILL GET TO ASK QUESTIONS OF OF THE CIVILIAN WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THIS SEASON. >> OF THE PEOPLE THAT THEY WILL HAVE FULL. FIRST OF ALL, THEY COULD HAVE SOME FAMILY TIME REUNITED WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY RIGHT HERE ON THE GROUND DO THAT PRIVATELY AND THEN THEY HAVE A SERIOUS SAID AFTER THE NEWS CONFERENCE, THEY HAVE A SERIES OF ONE-ON-ONE INTERVIEWS WITH THE MEDIA. YEAH. ALL JUST A COUPLE OF POINTS HERE. FIRST OF ALL, THIS IS A REALLY HAS MUCH ABOUT A BILLIONAIRE GOING TO SPACE IN THE IN IN THE TERMS OF JEFF BEZOS ANY MORE THAN IT WAS REALLY ABOUT RICHARD BRANSON. IT’S ABOUT THIS NEW CHAPTER IN ALLOWING ANYBODY EVENTUALLY TO EXPERIENCED SEE THE EARTH FROM BEYOND THAT. YOU KNOW, THAT KARMAN LINE BETWEEN THE ATMOSPHERE AND SPACE AND PROVIDING PEOPLE THAT REALLY WHAT THEY HOPE IS KIND OF A ROUNDING EXPERIENCE, A HUMAN EXPERIENCE AND GAIN A GREATER FOR WHERE WE ARE FOR THIS PLANET THAT WE ARE ON AND IT’S STRAIGHT ROAD HERE IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE IN THE UNIVERSE. I WOULD ALSO MAKE THE POINT IS A VERY COMFORTABLE WAY. 75 DEGREES ON THE GROUND HERE IN WEST TEXAS AND IT NORMALLY CAN GET UP TO A 110. THE LOCALS HERE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE FACT THAT CANNOT BELIEVE WE’RE HAVING SUCH WONDERFUL WEATHER HERE. YESTERDAY WAS ONLY IN THE 80’S. SO FANTASTIC WEATHER AND A BEAUTIFUL DAYS TO LAND HERE IN WEST ALSO, BY THE WAY, WE HAD A SECURITY IN A SAFETY BRIEFING HERE ON THE GROUND BEFORE THIS WHOLE THING STARTED. >> AND THE DIRECTOR OF SECURITY FOR BLUE ORIGIN A VERY SERIOUS GUY SAID LOOK OUT FOR THE RATTLESNAKES SCORPIONS TARANTULAS AND THE TORNADOES SO THAT HAVE A YOU KNOW, YOU CAN IMAGINE THAT THEY I THINK ALL THE RATTLESNAKES WERE SCARED AWAY WHEN THAT THING LANDED IN THE FEW MOMENTS. GOOD ALSO APPEARED AS IF SOMEONE REMEMBERED TO BRING THE CHAMPAGNE TO THE PARTY IN THE DESERT IN WEST TEXAS. MAE JEMISON IS BACK WITH ME AS MAY HERE WE IN NEED 2021 WE’VE JUST SEEN OF 4 CIVILIANS. >> HAD IN THE SPACE THE SECOND TIME IN 9 DAYS WE’VE SEEN SOMETHING LIKE THIS WHERE ARE WE GOING TO BE. >> 10 YEARS FROM NOW. MAE JEMISON. IF YOU HAD TO GUESS, I WOULD JUST CAME OUT OF THE GUESS FOR ME, WE’RE GOING TO BE IS. >> WHAT I HOPE WILL BE IS THAT THE SITE AND ABOUT SPACE EXPLORATION CONTINUES AND WE WILL STEADFASTLY CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THE INCREDIBLE WORK THAT GOVERNMENTS TO IN SPACE EXPLORATION HAS THIS IS VERY CLEARLY RIGHTFULLY MILLS WORK THAT WAS FROM 96 TO ONE POINT IN TERMS OF GETTING HUMANS IN SPACE IS. SO WE’RE ABLE TO HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE WARRANT WHAT THEY DO ME A LOT THE HEAVY LIFT. HE WAS ALREADY IT COMMERCIAL INDUSTRY BRINGS A WEALTH OF THE HERE IS INNOVATION. >> THINGS FORWARD. SO I WE’RE DOING IS WE’LL SEE THIS CONTINUED PROCESS WHERE HE’S WE HAD SORT OF SAID IT’S ONLY COMMERCIAL IS PRIVATE INDUSTRY. BUT WE CONTINUE TO THE WORK NASA DOES IT’S LONG RACE SPACE EXPLORATION ARE GOING BACK TO THE MOOD ALSO PUTTING IN THE WITH OUR COMMERCIAL INDUSTRY SO IN 10 YEARS, PERHAPS WE’LL SEE TICKET PRICES COME DOWN SEE MORE PEOPLE INVOLVED WE’LL SEE MORE A FALLS AND WE WILL BE BACK THE MOVE ONE WAY OR THE >> THAT FEELS LIKE THE PERFECT PERIOD. TO OUR COVERAGE THIS MORNING. THE BLUE ORIGIN. SOARED INTO SPACE WAS THERE FOR ROUGHLY. A HALF MINUTES FROM TOUCHDOWN TO TAKE OFF THOSE 4 CIVILIANS. >> SO SMART. DAYS OF FALLS OLIVER DAEMEN, ALL SAFELY. >> BACK ON THIS PLANET RIGHT NOW. WE WILL BE HEARING FROM THEM IN JUST A BIT. >> BUT NOW THAT CONTINUES OUR
