Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder, and crew are now celebrating a successful space flight.
On July 20, the world’s richest man and three others experienced three minutes of viewing Earth through the ‘largest windows in space,’ before making a soft landing back home.
Minutes after touchdown, Bezos reportedly exchanged high-fives with well-wishers.

In an interview just hours before, he told CNN: “You know, we have lots of problems here and now on Earth and we need to work on those, and we always need to look to the future.
“We’ve always done that as a species, as a civilization.
“We’ll be building a road to space, to do amazing things that solve problems here on Earth.”
The 57-year-old explained that it’s one step further to easing the overloaded planet.
“All polluting industry will move off Earth, and Earth will end up zoned residential,” he said.
The rocket, developed by Blue Origin, marks the first time a private company is offering its experience to a paying customer.
Eventually, it’s believed that the business aims to create tourism outside of the planet. Plus, it’s a part of Bezos’ dream to have a space-borne civilisation.
However, the American businessman was beaten by Sir Richard Branson on his journey to space.
The English founder of the Virgin Group rode a Galatic plane 86km in height just nine days ago.
