Transcript for Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin Space Company Successfully Launches Rocket
We are with -- back now with billionaire Jeff bezos going from Amazon to changing space travel forever. His company just successfully launched and returned a rocket and he joins us live from Texas. Good morning, Jeff, how are you? Good morning. It's great to be here. Thank you. Well, congratulations. You just made space history and tell us about the successful rocket launch that you had. Well, you know, you've seen a lot of rockets lift off, but you've never seen one land and so right behind me is the first fully reusable rocket and we just flew it into space and brought it back and landed it at the launch site. This is a big game changer because it totally changes the economics of space travel. When you throw a rocket away, an expendable rocket, you use it once and throw away all that expensive space hardware. It would be like taking -- getting in your 747, flying across the country and then throwing it away. Just using it one time. Imagine how expensive traveling would be. I would never do that with my 747. Yeah, yeah, you know, I usually keep my 747 for as long as I can keep it but so your website -- You definitely want to reuse those. And your website actually teased some information about a window seat and space travel. Is that something that you could possibly be planning? Yes, so we're -- right now we're -- you know, we just flew this vehicle successfully. We're going to -- this is the beginning of a long and very deliberate test program where we're going to fly the vehicle, many, many times and then when we're completely confident in it we'll start using it to take people up into space. That should take another couple of years. Wow. Now, do you want to go to space one day? It's one thing to launch the rocket successfully have it land and space travel -- Absolutely. You know it. Absolutely. I've wanted to do that since I was a 5-year-old boy. It's a passion. It's deep in my heart. And what else? Is there anything else about this launch that really may -- By the way, you guys are invited if you want to come. Whoa. We'll go up. How many takers on that offer? I'll do it. You going to go. Good for you. I'm a coach guy myself. I get window seat. Why wouldn't you -- I -- at first I was thinking, no, but you're right, Jeff. It's a great adventure and you'll -- I still haven't seen the grand canyon. Well, I tell you what, hey, Jeff, Jeff, thank you, congratulations and it really is amazing to take a rocket up and bring it back down. Good for you. We'll take you up on that offer. "Gma" is going to do the show from space. How about that? Robin is going to do the show from space? Thank you, guys. Don't forget to wear your helmet.
