<blockquote>'The space vehicle reached an altitude of nearly 330,000 feet after it launched from Van Horn, Texas, then made a "gentle, controlled" descent back to the launchpad. Founder Jeff Bezos hailed the success a real game-changer.

"You've seen a lot of rockets take off, but you've never seen one land," the Amazon CEO told "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday. "Reusability is a total game changer ... It changes the cost structure of space travel completely."

Blue Origin is a private company, which Bezos founded in 2000, that works to develop technology for commercial human space travel. Bezos hopes his company will enable "millions of people" to live and work in space.'
