Jeff Bezos gets excited & tweets for the first time
The rarest of beasts – a used rocket. Controlled landing not easy, but done right, can look easy. Check out video: https://t.co/9OypFoxZk3

Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, has had an extraordinary day with two technological feats.
First his Blue Origin New Shepard space vehicle successfully flew to space, reaching its planned test altitude of 329,839 feet before performing a perfect double touchdown back at the launch site. First the capsule which will one day carry space travellers floated down to earth and then the reusable rocket itself performed an incredible tail first controlled landing.
How does one of the richest men in the world celebrate? Well Chris Dunne at RepricerExpress was less excited about the rocket and had more interest in Jeff Bezos at last joining the modern world and tweeting for the first time.
Hard to believe that Bezos hasn’t tweeted before but it’s a double first for him today.
