Bezos and crew pop champagne after space flight

Bezos gave a thumbs-up sign from inside the capsule after landing on the desert floor before stepping out, wearing a cowboy hat and blue flight suit, and giving company employees high fives. Later Bezos and members of his team celebrated by popping champagne bottles near the rocketship.

Bezos and his brother Mark Bezos, a private equity executive, were joined by two others - pioneering female aviator Wally Funk,82, and recent high school graduate Oliver Daemen,18, who became the oldest and youngest people to reach space.
