WATCH LIVE: Jeff Bezos launches into space with Blue Origin

Billionaire Jeff Bezos is on his way to space on board a rocket developed by his private company, Blue Origin. The Amazon founder is travelling with his brother Mark, female aviation pioneer Wally Fun and space tourist Oliver Daemen. The New Shepard rocket will reach an altitude of about 106km (66 miles) passing the Karman line, considered the frontier of space, where the passengers will experience several minutes of weightlessness before returning about 10 minutes after lift-off. The mission comes days after fellow billionaire Richard Branson made a similar journey with Virgin Galactic spacecraft.
