VAN HORN, Texas — It’s T-minus 1 day for Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ suborbital spaceflight, and he feels fine.
On July 20, the world’s richest individual is due to take a ride on the New Shepard spaceship built by his Blue Origin space venture.
“People keep asking me if I am nervous,” Bezos said today on “CBS This Morning,” during an interview that also included his three crewmates. “I am not really nervous. I am excited. I am curious. I want to know what we are going to learn.”
All four soon-to-be spacefliers seemed in good spirits as the faced the camera in their flight suits.
“We’ve been training,” Bezos said. “This vehicle is ready, this crew is ready, this team is amazing. We just feel really good about it.”
