Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his Blue Origin rocket crew blasted off Tuesday from the West Texas desert, reached space and returned to Earth with a smooth parachute landing minutes later.

“Happy, happy, happy!” Jeff Bezos said from space. “You have a very happy crew up here!”

The crew of the New Shepard rocket was treated to spectacular views of Earth along with three or four minutes of weightlessness. The booster rocket touched down smoothly about seven minutes after liftoff. The craft containing the astronauts landed with parachutes a few minutes later. The exultant group climbed out of the capsule to hugs from family and friends.

“Best day ever,” Bezos said after landing.
