New Shepard the suborbital rocket by Blue Origin made history yesterday with a successful soft landing at their west Texas Launch site. It was lunched flew into space and reached an altitude of 329,839 feet (100.5 kilometers) to return and land upright. New Shepard is a suborbital manned rocket used as a commercial system for suborbital space tourism.
After the event Jeff went to twitter and said:

There is some back and forth jabber between Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk about the specific accomplishments and it takes a Twitter user to help sort out the poking.
Nonetheless, the video footage is pretty impressive. I can’t wait to see what else is coming our way in the future.
Good job New Shepard
