Jeff Bezos’ rocket company is not quite ready for space tourism, but today’s test flight gets it a bit closer. Bezos tweeted that for the 1st time, Blue Origin has tested version 2.0 of its Crew Capsule, and while he did not notice how luxurious the test unit is, it does feature “the largest windows in space.” measuring at 2.4 feet wide and 3.6 feet high, they gave the test dummy a fabulous view from 322,405 feet above earth level.
