Jeff Bezos, CNN "Sit Back, Relax" – Sir Richard Branson's Space Travel Advice For Jeff Bezos

Welcome BACK. My FIRST GUEST TONIGHT IS A BILLIONAIRE ENTREPRENEUR WHO HAS GONE ON ADVENTURES IN HOT AIR BALLOONS, SUBMARINES AND SPEEDBOATS, AND ON SUNDAY HE FLEW TO OUTER SPACE IN HIS OWN ROCKET.. Please WELCOME BACK TO THE LATE SHOW, SIR RICHARD BRANSON. CHEERS AND APPLAUSE CHEERS AND APPLAUSE gtgt Announcer THAT’S A 3.3.. I THINK THAT SHOULD BE A 5.5.. I MEAN. How CAN YOU YOU CAN TAKE YOURS OFF. THERE YOU GO. gtgt Stephen, OH YEAH., OH YEAH., OH YEAH.. 4.93 BABY. WHAT ELSE IT WITH YOUR BILLIONAIRES, NOT WEARING SHOES? Do YOU JUST HAVE THE ENTIRE YARD LEATHERED INSTEAD LOVELY TO SEE YOU AGAIN. WELCOME BACK TO THE COOL GREEN HILLS OF EARTH. gtgt THANK YOU. I’M STILL COMING DOWN, SLOWLY. gtgt Stephen. I CAN IMAGINE. CONGRATULATIONS. gtgt. Thank YOU., gtgt Stephen. I JUST WANT TO TAKE JIM LOOK AT THIS ACCELERATION THAT YOU WENT THROUGH ON SUNDAY. Morning.. Do WE HAVE THIS JIM THERE, YOU GO. THERE’S THE RELEASE. FIRE IN THE ROCKET AND HERE’S, WHERE WE SEE YOU GET JAMMED BACK INTO YOUR SEAT. THERE’S. The DROP THEN HERE WE GO SLAM HERE IT IS. AT ANY POINT DURING THAT PROCESS. Do YOU THINK THIS WAS NOT A GOOD IDEA? Laughter gtgt. You KNOW THERE ARE TIMES IN THE YEARS LEADING UP TO IT. I WAS WONDERING WHETHER THE BODY WOULD COPE AND THE MOMENT I REALIZED THE BODY WOULD COPE. I JUST ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF IT.. It WAS A DREAM FROM TEENAGE YEARS COME TRUE AND WE HAD A BLAST.

gtgt Stephen. You HAD A MESSAGE FROM SPACE FOR KIDS, EVERYWHERE, JIM. gtgt TO ALL YOU, KIDS DOWN THERE. I WAS ONCE A CHILD WITH A DREAM LOOKING UP TO THE STARS. NOW I’M, AN ADULT IN A SPACE SHIP WITH LOTS OF OTHER WONDERFUL ADULTS. Looking DOWN TO OUR BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL EARTH. TO THE NEXT GENERATION OF DREAMERS, IF WE CAN DO THIS, JUST IMAGINE WHAT YOU CAN DO: YAY CHEERS AND APPLAUSE gtgt Stephen! Now, ONCE YOU GOT BACK DOWN HERE, I ASSUME A MILLION PEOPLE CALLED YOU TO CONGRATULATE YOU OR TO ASK YOU QUESTIONS. WHO’S THE MOST MEANINGFUL CONTACT. Once YOU GOT BACK TO THE PLANET gtgt, IT WAS BUZZ. Aldrin.. Somebody AS A TEENAGER WHEN I WATCHED THE MOON LANDING. My DAD TOOK ME OUT SIDE AND WE LOOKED UP TO THE MOON WITH MY SISTERS AND HE JUST SAID THERE ARE TWO PEOPLE STANDING ON THE MOON, RIGHT, NOW. THAT WAS SO INSPIRATIONAL. AND BUT ONE OF THE SAD THINGS IS WE’VE ALL BEEN LOOKING BACKWARDS TO THOSE Sorts OF FLIGHTS. AND NOW KIDS CAN START LOOKING FORWARD TO THE CHANCE OF GOING TO SPACE THEMSELVES ONE DAY AND HOPEFULLY WE CAN CONTRIBUTE TO THAT. gtgt. Stephen. A LOT HAS BEEN MADE OF THE COMPETITION BETWEEN THE SPACE BILLIONAIRES. YOU AND JEFF BEZOS, WHO IS GOING UP IN SEVEN DAYS AT THIS? Not THAT IT MATTERS AT THIS POINT BECAUSE YOU’VE ALREADY BEEN UP. LAUGHTER, SORRY JEFF.! He LIQUID, THE DONUT, IS WHAT HE DID.

, BUT YOU DON’T CARE IT DIDN’T MATTER. You WENT UP FIRST. gtgt IT HONESTLY DIDN’T. gtgt, Stephen HONESTLY, IT DIDN’T LAUGHTER, gtgt, HONESTLY, LAUGHTER, NO gtgt Stephen. If HE HAD ASKED YOU NOT TO GO UP FIRST, WOULD YOU HAVE SAID SURE I DON’T CARE gtgt, NO. HONESTLY NO. LAUGHTER, gtgt Stephen, BUT ELON MUSK, WHO HAS ACTUALLY GOT AN ORBITAL PROGRAM. He STOPPED BY CAME AROUND 300 A.M. TO WISH YOU GOOD LUCK. AGAIN, NOT WITH THE SHOES ON.. Do YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR BEZOS WHEN HE GOES UP gtgt LOOK. I JUST THINK THAT HE AND THE PEOPLE HE’S BRINGING UP HE’S, BRINGING UP A WONDERFUL LADY WHO I’VE KNOWN OVER THE YEARS, JUST SIT BACK, RELAX, LOOK OUT OF THE WINDOW. JUST ABSORB THE VIEW OUTSIDE AND THINK OF YEAH REALLY REALLY TAKE IT. In. IT’S SOMETHING THAT’S. A ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY. ENJOY IT. gtgt Stephen. Was THERE ANY MOMENT WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE NAUSEOUS PEOPLE FIRST IN ZERO G WILL POP. gtgt. I WAS NERVOUS., YOU HAVE THE WORLD FILMING AND IMAGINE JUST THROWING UP ALL OVER YOUR SPACESHIP. gtgt Stephen, NOT THE BEST ADVERTISEMENT FOR YOUR PRODUCT. gtgt. My KIDS SAID: DON’T WORRY THEY’LL, SEE YOU’RE A HUMAN BEING.. No IN THE MOMENT, I REALIZED IT DID NOT GIVE YOU THAT KIND OF FEELING, AND I JUST ENJOYED IT.. I WAS RELIEVED, BUT IT WAS. It WAS EXTRAORDINARY. gtgt Stephen NOW, WHEN YOU CALLED ME AND ASKED ME IF I WOULD WANT TO HOST THIS THING.

I SAID THAT SOUNDS VERY EXCITING. I’M, A HUGE SPACE FAN.. I SEE A LOT OF VALUE IN PEOPLE GOING TO SPACE, BUT THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF PUSHBACK FROM PEOPLE OUT THERE SAYING. Why SPEND YOUR MONEY TO GO? Do THAT AND NOT YOU AND THE OTHER BILLIONAIRE? Creating YOUR OWN PROGRAMS, BUT ANY SPACE PROGRAM WHEN THERE ARE SO MANY PROBLEMS ON EARTH INEQUALITY, GLOBAL WARMING. What WOULD YOU SAY TO THOSE WHO THINK THIS IS A MISUSE OF RESOURCES. gtgt? I CAN UNDERSTAND IT, BUT I THINK THEY’RE NOT FULLY EDUCATED ON WHAT SPACE DOES FOR US. gtgt Stephen. What DOES IT DO FOR US? Gtgt? First OF ALL, PEOPLE WOULDN’T BE LISTENING TO THIS PROGRAM, MOST LIKELY IF IT WASN’T FOR SPACE. SPACE IS CONNECTING THE BILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT CONNECTED. You KNOW ON THE TELEPHONES ON OTHER THINGS. SPACE IS I MEAN EVERY SINGLE SPACESHIP THAT WE SEND WHETHER VIRGIN ORBIT, WHICH WE LAUNCHED A WEEK BEFORE INTO ORBIT AND PUTTING SATELLITES UP THERE AND MONITORING THINGS AROUND THE WORLD LIKE THE DEGRADATION OF RAIN FORESTS OR MONITORING FOOD Distribution, YOU KNOW EVEN MONITORING THINGS LIKE CLIMATE CHANGE AND SO ON. These THINGS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR US BACK HERE ON EARTH., SO WE NEED MORE SPACESHIP GOING UP TO SPACE. We DON’T NEED LESS., gtgt, Stephen WHAT’S, THE PRICE RIGHT NOW gtgt. Well, YOU COULD AFFORD IT. LAUGHTER APPLAUSE. He DID ACTUALLY ASK IF HE COULD COME UP WITH ME WHEN I INVITED HIM TO HOST THE PROGRAM.

. He SAID. Okay, I CAN’T COME UP WITH YOU. If IT’S FULL., I DON’T KNOW WE HAVE FOOTAGE, I THINK. gtgt Stephen. Do WE, I PROMISE TO TAKE THIS PERSON TO SPACE SO WE’RE, TAKING A PICTURE OF THIS PERSON UP., WE DON’T WANT HIM TO WEIGH TOO MUCH BECAUSE EVERY LITTLE BIT OF WEIGHT COUNTS., BUT I WOULD HAVE STILL FULFILLED THE PROMISE OF TAKING HIM TO SPACE. PUT HIM In MY TOP POCKET. ALL RIGHT, STEPHEN. APPLAUSE, gtgt, Stephen I’M HONORED. I’M HONORED. THANK YOU. APPLAUSE, gtgt, ONE SMALL PHOTO FOR STEPHEN COLBERT, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND.. This HAS BEEN TO SPACE AND I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE IT TO YOU. gtgt Stephen THANK YOU., CHEERS AND APPLAUSE. Gtgt Stephen. Would YOU SIGN IT? Would YOU SIGN IT THAT WAY? Gtgt I WOULD BE HONORED TO SIGN IT. IT’S A LITTLE BIT SMALL. To GET MY WHOLE SIGNATURE ON, BUT I’LL TRY. THERE. gtgt, Stephen THAT’S FANTASTIC.. Thank YOU. Richard. gtgt THANK YOU. APPLAUSE, gtgt Stephen RIGHT AFTER YOU LANDED, YOU TALKED ABOUT AN OMAZE AUCTION YOU’RE RUNNING FOR CHARITY.. What IS THAT gtgt? Well, WE WANT MANY MANY MANY PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD TO BE ABLE TO GO TO SPACE, BUT WITHOUT PAYING ANYTHING APART FROM A 10 RAFFLETICKET., SO WE’VE GONE TO A CHARITABLE, FOUNDATION. OMAZE WILL RUN A GLOBAL COMPETITION AND IF YOU WIN, YOU CAN HAVE A FRIEND WE’LL. Go TO SPACE ON ONE OF OUR EARLY FLIGHTS AND I WILL TAKE YOU AROUND THE SPACEPORT.

I WILL DO YOU KNOW ONE OF THOSE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, WALKABOUTS I’LL, PUT ON ALL THE GEAR AND THEN THE 10 WILL AMOUNT UP AND HOPEFULLY, IF ENOUGH PEOPLE ENTER WE’LL BE ABLE TO HAVE THE CHARITABLE FOUNDATION FIND YOU KNOW MANY MANY PEOPLE WHO CAN ACTUALLY GO TO Space FOR NOTHING. – AND YOU KNOW – I THINK THIS IS SOMETHING WHICH COULD REALLY EXCITING IN THE YEARS TO COME. gtgt Stephen. What DO YOU THINK THE VALUE OF THAT IS FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN’T AFFORD TO GO TO SPACE? I DON’T MEAN TO BE FACETIOUS.. What IS THE MENTAL INTELLECTUAL, SPIRITUAL VALUE OF HAVING GONE gtgt THERE’S A WONDERFUL VIEW OF THE OVERVIEW EFFECT THERE’S ONLY 500 PEOPLE WHO HAVE EVER BEEN TO SPACE BUT IT’S A BOOK THAT’S INTERVIEWED THOSE 500 PEOPLE. THEY’VE COME BACK. I THINK SLIGHTLY CHANGED., YOU CAN’T. Look AT THIS EARTH AND THINK THAT YOU SEE THE BEAUTY OF IT FROM SPACE AND I THINK ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE HAVE COME BACK. You KNOW REALLY WANTING TO IMPROVE IT AND THAT’S. What I HOPE WILL HAPPEN WITH THESE OTHER PEOPLE WHO GO GO., gtgt Stephen! Well, RICHARD HOT JETS AND SAFE LANDINGS. THANKS. gtgt. Thank YOU VERY MUCH., gtgt Stephen. You CAN ENTER TO WIN A TRIP TO SPACE WITH VIRGIN GALACTIC ON OMAZE omaze.com., SIR RICHARD BRANSON.
