It was the day Mary Wallace (Wally) Funk went to space.Oh, yes, yes, Blue Origin and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was in the capsule, too, along with 18-year-old Oliver Daemen, his first paying space customer. Then, out of the blue, Bezos offered her a space on today’s New Shepard launch.WIRED's Steven Levy is reporting daily from Van Horn, Texas, where Jeff Bezos was among the first passengers aboard Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket system. "Maybe we need to send a poet up,” he suggested, “Someone who would be better at describing it."Today, Funk’s energy spoke emphatically for space. ”I want to go again, fast!” she said.Funk’s boffo performance capped a perfect day for Bezos.
