after a dvt blood clot.mind when i got out of the hospital what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily...
7:45 am
and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. your loving touch stimulates his senses and nurtures his mind.

all right, welcome back to "gma." we are with -- back now with billionaire jeff bezos going from amazon to changing space travel forever. his company just successfully launched and returned a rocket and he joins us live from texas. good morning, jeff, how are you? >> good morning. it's great to be here. thank you. >> well, congratulations. you just made space history and tell us about the successful rocket launch that you had. >> well, you know, you've seen a lot of rockets lift off, but you've never seen one land and so right behind me is the first fully reusable rocket and we just flew it into space and
7:48 am
brought it back and landed it at the launch site. this is a big game changer because it totally changes the economics of space travel. when you throw a rocket away, an expendable rocket, you use it once and throw away all that expensive space hardware. it would be like taking -- getting in your 747, flying across the country and then throwing it away. just using it one time. imagine how expensive traveling would be. >> i would never do that with my 747. >> yeah, yeah, you know, i usually keep my 747 for as long as i can keep it but so your website -- >> you definitely want to reuse those. >> and your website actually teased some information about a window seat and space travel. is that something that you could possibly be planning? >> yes, so we're -- right now we're -- you know, we just flew this vehicle successfully. we're going to -- this is the beginning of a long and very
7:49 am
deliberate test program where we're going to fly the vehicle, many, many times and then when we're completely confident in it we'll start using it to take people up into space. that should take another couple of years. >> wow. now, do you want to go to space one day? it's one thing to launch the rocket successfully have it land and space travel -- >> absolutely. you know it. absolutely. i've wanted to do that since i was a 5-year-old boy. it's a passion. it's deep in my heart. >> and what else? is there anything else about this launch that really may -- >> by the way, you guys are invited if you want to come. >> whoa. >> we'll go up. >> how many takers on that offer? >> i'll do it. >> you going to go. >> good for you. >> i'm a coach guy myself. >> i get window seat. >> why wouldn't you -- i -- at first i was thinking, no, but you're right, jeff. it's a great adventure and you'll --
