Amazon and Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos fielded questions from some very savvy kids at the new Apollo exhibit at Seattle’s Museum of Flight this weekend. The exhibit features F-1 engines from some of the Saturn V rockets that took astronauts to the moon. Bezos’ team recovered the engines from the Atlantic Ocean decades after they took the plunge, and today he and his Blue Origin team are working to ensure that rockets are recovered in real-time on future space missions.

It’s a fascinating discussion, with great questions and answers — touching on topics including the future of space, Bezos’ plan to put a city on the moon, and his practical tips for success back here on Earth.
