Taber MacCallum, co-founder of Space Perspective, joins 'Varney & Co.' to discuss his space balloon venture, which provides a 'gentle' liftoff to the edge of space for $125,000 per person.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved a Blue Origin license Monday to carry humans into space on its New Shepard launch system ahead of Jeff Bezos' planned flight later this month.  

The company, founded by the former Amazon.com chief, is approved to conduct space flight missions from its Launch Site One facility in West Texas. The license is valid through August. 

"To gain license approval to carry humans, Blue Origin was required to verify that its launch vehicle's hardware and software worked safely and as intended during a test flight," the FAA said in a statement to FOX Business. 

Bezos is scheduled to fly into space on July 20 on New Shepard's 16th flight. Liftoff is targeted for 8 p.m. CDT, the company said. FOX Business has reached out to the space travel company but has not heard back. 

The rocket from Branson's Virgin Galactic space-tourism company, which reached an altitude of 53.5 miles over the New Mexico desert, was a major step in bringing Astro-tourism closer to reality.
