Just received this press release.

 

Happy Festivus!

Happy Festivus!

 

Although they have been operating under a fairly good shroud of secrecy, the wrapper is starting to be removed, and, like Christmas, we are beginning to see the awesome present that was under the tree…

So congratulations to another disrupter of the staid launch industry, Blue Origin, for the first developmental test flight of the New Shepard!

Although they didn’t stick the landing, they are already hard at work on getting their VTVL RLV technology working.

Which begs the question – how long until Amazon Prime provides 2-day free shipping to ISS..?
