Space tourism rocket blasts off from Texas on test flight

Blue Origin launched its New Shepard rocket Wednesday from West Texas.

The originate by Blue Foundation came about in Culberson County, which is ready 190 miles east of El Paso. This reusuability, (as SpaceX rockets do) means that New Shepard can land and fly again with "minimal refurbishment" - a key issuing in bringing down the cost per launch.

On board, a NASA experiment from Kennedy Space Center which aims to turn space-traveler's trash and waste into usable like such as methane, hydrogen and carbon dioxide which can be used for fuel.

A great many postcards composed and designed by kids from Blue Origin's not-for-profit Club for the Future, which tries to rouse kids in space investigation, are likewise propelling on this strategic, Origin has said.

Instead it partnered up Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and Draper, to jointly develop a lunar landing system for the space agency capable of taking humans to and from the Moon's surface.

With the the biggest windows ever built into a spacecraft, New Shepard hopes to give commercial space tourism passengers aboard the ship unprecedented views of space. "This was also the 9th commercial payload mission for New Shepard, and we are proud to be have flown our 100th customer on board", said Blue Origin. One project, called OSCAR, will test a "mixture of gasses" that could help NASA understand how to convert common waste to "propulsion or life support" on deep-space exploration missions, according to a press release.

"We are going to take our time, step by step, and as we've said before, this is not a race".

Blue Origin should hold up at any rate one more day to fly its first space strategic quite a while after terrible climate postponed a dispatch endeavor today (Dec. 10).

"Keep them coming, guys, we need a lot more", Dietrich said. The New Shepard vehicle can make it's landing vertically after its capsule liftoff into space.
