That's pretty neat!

Some serious money to burn there, but when it is ready to be commercialised, they are going to make a small fortune.

That is just plain cool. Something many scientist over many years have hoped for is now a reality. 8)

Blue Origin is doing a great job. There seems to be a bit of back and forth between Blue Origin and SpaceX. However they are both doing a great job at what they are attempting to achieve.

It looks like space tourism could be on the not to distant future.
Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there."
Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it

Blakey,

We needs larger reloads and a higher ceiling, off you go :-)

Awesome George, thanks for posting...

Blue Origin has just conducted it's 5 and apparently final flight of New Sheppard in a Max Q escape system test. While the commentators said it was a success the capsule looked like it was unstable ftom motor burnout till apogee. I guess we will have to wait and see if any changes are made to add stability.

Looked like perhaps the manuvering system was having difficulty stoping the rear from overtaking the front.

Marginal stability issue on the prototype? Was much more stable (looked rock solid!) when it was under thrust and the exhaust plume was adding to the aerodynamic stability. Trouble seemed to creep in when the escape motor burnt (fizzled) out, perhaps changing airflow around and upsetting the craft.

Good data whatever happened. So it was a good flight for Blue Origin!
