The eighth test launch of a rocket manufactured by U.S. private space company Blue Origin has proved successful as both the booster and the capsule have landed safely on a site in Texas. Cornell, who oversees business development for Blue Origin, spoke about how customers will fly into West Texas on a Friday (complete with panoramic views of the region), spend a day of "fun" flight training on Saturday, and then the launch into space itself on Sunday. That suborbital mission, the first in more than a year for the company, marked the debut of a new crew capsule and propulsion module that incorporated improvements from the earlier series of test flights, and with modifications like windows in the capsule intended for use on commercial missions. While those rockets have been busy launching commercial satellites and sending cargo to the International Space Station, New Shepard is created to lift human passengers to visit space, perhaps as soon as the end of this year. Three parachutes and a retro-thrust system will help the capsule to slow down before touch. The company said in a subsequent tweet- "Sparkle up your boots, Team Blue,". And while test dummy "Mannequin Skywalker" made the first trip in the Crew Capsule 2.0, it is not known at this time if the same mannequin will get a second ride.
Onboard the spacecraft, there will be multiple Blue Origin Payload Lockers and inside these lockers, there will be sensors and experiments, that will collect the above-mentioned data. He cautioned that the company will only "go when we're ready".
Smith said he expected the company to perform several test flights this year to ensure that the vehicle was in a stable configuration. The capsule is developed to hold with it six astronauts and, with its large windows, the Crew Capsule 2.0 is developed to make it affordable and easier for people to experience weightlessness on the edge of the outer space. According to Bezos, his space company is the most important thing that he is doing, adding that he wants to see millions of people working in space and preserving Earth for residential and light industrial purposes.
Although it has yet to make a formal announcement, the company seems to be getting closer to flying people on the suborbital tourism launch system-and perhaps beginning ticket sales.
