Amazon’s Jeff Bezos’ Rocket Has Successful Launch

Blue Origin - New Shephard

Blue Origin - New ShephardAmazon’s Jeff Bezos has a rocket and it (mostly) works. The “New Shephard” is made by Bezos’ Blue Origin company, is 60ft tall and can carry up to six people into space.

 

This launch took the craft to 58 miles above the earth and successfully returned the unmanned capsule to the ground by parachute.

The booster section was supposed to be recovered and re-used, but due to a hydraulic failure, recovery was not possible.
