New Shepard Test Flight
Blue Origin promised to provide a live webcast this Sunday of the company’s next sub-orbital test flight with the New Shepard launch vehicle.
Sunday’s flight will mark the fourth mission of this New Shepard launch vehicle and the Crew Capsule sitting atop to further demonstrate the re-usability ambition for the sub-orbital mission hardware.
This mission will test a landing on two of the Capsule’s three parachutes, with one chute deliberately disabled to demonstrate the vehicle can land safely on two chutes.
Liftoff is aiming for 14:15 UTC. Live Video by Blue Origin.
