Blue Origin breaks the record for rocket recycling with the introduction…

Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin has set a new recycling rocket record after successfully launching and landing his reusable New Shepard.
New Shepard took off at 9:35 am ET with 12 commercial payloads put into orbit and will return to Earth, and returned to a successful landing approximately 10 minutes after takeoff.
On board the plane was a demonstration of the moon borrowing sensor for its partnership with NASA, in which a road outside the rocket instead of inside the capsule ran a series of tests for man’s return to the moon.
There were also tens of thousands of postcards from students around the world from Blue Origin’s nonprofit Club for the Future.
Blue Origin’s Caitlin Dietrich said when the booster returned to Earth, “Touch DOWN, New Shepard, let’s go.”
Mission N-13 puts Blue Origin at the forefront of recycling rockets as Elon Musk’s SpaceX has only reused Falcon 9 six times.
Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin has set a new recycling rocket record after successfully launching and landing his reusable New Shepard. This is the seventh flight in a row to have taken off from the West Texas facility
The company had originally scheduled the event on September 24th, but was scrubbed due to bad weather and technical issues.
But on Tuesday morning the skies were clear and New Shepard was spotted on the launchpad, which came alive a few minutes earlier
With less than a minute on the countdown clock, the rocket activated its motor and Dietrich said goodbye: “God speed, have a great flight!”

New Shepard was originally developed for space tourism, which is designed to take up to six passengers to the edge of space and hover in orbit for 10 minutes.
The missile hit Max Q for about a minute and 15 seconds, where it covered nearly 1,000 miles per hour.
The booster felt like it was separated from the sky and landed purposefully on the pad – a new record for New Shepard.

Together with a successful booster landing, the capsule returned to earth about 10 minutes after take-off, making it a “picture perfect start”.
“Congratulations to Team Blue today,” said Dietrich. “I’m a little out of breath, that’s really exciting, but it sounds like everything went well today.”
New Shepard was originally developed for space tourism, which is designed to take up to six passengers to the edge of space and hover in orbit for 10 minutes.
New Shepard has flown more than 100 payloads into space, but Mission NS-13 is different because some of the cargo was mounted on the outside of the booster.
The lunar landing sensor, located outside the rocket, was testing precision landing technologies for future missions to the moon in support of the Artemis program.
Jeff Bezos (pictured) founded Blue Origin in 2000 with the hope of starting a space tourism business that would take up to six passengers to the edge of space and hover in orbit for 10 minutes.
This experiment will help Blue Origin and NASA understand how the technologies work together to determine the location and speed of a spacecraft as it ascends to the moon.
“The technologies could enable future missions – both crewed and robotic – to target landing sites that were not possible during the Apollo missions, for example regions with different terrain near craters,” said Blue Origin in a press release.
“Achieving a highly accurate landing will enable long-term lunar exploration and future Mars missions.”
As part of NASA’s Artemis Human Landing System program, Blue Origin is also leading the national team, comprised of Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and Draper, developing a human landing system to bring Americans back to the lunar surface.

The company recently supplied a model of the crew’s lander vehicle, which was used to take the first woman and next man to the moon.
The full size structure, while inoperative, includes both the ascent and descent elements and is 40 feet high.
Bezos’ company announced its “national team,” and NASA installed the lander in the spacecraft modeling facility at Johnson Space Center, Texas, where the vehicle will be tested.
Blue Origin, along with Space X and Dynetics, was selected by Elon Musk to develop human landing systems for the 2024 mission and was awarded a 10-month contract totaling $ 967 million to accomplish this.
However, until the Bezos company reaches the moon, it will continue to launch payloads to and from space
Jeff Bezos’ space tourism project with Blue Origin competes with a similar development program from Space X, the rocket company founded and operated by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and Virgin Galactic, backed by Richard Branson.
Bezos announced in April 2017 that he is funding Blue Origin with roughly $ 1 billion (£ 720 million) of Amazon stock per year.
Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world, and Blue Origin has successfully used a single New Shepard Rocket six times.
At its peak, the capsule reached 104 kilometers, just above the official space threshold, and landed vertically seven minutes after launch.
SpaceX appears to be the leader in the billionaire space race, with numerous launches transporting NASA equipment to the ISS and partnerships to send tourists into space by 2021.
On February 6, 2018, SpaceX sent a rocket toward Mars 140 million miles away with Musk’s own red Tesla roadster attached.
Musk hopes this will create an interconnected network of satellites across the world that will broadcast the free internet to people all over the world.
To date, more than 600 affluent customers, including celebrities Brad Pitt and Katy Perry, have reserved a $ 250,000 (£ 200,000) seat on one of Virgin’s space trips.
Billionaire Mogul previously said he expected Elon Musk to win the race to Mars with his private rocket company SpaceX.
SpaceShipTwo can carry six passengers and two pilots. Each passenger is given the same seating position with two large windows – one to the side and one above their head.
The spaceship is 60 feet long and has a cabin with a diameter of 90 inches, in which the astronauts can float maximally in weightlessness.
It rises to 50,000 feet before the rocket engine ignites. SpaceShipTwo will part ways with its carrier, the White Knight II, as soon as it passes the 50-mile mark.
Passengers become “astronauts” when they reach the Karman Line, the limit of the Earth’s atmosphere.
The spaceship then undertakes a suborbital journey of approximately six minutes of weightlessness, with the entire flight lasting approximately 1.5 hours.
