 Bezos: Blue origin company broadcast live rocket test flight on Sunday


Photo: Amazon founder Jeff Bezos (JeffBezos) said that the next rocket test flight of blue origin will be broadcast live on Sunday morning. This will be the first test flight of blue origin company this year. In December last year, the company launched seventh launches and landed on the NewShepard rocket, and successfully deployed the CrewCapsule2.0 of the unmanned spacecraft. This is the first launch of the company in 14 months. The NewShepard rocket, named after Alan Shepard (AlanShepard), the first American into space, will be launched vertically from the blue origin company in the factory near Van Horne, Texas. In the seventh test flight, the booster of NewShepard reached the altitude of nearly 100 kilometers away from the sea level before the separation of the capsule. The booster returned to earth at a speed of nearly 12 kilometers an hour and landed on the concrete launching pad. The capsule then landed on the desert floor at a speed of 1.6 kilometers an hour. The space capsule is designed to accommodate six astronauts. With its huge windows, CrewCapsule2.0 allows humans to experience weightlessness in a cheaper and easier way at the edge of space. After leaving the NewShepard booster, the capsule glided for a few minutes at three times the speed of sound in space, and then gravity pushed the capsule into a free fall. Before landing, three parachutes and a thrusting system will slow down the speed of the capsule.
