Blue Origin Reuses Reusable Rocket
Blue Origin relaunched and relanded the same New Shepard rocket that the company used to demonstrate that feat last November. The rocket reached an altitude of 101.7 kilometers (333,582 feet) before returning to Earth, jettisoning its unoccupied crew capsule along the way. The capsule landed separately under parachutes.
The New Shepard suborbital rocket launches and lands vertically. Blue Origin, owned by Amazon.com billionaire Jeff Bezos, posted video and other images of the flight on its website.
