Jeff Bezos’ rocket company Blue Origin launched the first flight of its new spaceship on Wednesday, marking a big step on the company's road to commercial spaceflight.
Blue Origin’s New Shepard vehicle launched 307,000 feet into the air Wednesday atop the company’s BE-3 rocket engine at a company facility near Van Horn, Texas, about 500 miles west of Dallas. According to Bezos, the test went well, and a video of the test shows the spacecraft floating back to Earth beneath parachutes after launch.
