Blue Origin is set to return to active flight today, after a hiatus of nearly a year since its last-place opening in December 2019. Today’s propel is a mission for the company’s New Shepard reusable sub-orbital rocket- a record-setting sixth flight for this particular rocket, which first flew and moored back in December 2017. Today’s start includes a method blueprint to test elements of NASA’s Deorbit, Descent and Landing Sensor technology, which will be supported key automation for use in future landers for the Moon and Mars that will be able to intelligently identify and eschewed potential hazards on target landing zones.
This test will include recover of both the projectile and the capsule for the New Shepard launch vehicle. The Rocket will shore back at the West Texas launch and landing website with a controlled, engine-powered descent, and the vessel will condescend via parachute. The sheath will contain a variety of experiments and other warheads, including mailing-cards from Blue Origin’s nonprofit organization Club for the Future to be submitted by children from across the country.
The launch is set to take place at 8: 35 AM CDT( 9:35 AM EDT/ 6:35 AM PDT ), with the livestream above beginning at around 9:05 AM EDT( 6:05 AM PDT ). The torrent will include a sense from NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. Blue Origin is increasingly working closely with NASA, including on a human landing plan that could be the means for getting the next human cosmonauts to the surface of the Moon.
