The roccket was named The New Shepard, after the name of the first American in space. It delivered in space an empty crew capsule which returned in safe conditions, with parachutes, 11 minutes later. In the teleconference, Bezos described the ability to land a rocket so it can be used again. This will cut costs of putting vehicles into space. The progress in research was slow but consistent. “We are on the verge of a new Golden Age in rocketry. I believe one day all rockets will have landing gear,” the owner of Blue Origin added. Bezos said Blue Origin will take a human crew into space “when we’re ready and not before”. Blue Origin is building a bigger, more sophisticated orbital spacecraft that will take off from Cape Canaveral in Florida.
