More Good News | Blue Origin New Shepard Prototype
I hesitated to publish this but I’ve now watched these videos a half a dozen times and it brings a smile to my face every time. Last week’s good news was the post on the 20$ tablet being manufactured in India. So this week it has to be this short but extraordinary video from Jeff Bezos, Amazon billionaire, and space enthusiast’s company Blue Origin which has been developing spacecraft. What amazing and positive things we humans can accomplish when we bring a fearlessness and inventive spirit to our collective endeavors. This is a vertical take off and vertical landing of a rocket and it is right out of any SciFi movie but something hetherto unattainable by rockets. It seems apparent that this is a serious engineering feat and one that will revolutionize space travel.
