Blue Origin New Shepard reusable rocket

“Now safely tucked away at our launch site in West Texas is the rarest of beasts—a used rocket,” says Jeff Bezos, founder of Blue Origin in Kent, Wash. “Blue Origin’s reusable New Shepard space vehicle flew a flawless mission—soaring to 329,839 feet and then returning through 119-mph high-altitude crosswinds to make a gentle, controlled landing just four and a half feet from the center of the pad. Full reuse is a game changer, and we can’t wait to fuel up and fly again.”
