Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin Launches Rocket From West Texas


Blue Origin successfully completed the 13th New Shepard mission to space and back with a launch from its West Texas launch site.

It was the 7th consecutive flight for this particular vehicle, a record.  The launch site is located in Van Horn, Texas.

“Today's flight was inspiring. Using New Shepard to simulate landing on the Moon is an exciting precursor to what the Artemis program will bring to America,” said Bob Smith, CEO, Blue Origin. “Thanks to NASA for partnering with us, and congrats to the Blue Origin team on taking another step toward returning to the Moon to stay.”
