Using the same hardware from the successful launch and land rocket test last year Blue Origin have announced they have repeated the feat demonstrating that reuse is is the future of space travel.

This is the cool part of living in the future ... rockets landing movie styleeee.



Although all the flights so far undertaken by Mr Bezos have been unmanned, he does eventually plan to fly passengers.
"The very same New Shepard booster that flew above the Karman line and then landed vertically at its launch site last November has now flown and landed again, demonstrating reuse," the businessman said.
"This time, New Shepard reached an apogee of 333,582ft (101.7km) before both capsule and booster gently returned to Earth for recovery and reuse."
One hundred kilometres is regarded as the official boundary of space. New Shepard does not achieve the velocities that would allow the system to make orbit and stay up, but Mr Bezos says his Blue Origin space company is working on a family of rockets that would make this possible

Is it just me or would Musk and Bezos make perfect Bond villains.

Or maybe just a couple of space cadets


Anyway, that particular set-up seems to work well. I just wonder is it equipped to do space orbit, re-entry and return...aside from the lack of power power that is?
