The Blue Origin New Shepard rocket flew again today. It performed a similar test to what the old Falcon Hopper used to do and the BFR demo rocket
will be doing on a regular basis. This is a step towards a full orbital flight. They also tested their capsule as well.
At this point, the New Shep seems to be a great first stage, but BO hasn't completed the second stage development. OTOH, the plan appears to be for
BO to scale up for their New Glenn rocket. Time will tell.
