Blue Origin has successful Pad Escape Test

“KENT, Wash. – Blue Origin conducted a successful Pad Escape test last week at its West Texas launch site, firing its pusher escape motor and launching a full-scale suborbital Crew Capsule from a launch vehicle simulator. The Crew Capsule traveled to an altitude of 2,307 feet under active thrust vector control before descending safely by parachute to a soft landing 1,630 feet downrange.” -Blue Origin

    Surprised I haven’t heard more about this one on the news!! But all eyes are on SpaceX or Soyuz, it seems. Hopefully this picks up some steam🙂

  2. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my
    own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but
    I had to ask!

    Reading one post on your website made me hooked instantly.
    Really, you are amazing!

  4. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to this superb blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS
    feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates
    and will share this blog with my Facebook group. Chat
    soon!
