Blue Origin Tests Crew Capsule

Blue Origin Tests Crew Capsule

Blue Origin made history in early-2016 when they successfully launched a reused rocket. SpaceX did not complete the same task until a year later. Now Blue Origin is preparing to make history yet again. The company just tested their crew capsule yesterday. They’ve tested the capsule before, but this time they launched a rocket, separated the capsule, let the capsule fly for a short period, caught the rocket, then landed the capsule. No humans were aboard the capsule, just a dummy. However, Blue Origin has plans to achieve a manned flight as early as 2019.
