I love anything related to space, especially space travel.
On November 23rd, Jeff Bezos’ private company Blue Origin successfully launched a rocket into sub-orbit and returned it to Earth. The New Shepard rocket flew to a height of 329,839 feet. It then returned to Earth, fired its rockets, and landed four feet from its launch pad. That is absolutely amazing and it means we are getting closer to recreational space travel.
Blue Origin’s main goal at the moment is to create the Astronaut Experience where an average person can travel into sub-orbit and experience a fantastic view and weightlessness for four minutes.
I bet Lance Bass is jumping up and down about this. Check out the video below.
