On March 31, Blue Origin successfully completed its fourth human spaceflight and 20th overall flight for New Shepard.

The third crewed flight of a Blue Origin New Shepard launch system was conducted today. The "RSS First Step" left Earth just after 10:00 am ET for a quick flight above the Karman Line followed by a perfect landing of the booster and space capsule at the Texas launch site.

Blue Origin successfully completed New Shepard's first human flight today with four private citizens onboard.

New Shepard flew again for the eighth time on April 29, 2018, from Blue Origin's West Texas Launch Site.

Jeff Bezos has a customer for his New Glenn launch vehicle, Eutelsat, which he announced at Satellite 2017 this morning in Washington, DC. While still years away from operations, Blue Origin has been making steady progress in a step-by-step fashion. It is this stead process "in the right sequence" that Jeff Bezos views as being most important to his company's success.

At Satellite 2017 this morning Jeff Bezos of Blue Origin, unveiled a new video introducing the New Glenn rocket which follows in SpaceX's footsteps in returning the first stage for future reuse.

Blue Origin just completed an apparently flawless in-flight aboard of its New Shepard launch vehicle. The capsule separated and made a perfect landing. The booster continued, undaunted, to space and then made a textbook landing.

Our mascot is the tortoise. We paint one on our vehicles after each successful flight. Our motto is "Gradatim Ferociter" - step by step, ferociously.
