Blue Origin NS-23 Flight Ends Early Due To An Anomaly
After several launch delays the Blue Origin NS-23 mission took off a few minutes ago. Just over 2 minutes into the flight the crew capsule separated from the booster. The Blue Origin commentator said that there had been an “in-flight anomaly” but did not eleaborate”.
Images posted on Twitter seem to suggest an engine issue on the booster.
The RSS H.G. Wells capsule then went through the familiar series of drogue parachutes followed by main parachutes and landed (otherwise) without incident
Blue Origin closed their webcast by saying “You can see how our back-up systems kick into action when there is an anomaly. Ending the webcast today. More info on @blueorigin”.
