Private rockets still flying (and landing)


This the landing, the fifth landing from the edge of space of this Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin booster, in a successful test of the crew capsule’s escape system. Watch it all here, scroll down to the video and begin it at 50:51.

Nice to know engineering work continues near Van Horn in West Texas without the mud-slinging and biased journalism of the presidential fandango. Should be said that our little Barry Hussein stimulated these private rocket ventures by forcing NASA to help them out while getting out of the way.

Texas first: soft rocket landing

Blue Origin, the private space launch company that operates off I-10 near Van Horn in far West Texas, has finally done it: launched a rocket 62 miles high and then brought it back to a soft landing.

The dream of science fiction since forever should dramatically reduce the costs of space flight. And we have Jeff Bezos, a co-founder of Amazon, to thank. Best way to do that would be to shop at Amazon today and every day.

Rockets Away

Quite a sight, Blue Origin’s first rocket launch southeast of El Paso off I-10 near Van Horn in far West Texas. It’s the latest example of the Lone Star rising.

With SpaceX’s new launch facilities at Boca Chica Beach on a sandy peninsula just east of Brownsville on the Gulf Coast, expected to be ready for Falcon Heavy launches in 2018, Texas will claim an ever-larger share of space commerce.

If the federal socialists can only control their desire to tax or regulate everything that moves.
