Blue Origin Rocket Sticks Third Landing Test

Jeff Bezos’ space transportation company Blue Origin successfully launched and landed for the third time a suborbital rocket capable of carrying six passengers, taking another step on its path in developing reusable boosters, the company said on Saturday. The New Shepard rocket and capsule blasted off from a launch site in West Texas on Saturday at an undisclosed time, and landed minutes later back at a landing pad, the company said. The capsule, which was flying autonomously, parachuted to a nearby site and was recovered, the company said. “Perfect booster landing,” Bezos wrote on Twitter. Blue Origin declined to comment
