People are dreaming of reaching space and knowing what lied there, finding out the hidden secrets that only the astronauts are opportune to discover, and viewing the Earth from above. To make this come true, there is manufactured rocket created prior to this kind of mission.

Blue Origin has manufactured a rocket named New Shepard, which is designed for space tourism. It will take the passengers into the suborbital space inside of crew capsule. This capsule is featuring the large six observation windows, which is the largest ever created for spacecraft, according to Blue Origin. The company is founded by Jeff Bezos, an entrepreneur who made his fortune with the Amazon.

In 2013, Bezos bought the Washington Post, and the Forbes magazine had ranked him as the wealthiest person all over the world last March 2018. He got the highest ranks with the net worth of $112 billion.

New Shepard was given a name after Alan Shepard, an astronaut of NASA Mercury program and is the first American to blast off in space in 1961.

The New Shepard is said to be fully reusable, and in the recent month, the company had made seven test launching to make sure the reliability and function of the rocket. Last November 2015, New Shepard is the first reusable space rocket that able to successfully make soft landing on the ground , and beats out more popular SpaceX Falcon 9 booster by many weeks.

According to the article released by the SpaceNews, Blue Origin will not be bringing the passengers in space before the 2018 ends. However, the company had released details regarding the flight path.

If the passengers’ flight happens, the rocket will launch vertically for around two and a half minutes right before the rocket’s main engine cuts off. After that, the capsule will separate from the rocket, and the passengers will become weightless for nearly four minutes at the eleven-minute flight.

At the altitude of around 307,000 feet, the passengers will be high enough to see the curvature of the Earth. In space, the spacecraft would coast for few minutes before it re-enters the atmosphere. The rocket will then be landing using the autonomous and rocket-powered vertical landing system. However, the passengers of the Blue Origin will have the chance to enjoy the over ten times the space than the New Shepard in Freedom 7 spacecraft.

Blue Origin is an American aerospace company. It is also an aerospace manufacturer and provides spaceflight services. It has its headquarter in Washington. It was founded in the year 2000 by Jeff Bezos and is the first company to launch a reusable rocket.

Space tourism is a new form of tourism. By this, people and tourists can visit outer space. Blue origin manufactures such spaceflight for the purpose of space tourism. New Shepard is a rocket manufactured and launched by Blue Origin. This rocket is designed in such a way that people can easily travel to outer space without any difficulty and discrepancy.

The rocket capsule is mammoth in size, comprising of really husky observation windows. It has a total of six such observation windows. Blue origin has acknowledged this to be their largest ever constructed windows for spacecraft.

New Shepard was launched first in the year 2015 and is considered to be the first reusable rocket that made a successful soft landing on the ground. It is also completely reusable and has made seven test launches since the month of April of this very year i.e. 2018.

Description of New Shepard –

The height of the rocket – 18 meters (60 feet)

Altitude – 307,000 feet approximately

Crew or passenger capacity – 6 people

The volume of spacecraft – 530 cubic feet

Stages of Rocket – 1 (liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen)

The proper function and commutation by this craft will not commence before late 2018. The flight path has also been released from the Blue Origin Company. Before the cut off of the main engine, the rocket will be launched vertically.

The flight will last for a total of 11 minutes and within those minutes, the crew members or the passengers of the rocket will be weightless for about a total of 4 minutes. The interior of the rocket capsule is big enough for six people to float around and the view of the curves of the earth through the big windows.

Blue Origin received a total of $3.7 million from NASA in order to launch such spacecraft. The New Shepard 1 made a safe touch down and was successfully done so in the year 2015. New Shepard 2 was launched on November 23rd in the year 2015. The capsule made a successful landing and also reused a booster. The latest rocket capsule launched was New Shepard 3 which was deployed in the year 2017. It used a booster and a mannequin named Skywalker which was considered to be successful.
