Blue Origin’s BE-4 Engine Completes First Hot-Fire Test
October 20, 2017

Blue Origin this week conducted the first hot fire test of the company’s BE-4 engine, hoped to become the future workhorse for Blue’s own New Glenn heavy-lift launch vehicle as well as United Launch Alliance’s upcoming Vulcan rocket. Wednesday’s brief test firing marked a major step towards certifying the engine for service before the end of the decade to support the company’s ambitious goals of becoming a major competitor on the commercial launch market.

Gunderson: we’re developing New Shepard primarily to get practice in reusability; think there’s a suborbital market to sustain it. #vonbraun

Oh! New Shepard back into test flights (new vehicle). Now to see if Blue Origin will say anything. In the early days it took several hours until they did.

Test was successful, I'm told, but wait for BO to confirm the test overview (which may take a long time as they are likely going to work a high production video of the test first!)

New Shepard Mission 7 from @BlueOrigin's West Texas site at 1659 UTC flew Crew Capsule 2.0 to 99.4 km apogee; booster to 99.3 km apogee (MSL); both landed safely
 
Про капсулу "New Shepard Crew Capsule" - везде сказано, что это новая (но не последняя) версия, с окошками.
Но вот ничего толком не сказано про саму ракету "New Shepard vehicle".

Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos says his space venture, Blue Origin, launched the latest version of its New Shepard suborbital spaceship today for the company’s first test flight in 14 months, with an instrumented test dummy seated aboard.
...
Between November 2015 and October 2016, Blue Origin put an earlier version of the New Shepard through five successful flights to the edge of space and back.
Сколько было New Shepard всего? Или они на 1й версии и летают?
 
Первый экземпляр ракеты разбился в первом же пуске. Второй успешно слетал пять раз. Теперь полетел третий.
 
Jeff Bezos says Blue Origin spaceship gives test dummy a ‘great ride’

Цитата
Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos says his space venture, Blue Origin, launched the latest version of its New Shepard suborbital spaceship today for the company’s first test flight in 14 months, with an instrumented test dummy seated aboard.

“He had a great ride,” Bezos said tonight in a tweet.

The uncrewed, straight-up, straight-down trip was conducted at Blue Origin’s testing ground in West Texas. The video that Bezos included with his tweet showed the New Shepard blasting off and rising above a wide-open spread of ranchland.

In addition to the dummy, which was nicknamed “Mannequin Skywalker,” the New Shepard crew capsule carried 12 commercial, research and educational payloads, Blue Origin said.
