Jeff Bezos’ space company Blue Origin on Tuesday conducted the latest test flight of its rocket New Shepard at its facility in the West Texas desert.
The mission did not have passengers on board, although New Shepard launches with a capsule on top that is designed to carry as many as six people for a mission. Known as NS-13, this mission was the 13th test flight of the system – as well as a record seventh consecutive launch for the rocket booster carrying the capsule, as it has landed six times after prior missions.
NS-13 was originally scheduled to launch on Sept. 24, but an issue with the rocket’s power supply delayed the mission.
New Shepard is designed to carrying people on a ride past the edge of space, with the capsules on previous test flights
