Bue, parece que el primer paso al viaje espacial rentable está cada vez más cerca...
Lanzaron una capsula con capacidad para 6 personas a 100km y lograron que el motor junto con la cápsula aterrizaran en una pieza, todo re utilizable aparentemente.
Gracias capitalismo pujante??
Space travel has come a long way since Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin orbited Earth in 1961. However, the one thing that has eluded scientists thus far is a rocket that can be used multiple times. Though that may not sound like a big deal, it is for companies that want to make suborbital travel available to everyone. That's because a large proportion of the cost goes towards building the rocket which only flies once. It is therefore no wonder that Blue Origin's successful launch and landing of the world's first reusable rocket is causing such excitement.
Called New Shepard in honor of Alan Shepard, the first American to orbit space, the rocket lifted off from the company's launch facility in Van Horn,Texas at 11:21 AM CT on November 23rd. It flew up to the planned altitude of just over 100.5km (329,839 feet), before heading down for a picture perfect landing just four and a half feet away from the center of the landing pad. What's amazing is that the entire journey was completed in a speedy quick eleven minutes!
