New Shepard escape

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Blue Origin landed a successful in-flight abort test on Wednesday (Oct. 5), demonstrating that its crew capsule could escape in an emergency during launch if needed. The test was expected to result in the loss of the company’s New Shepard booster, which had made history in 2015 as the first rocket to reach space and then land vertically. But it also escaped, safely landing near where it launched and so is now bound for a museum.
