Awesome! Spacecraft Landing Vertically, Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin

Awesome! Spacecraft landing vertically, Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin Shepard test flight.

Per Blue Origin,
The New Shepard system will provide frequent opportunities for researchers to fly experiments into suborbital space. Research experiments can take sensor readings of space, the sky and the Earth, and will experience high-quality microgravity environments (less than 0.001 g) for three or more minutes.
