Blue Origin successfully tests its crew escape system

 

Blue Origin’s escape system test went by without a hitch. Jeff Bezos’ private spaceflight outfit successfully ejected the crew capsule from the New Shepherd rocket about 45 seconds after launch, shooting it away at about 400MPH before parachutes carried it safely to Earth. On top of this, Blue Origin landed New Shepherd again — there were worries that the capsule’s rocket would damage the booster and prevent it from landing safely.
