Blue Origin, The advertising company established by Amazon's Jeff Bezos is about to start & # 39; e 10th start of & # 39; a New Shepard slot machine, with its capsule fully experiments. The start, which was originally scheduled for a month, but for various reasons for free, will be tomorrow at 6:50 pm Pacific time.
New Shepard is a sub-orbital space-viewing platform, not a satellite launch. But it uses a traditional method to compare the scope of one's space compared to Virgin Galacticus's previously involved mother-space combiner, which is the last frame of & # 39; a space in a fourth month of & # 39; a fourth test was written.
The skirt goes straight, as does skirt, runs the receiving speed, and shuts off the capsule from the top just before the Carman line, it's officially, as usual, space of & # 39; the atmosphere of the earth separates. The capsule, after pulling out of its upcoming tunic, shakes it back to the surface under a parachute.
This is the plan for declining the residence date, that you can start a whole hour here, or for T-0. But instead of a dummy tray or "Mannequin Skywalker", the company has human standards in testing & # 39; Calling a crew capsule, Mission 10 has a whole collection of experiments on board.
There are nine experiments in full, all flipped by NASA's Program Flight Opportunities. They are detailed here. Most are already back in other weeks or even in the Blue Orient, but of course repetition and iteration are important for their development.
"The chance to fly our use helps us not only to verify and compare data for various flight profiles, but also test facilities and upgrades," says NASA Kathryn Hurlbert, who submits the Suborbital Flight Experiment Monitor-2 project Johnson Space Center.
More Flight Opportunities spots will be available on future NASA sponsored launches, so if your laboratory has an experiment trying to get a sub-orbital rocket, get it to the manager when the shutdown ends.
