Suborbital Science at Blue Origin Goes Public | Cosmic Log -

By Alan Boyle, Cosmic Log, Posted 11/30/09


" billionaire Jeff Bezos' usually secretive Blue Origin rocket venture raised the curtain today on three research experiments that are slated to take suborbital journeys on its prototype spaceship in two years' time."

"Blue Origin has said that the first experiments could fly during New Shepard's unmanned testing phase in 2011, and that experiments requiring human tending could be taken up starting in 2012. That schedule is still operative, but it's too early to be more specific about the launch timing."
