Blue Origin NEW SHEPARD Launch & Landing / Mission 9
New Shepard flew for the ninth time on July 18, 2018. During this mission, known as Mission 9 (M9), the escape motor was fired shortly after booster separation. The Crew Capsule was pushed hard by the escape test and we stressed the rocket to test that astronauts can get away from an anomaly at any time during flight. The mission was a success for both the booster and capsule. Most importantly, astronauts would have had an exhilarating ride and safe landing
VSS Unity, Virgin Galactic’s second SpaceShipTwo, completed its second successful supersonic, rocket-powered test flight on 29 May 2018, landing on the Mojave Air and Space Port. The rocket motor burned for the planned 31 seconds and propelled Unity to a speed of Mach 1.9 and an altitude of 114,500 ft.
