Following Blue Origin’s NS-12 Rocket Launch
Blue Origin, Billionaire Jeff Bezos’ spaceflight company, is rescheduled to launch its NS-12 reusable spacecraft on Wednesday, December 11. Watch it LIVE.
UPDATE (12/11/19 at 11am ET): Blue Origin announced on Twitter that the launch is looking good for Wednesday, December 11 at 11a CT, but they are closely monitoring fog in the area. For real-time updates, follow Blue Origin's Twitter account.
Don't miss the launch via Blue Origin's live webcast.
Blue Origin’s suborbital New Shepard flight was originally planned to launch and land on Tuesday, December 10 from its West Texas launch site, but it was postponed due to inclement weather. The rescheduled launch is planned for Wednesday, December 11 with the liftoff time to be determined. Of course, this is also pending ideal weather conditions.
The NS-12 mission is Blue Origin's 12th New Shepard launch and 9th payload mission that will take its 100th commercial payload to space. The sweet part? This payload will contain 10,000 postcards from kids featuring their visions of our future in space from Blue Origin’s nonprofit Club for the Future. Blue Origin launched the Club for the Future in May to inspire children in space exploration.
But it’s not this spacecraft’s first rodeo. This particular New Shepard spacecraft made its first flight in December 2017, followed by two more flights in 2018 and two flights this year in January and May.
