Space News reported that Blue Origin rescheduled a test flight of the company’s “New Shepard suborbital vehicle for Jan. 22 as the company edges closer to flying people into space.” The company announced the new launch date for the NS-10 flight on Sunday. Blue Origin will launch the mission from a test site in West Texas. The flight will be the first for New Shepard “since a July 18 launch that tested the abort motor in the crew capsule.” The vehicle will carry “nine experiments provided by NASA’s Flight Opportunities program,” including “microgravity research payloads in fields like fluid dynamics and planetary science to technology demonstrations that will monitor conditions in the vehicle.” (Image: New Shepard launch, April 2015.
