SPACE reports that Blue Origin announced Wednesday “that it’s targeting Aug. 31 for NS-23, the next flight of its New Shepard suborbital vehicle. New Shepard is best known for taking space tourists on brief trips to the final frontier, but NS-23 won’t haul anyone aloft – just 36 payloads provided by universities, other institutions and students.” NS-23 is “scheduled to launch at 9:30 a.m. EDT (1330 GMT) on Aug. 31 from Blue Origin’s West Texas site.”
