Blue Origin’s New Shepard completed its 11th flight on Thursday from the company’s test facility in west Texas.
New Shepard lifted off at 8:32 CDT. The capsule reached an unofficial altitude of 346,406 ft (105.6 km/65.6 miles) during a flight that lasted 10 minutes 10 seconds. The capsule floated down under three parachutes after the rocket touched down safely on a landing pad.
Blue Origin said it plans to begin flying passengers later this year aboard a new capsule that has already arrived at the Texas test site.
