Another chapter begins in the SpaceX and Blue Origin saga. Following the SpaceX’s Falcon 9 landing leg failure last week, Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin safely launched and landed its reusable rocket for the second time, an industry first. The smaller-in-stature New Shepard traveled 63 miles up, just breaking into space before landing…again.
The company wasted no time jumping back into their tennis match with SpaceX by posting the below tweet. It seems that the heat is on for commercial space travel.
