However, Blue Origin hopes to fly crew on upcoming flights. New Shepard only has the ability to launch on a suborbital trajectory with an apex (the highest point in a ballistic trajectory) of about 119 km (74 miles) – their record. This flight will aim to gather more data about the flight to ensure that it is safe for humans.For the first time in the New Shepard program, Blue Origin will use their staff members to act as astronauts for every phase of launch operations besides the flight itself. Prior to launch, these “astronauts” will enter the capsule and perform a communications check with a Blue Origin Capsule Communicator (CAPCOM) with the hatch closed. The astronauts will then exit the capsule before it lifts off from the pad.Shortly after the landing, the “astronauts” will enter the capsule and close the hatch as if they had just landed. This will allow recovery teams to travel to the landed capsule and rehearse their recovery efforts which include crew exit. These events will allow Blue Origin to conduct and rehearse their launch sequence with the addition of passengers without risking humans lives on a spaceflight.NS-15 will be the second flight of the NS4 rocket. NS4 has some improved accessibility panels for easier cleaning and checkouts on the hardware.Courtesy of Blue Originwww.blueorigin.comhttps://spaceofficial.com/SPACE (Official) We love SpaceDo you?► Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/space_official_com/► Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2258141917812002► Follow us on Tiktok: https://www.tiktok.com/@spaceofficial.com
