BLUE ORIGIN'S NEW SHEPARD IS SET FOR MISSION NINE!

For the first time since October 2016, New Shepard will endure a risky escape motor test. This time, however, the sub-orbital rocket will be zooming to its highest altitude in its 3-year history and igniting a small engine housed in the bottom of the crew capsule.

"We are stressing the rocket to test that astronauts can get away from an anomaly at any time during flight."

During the test, New Shepard is bringing eight distinctive payloads - including experiments from Johns Hopkins University and Thailand space agency mu Space Corporation- as well as everyone's favorite flight dummy, Mannequin Skywalker (!!!), along for the ride.
