Blue Origin restart

This launch is also a resumption of Blue Origin's tourist flights, as in August 2022 an unmanned rocket failed in flight, and consequently led to an incident investigation under the supervision of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Internationally recognized from space, the journey goes further and 100 km above the earth will allow crew members to float in zero gravity before returning to Earth. It will be a launch broadcast live on the Blue Origin website.

Regarding the 2022 incident, the FAA overseeing the investigation found the cause to be a structural failure of a higher operating temperature engine nozzle. And that led to taking 21 corrective measures.
