Meet New Glenn, Blue Origin’s monster rocket that will carry humans to space


Blue Origin, the space project of Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, has unveiled its next rocket: the New Glenn.

Named after the first American to orbit Earth, John Glenn, the vessel will be built in two different configurations with the biggest being 95 metres tall.

It has been designed to be reusable and to launch satellites, as well as people, into space from the Cape Canaveral air force base, Florida. Due to be built and launch within 10 years, the New Glenn will be competing to take humans to the Moon and beyond. Read more at Wired.
