We’ve received requests for video of the short hop test flight that took place earlier this year. Here are two videos of the flight.

Enjoy!

Cool, is this spacecraft meant for suborbital flights or is it supposed to go on top of something else?

If you read the site, there are graphics for 2 types of boosters, one suborbital and one orbital (first stage) booster.

The videos clearly show the current suborbital one. Wasn't that hard to figure out, now was it? :wink:

I have to say i kind of like this rocket. Nice to see it goes up on three engines and lands on two! Shame the high altitude flight went wrong. Sure looking forward to see what Blueorigin will bring in the future.

It seems both BO and SpaceX are moving towards powered VTVL for their first two stages.
