Blue Origin has beaten SpaceX as it became the first company to re-launch and land its New Shepard rocket.
This is the first time a rocket has managed to complete two missions. According to Blue Origin, it plans to continue launching and re-landing the rocket over and over again. Blue Origin had to make some modifications to the original rocket for its re-launch and landing to be successful too. It had new parachutes fitted in its crew capsule on the top of the rocket.
Blue Origin’s New Shepard is being pegged to take human passengers into suborbital space in the future.
