Historical Landing. Trips to space anyone?

"Blue Origin’s New Shepard space vehicle successfully flew to space, reaching its planned test altitude of 329,839 feet (100.5 kilometers) before executing a historic landing back at the launch site in West Texas."
If we are not able to ask skeptical questions, to interrogate those who tell us that something is true; to be skeptical of those in authority, then we're up for grabs..

When it's mid flight, it looks like a dongrocket. But super impressive that it vertically landed successfully

Very cool! Surprised this has not been a goal of more space vehicles.

That's cool! Can future versions of this rocket take people to Mars?

interesting reading the differences of the two..

This rocket looks far easier to use and seemingly worked like a charm, however it seems like the SpaceX rockets are trying to achieve much more than Bezo's current model here
Canucks - ftw!
