Blue Origin spaceship design is good to go

Blue Origin has shown off a color-coded image that depicts an analysis of computational fluid dynamics for their proposed next-generation Space Vehicle. While most of us already have headaches trying to get from point A to point B for our work and everyday lives, here is the rocket venture backed by billionaire Jeff Bezos, known as Blue Origin, which claims to have its design successfully tested, meaning it is ready to rock and roll after a bunch of wind-tunnel tryouts. Just in case you were wondering how come Blue Origin remained under the radar for the most part of its existence, that is because is shuns publicity, despite being one of the four companies which will receive $320 million from NASA in order to develop technologies for commercial space crew transports.

Part of Blue Origin’s press statement reads as follows, “Blue Origin successfully tested the design of its next-generation Space Vehicle, completing a series of wind tunnel tests to refine the aerodynamic characteristics of the spacecraft’s unique biconic shape. The tests were carried out as part of Blue Origin’s partnership with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) under the agency’s Commercial Crew Development (CCDev) program. Blue Origin is designing the Space Vehicle to provide safe, affordable transport of up to seven astronauts to low-Earth orbit and the International Space Station.”

Does this mean that space tourism is making a move in the right direction as well? After all, anything useful can be spun off Blue Origin’s research and development, which will go some way in making life a whole lot more affordable for those of us who want to head off to the next frontier for our holidays.
