Blue Origin'sNew Shepard rocket will conduct its ninth test flight on Wednesday with a short hop pushing the vehicle to its limits - in order to satisfy safety parameters, whilst also carrying numerous payloads in the capsule.
Parachutes deploy to gently land the capsule, while the rocket reignites its engine to land upright on the ground.
So far, the New Shepard tests have had no humans inside.
Blue Origin's trademark flight dummy "Mannequin Skywalker" was aboard the flight, along with a handful of science and technology payloads, including a test of a new in-space Wi-Fi system, textiles for planned company space suits and other research projects.
Launch commentator Ariane Cornell promised it would be soon. The company has not said what the price of the tickets would be. But the company Blue Origin has found a way out of this situation.
The New Shepard rocket test launch was to test the vehicle escape motor which is created to propel the crew capsule away from the booster rocket.
The launch included a number of different scientific instruments, medical items, and testing materials, along with Blue Origin's "Fly My Stuff" program, where the company's employees send their own materials into space. The launch from Blue Origin's test site in West Texas is set to occur at 14:00 UTC - with the test campaign now in the final leg ahead of carrying paying customers.
The mission went according to plan, with both spacecraft landing safely at the end of the 11-minute mission.
The design of New Shepard will enable to fly six passengers more than 62 miles beyond the Earth into suborbital space.
Experiments hitching a ride on the test flight Wednesday include a privately-developed in-cabin WiFi transmitter, and a package of NASA sensors to measure cabin pressure, temperature, carbon dioxide levels, acoustic conditions, and acceleration inside the crew capsule.
While this flight was primarily meant to demonstrate the vehicle's escape system, the crew capsule carried eight research and technology demonstration payloads, similar to what the vehicle has done on previous suborbital test flights.
However, a Blue Origin employee with first-hand knowledge of the pricing strategy said that the company will be charging passengers in the range of $200,000 to $300,000.
