New Shepard rocket landing on December 12, 2017. It is a reusable, vertical-takeoff, vertical-landing suborbital crewed spacecraft.

Named after Mercury astronaut Alan Shepard, the first American to go to space, Name Shepard’s development started in 2006, while full-scale engine development started in the early 2010s and was complete by 2015.

When a spacecraft reaches the space, but not complete one orbital revolution, that’s called a “suborbital spaceflight”.

Uncrewed flight testing of the complete New Shepard vehicle (propulsion module and space capsule) began in 2015.

The first crewed test flight is planned to occur in 2019. If the crewed tests are successful, Blue Origin has announced that tickets would begin to be sold for commercial flights.
