Private space flight company Blue Origin will attempt again to launch their New Shepard rocket Wednesday morning.
The company—owned by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos— nixed their plans yesterday for a launch due to weather conditions. If successful, this morning’s flight will be the first test flight in seven months at the company’s Van Horn facility.
Blue Origin is in a “weather hold” this morning because of dense fog in the area, but the company believes a launch will still happen.
According to the company, New Shepard will carry several experiments or “payloads” on board, including some from NASA. New Shepard is a reusable rocket—designed to take these experiments and one day humans—to the altitude where space begins.
