Amazon CEO's Blue Origin Rocket Has Its First Customer

Blue Origin’s BE-4 engine

Aerospace manufacturer Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos has posted the first-ever images of the fully-completed BE-4 liquid rocket engine on Twitter, giving the world a look at the technology that his company plans to use to send its New Glenn rockets to the moon and back.

"We think that our role as an industry leader is to stimulate competition so that there is a stream of innovation. and that access to space is easier", Belmer said.

A seven-page white paper prepared by space company Blue Origin - owned by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos - for the Nationals Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) outlines its interest in establishing a cargo storage facility on the moon by the mid-2020s.

"It's really a great partnership", he said of the contract with Eutelsat. And that mission is so important for us because that's a mission that can be flown many many times a year. The launch of Eutelsat's satellite on New Glenn likely won't occur until 2021 or 2022. Its New Shepard vehicle, which will someday bring tourists to the edge of space, has already conducted several successful first stage returns.

On Monday, March 6, the Amazon CEO whose spaceflight company Blue Origin competes with Elon Musk's SpaceX, tweeted a picture of the BE-4 rocket engine, which has been under development over the past four years. "The whole thing is very exciting". "Even in the early days of aviation one of the first uses of planes was 'barnstorming, '" or stunt pilot performances. Bezos recently described "the cost of admission.is quite high".

After remaining tight-lipped about its upcoming project, Blue Origin has unveiled its' New Glenn rocket to the public, with it expected to soar into the skies for the first time in 2019. "We'll reach a new equilibrium in this industry".

Blue Origin announced its New Glenn orbital rocket, named after John Glenn, the first American astronaut to orbit our planet, around September a year ago.

"You don't choose your passions, our passions choose you", he said. A test flight of the rocket is slated for 2020. "I've been passionate about it ever since".
