Blue Origin’s new flight into space is delayed | Digital Trends Spanish

The new launch to space of Blue Origins, Jeff Bezos’ space company, has been delayed by one day and will now take off on Wednesday October 13 and not on October 12, as planned.

In a concise statement, Blue Origin indicated that the launch of the New Shepard had to be postponed but not due to technical or crew problems, but simply due to the weather north of Van Horn, in the state of Texas.

Due to forecasted winds in West Texas we are pushing # NS18 launch target to Wednesday, October 13. Liftoff is targeted for 8:30 am CDT / 13:30 UTC. Live broadcast begins at T-90 mins on Stay tuned for more details.

Blue Origins also ensures that the weather is the only factor that can alter the launches and that everything else is ready and prepared to reach space again.

This second launch of the New Shepard rocket will carry four people in its crew. Among them will be William Shatner, an actor known for playing Captain James Kirk on Star Trek a few decades ago. Shatner, currently 90, will be the oldest person ever to reach space and beating the record of 82-year-old Wally Funky, who flew on the first Blue Origin voyage.

Along with William Shatner will also travel: Audrey Powers, vice president of missions and operations of Blue Origin, Glen de Vries, founder of the company Metadata and Cris Boshuizen, co-founder of the company Planet Labs and also a former engineer of NASA.

The next flight of the New Shepard and is named NS-18, for the eighteenth launch of the space vehicle. The trajectory will take you slightly above the Karman line, located 100 kilometers (62 miles) from the Earth’s surface, and it will be a very short trip, lasting no more than 12 minutes until the capsule separates from the rocket and returns to Earth with the four astronauts safe and sound.

The flight can be followed live on the Blue Origin channel on YouTube.
