Blue Origin will return to flight with uncrewed mission on Dec. 18

Blue Origin will end its 15-month spaceflight hiatus next week, if all goes according to plan.

The company, which was founded by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, hasn’t flown since its New Shepard suborbital vehicle suffered an anomaly during an uncrewed research flight on Sept. 12, 2022. But that long drought is about to end.
