Blue Origin's NS-13 Mission: NASA Tipping Point Partnership



On Tuesday, October 13, 2020, Blue Origin launched mission NS-13 to space and back. On this flight, New Shepard flew 12 commercial payloads, including the Deorbit, Descent, and Landing Sensor Demonstration with NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate under a Tipping Point partnership. This was the first payload to fly mounted on the exterior of a New Shepard booster, opening the door to a wide range of future high-altitude sensing, sampling, and exposure payloads.

  1. It's a lie that NASA could only target within a radius of miles. One of the later Apollo missions landed very close to a previous probe site just to show how well they could target a specific location. They suited up and actually walked over and retrieved a camera off of the original probe and brought it back to earth.

  2. I like seeing all these people so enthused, so excited by what they do, but… when I was a kid they were doing it to acquire knowledge, now it's only attempted with the idea of potential future profit. Space exploration to space exploitation by sociopathic billionaires and then undoubtedly leading to space warfare. I truly hope humanity never walks on another planet. Stay safe.

  3. Blue Origins, basically designed the perfect Space Elevator, in reality a roping/reel elevator is impossible, due to the Jetstream atmosphere layer, Jeff always talked about Mt Ararat, being a better visit then Mars, why not a elevator there & back, just do away with parachutes, but just for emergency reasons use.

  4. Why focus on moon. but you haven't launch any orbital rockets? i might say that papi elon is the best.

  5. Bizarre to me these guys are celebrating their recreation of technology we had almost 80 years ago now. Where's the ACTUAL PROGRESS here? I'm not seeing anything worth watching.

  6. livecams are boring show the live mars feed on charlie base internet boring fuck…. i mean i can just remote view it tho so hahah

  7. what bout solar warden and radiant guardian prolly not revelant for us to conciouness be using warp drive everyday n stuff yet but we do already in a astufs

  9. Unpopular opinion: Blue Origin rockets look ugly! (I said it)
    I know it’s not about the looks but c’mon!!! – it’s inspiring to see a rocket launch and land.

  10. How many times have they launched new Shepard? Seems like if they’re planning on people riding in it soon they should have launched 100+ times. It’s reusable and only one engine so no reason not too test the heck out of it.

  11. con of United Launcher is having a lander taller than its crew. way too hard to climb up for descend.

  12. This is what you have to show in the year 2020 ?
    Pfff…
    This proves that throwing just money on rockets WILL NOT be enough.
    Goooooo SPACEX !!!

  13. Great Advantages of the Moon:
    01. Gravity in Space (Highly significant)
    02. Water in Space (Highly significant)
    03. Raw material Processing of Asteroids (Highly significant)
    04. Better space telescopes e.g. to explore the exoplanets
    05. Rapid subsequent delivery of equipment (e.g. for repairs)
    06. Stimulation of the robot and tunneling industry as a whole
    07. Almost live robot control from Earth
    08. Strengthening global cooperation
    09. Moon cemetery & starry sky lunar tourism
    10. Biological and civilization backup archive (in lava tube colony)
    11. Proud of the greatness of the moon civilization
    12. Moon lift and mass driver possible
    13. Low orbital escape speed (2.3 km / s at the equator)
    14. Hyperloop from the raw material asteroid mining area to the mass driver base
    15. Extraction of raw materials for parasols in front of Venus
    16. Probably Fusion Power Plants (Infinite Energy)
    17. Moon logo laser advertising (from the "gateway" in the moon orbit)
    18. Rolling out green soil around the bases over the moon sand
    19. Increase in the lunar albedo (by leveling the craters and pits)
    20. Space light mirrors in lunar orbit bring permanent solar energy to the moon
    21. Solar wind power plant (energy generation on the moon from the sun's electrons)
    22. Zeppelin halls for building large spaceships
    23. Exploring the billion year old moon
    24. Exploration of the asteroids that struck billions of years
    25. Advanced bacterial and animal research for genetic engineering
    26. Evolutionary marine animal and marine plant research at 16% gravity
    27. The civilizational base for the Martian moon expedition

  14. JESUS LOVES YOU ALL SO MUCH that HE was willing to die on the cross for everyone, Then HE was willing to go to HELL for US ALL and after 3 days HE rose from the dead to give eternal life to all
    who will believe, obey and walk in personal relationship with HIM to the END. ALL who reject JESUS will be condemned to HELL forever.(Bible Scriptures: John 3:1-21/1st Corinthians 15:1-21/Romans 10:1-21 NKJV) This is good news for these troubled times.

  15. They had miles wide targets, but they also had brains, massive training and big balls. So Apollo 12 landed 200m from surveyor. Just trolling around.

  16. I can't wait til there are like 10+ countries landing on the moon via there own Space Agencies. Only then can we start doing great things. I don't include China in my future, in fact I hope all their rockets blowup on the launch pad. Thanks for Covid-19 Pricks!

  17. Does it stay up long enough for a rich person to JO before coming down? Such an advancement for humanity good going Jeff.

  18. the dinetcs lander is much better as a crew transport, i respect blue origin but its just to complicated with like three diffrent moduels. im not even talking about starship which will be great as a mass transporter to make the moonbase while dinetics will be the crew transport, kinda like spacex bieng the saturn 5 and launching skylab with its first crew, but the rutine crew changes was made by saturn 1b or in this case dynetecs

  19. Given the Apollo flights Luna landings last minute adjustments for acquiring a "flat" no crater small pad area one asks how SpaceX would be able to determine that a touchdown place is not a "tipping over" place
