A few months ago SpaceX completed its 100th raptor engine, this extraordinary milestone was achieved in just 29 months, a little over two years blue origin’s rocket engine’s development started, work on the be 4 engine since 2011.
Importantly, they said the be4 would be ready for flight by 2017, but at this very moment, blue origin’s powerful be4 engine is more than four years late. The first flight test of the new engine is now expected no earlier than 2022, on the Vulcan rocket, this is a big problem and we need to talk about it. So why it is said that Blue Origin’s BE 4 engine manufacture is a complete FAIL, whereas SpaceX’s raptor is the leading example of the industry? Let’s find out.
Huge thanks to all these amazing SpaceX Artists. Please follow them and support them through Payoneer and Twitter.
