UPDATE: 7:09 AM CDT / 12:09 UTC — SEPTEMBER 25
New Shepard NS-13 launch is a no go for today. We are working to verify a fix on a technical issue and taking an extra look before we fly. New launch target forthcoming.
UPDATE from September 24th: The Blue Origin NS-13 launch has been rescheduled for September 25th at 11am EDT.
Blue Origin’s first New Shepard (NS-13) mission of 2020 was scheduled for today but was delayed firstly due to weather complications and later scrubbed due to concerns Blue Origin announced regarding a power glitch. Today’s launch would have been the seventh time the rocket has flown and would have set a new record for rocket recycling.
New Shepard has flown more than 100 payloads to space across 10 sequential flights. Payloads on board NS-13 include experiments from Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Southwest Research Institute, NASA Flight Opportunities, Space Lab Technologies, University of Florida, Space Environment Technologies, and mu Space Corp.
