Blue Origin’s BE-3 completes Acceptance Testing

Blue Origin Completes Acceptance Testing of BE-3 Engine for New Shephard Suborbital Flight. This is the first hydrogen engine developed in the US in over a decade. It can throttle thrust from 20K foot-pounds to 110K foot-pounds, and can be reused. The BE-3 will be used for Blue Origin’s New Shepherd suborbital rocket and will also be modified as an upper stage motor.

I’ve been a bit of a skeptic about Blue Origin, primarily because they haven’t produced anything. Well, now they have, so Congrats!!
