New Shepherd rocket to be test flown this year

Blue Origin to Launch Private Spaceship Test Flights This Year. The New Shepherd rocket will eventually take up to three passengers to sub-orbital space and return back to its launch pad.

Blue Origin isn’t releasing a launch date, but they say it will be later this year.

The article also says that tests of their BE-4 engine should begin in 2016 and be completed by 2017. That bodes well for ULA meeting Congress’ 2019 mandate for no more Russian engines.
