Blue Origin successfully launched its New Shepard suborbital vehicle on its latest test flight Wednesday. The vehicle lifted off from the company's West Texas launch site at 10:05 am EST (1505 GMT), with the propulsion module making a powered vertical landing about seven and a half minutes later, followed three minutes later by the crew capsule. The flight, the tenth in the overall New Shepard program, carried eight experiments for NASA's Flight Opportunities program. The company said it's on track to start flying people on the vehicle by the end of this year.
