Jeff Bezos presented Blue Origin’s newest product: the New Glenn rocket, which features a reusable first stage. The company released a video detailing the rocket’s specs.
It doesn’t exist yet, but it already has a customer. Satellite provider Eutelsat will be the rocket’s first client.
The rocket’s inaugural trip is scheduled for 2021, giving Blue Origin a few years to perfect its reusable rocket technology. The company plans to safely land the rocket’s first stage and reuse it with a quick and simple turnaround process.
“We need to get to a place ultimately that is much more like commercial airliners,” Bezos said.
