Blue Origin Rocket Launches Postcard from Thousands of Children to Space
Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket, orbit from thousands of children from around the world, sent a postal orbit tour. The postcards in which the children’s dreams and hopes for the future were written were sent back to the children after the flight.
Founded by Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos, the Blue Origin space research company took off on Wednesday to orbit a New Shepard rocket, which included cargo as well as postcards from thousands of children. The New Shepard rocket is part of the training project of Blue Origin’s for Club for the Future Blue.
Caitlin Dietrich, Blue Origin’s public relations manager, said on the air during the launch of the rocket: “Our first goal was to collect postcards from students around the world. In each postcard, students’ hopes and dreams about the future are written. So far, we have managed to collect several thousand postcards from around the world. ”
Postcards will be sent back to students after space flight
Etr Today we send some of the postcards into space with New Shepard. We will then stamp each postcard with the uçuş flight in space ’stamp and send it back to the students. This is going to be something cool. ”
The rocket took off at 11.53 am local time on Wednesday and landed in Blue Origin’s West Texas area 10 minutes later. With this flight, the rocket realized its sixth flight. New Shepard rockets had a total of twelve flights. The name New Shephard comes from the astronaut Alan Shepard, who made his first space flight in 1961.
In addition to the postcards that were sent, the New Shepard capsule included scientific work from NASA and the University of Colombia and selected projects from the Art in Space competition sponsored by the rock band OK Go.
NASA recently announced the completion of the main part of the rocket to take the astronaut to the Moon
NASA announced that the main part of the rocket, which was developed for the astronaut Moon voyage, which was planned to be realized in 2024, was completely produced. The total length of the rocket is said to be 65 meters.
The Moon voyage in 1969 was clear proof that the United States finished the race for the leader. But since then no astronaut has been sent back to the Moon. NASA aims to end this situation in 2024. NASA’s Space Lauch System, which is 65 meters long, continues its work without slowing down.
This new NASA rocket will be the most powerful rocket ever developed, and the speed of the capsule with the Orion crew on top of the rocket will reach Mach 23 as it leaves the vehicle. This is equivalent to 23 times the speed of sound.
