#video | Company Blue Origin has shown how to fly and land its rockets Source:

Just today Jeff Bezos, the head of the aerospace company Blue Origin, on his page on "Twitter" fully assembled rocket engine BE-4, which the company intends to use its new launch vehicle "New Glenn". That Bezos decided not to stay and now have shared an animated video of how the rocket will fly.

The carrier rocket "New Glenn" will be able to output in low earth orbit a payload weighing up to 50 tonnes to 14 tonnes into geosynchronous orbit, then the first step would be to make a soft controlled landing on a floating platform (hi Elon musk with his floating barge "Of Course I Still Love You"). It should be noted that the company has repeatedly landed the first steps to your more compact missiles, "New Shepherd" on solid ground, however, the complexity of these launches was not to compare with the orbital missile launch "Falcon 9", which were landed after the withdrawal of useful cargo into orbit.

At the last event Satellite 2017 Jeff Bezos also said that the first private customer of the company who is going to use the booster "New Glenn", will become Eutelsat – French television Corporation and provider of mobile communication — which is going to launch a new geostationary satellite. It should happen, according to a press release Eutelsat, sometime in 2021 or 2022.

Bezos also shared that a key objective of his company is to reduce the cost of satellite launches, which is about the same, what he wants to achieve the same SpaceX. New booster "New Glenn" will be presented in two versions. One that will consist of two stages and to use multiple engines BE-4, is shown in the animated videos. A three-stage version will be used by the company for delivery to the lander "Blue Moon" on the moon. However, none of these versions does not rise into space until at least 2020.

When viewing the animated video it becomes clear how different the "New Glenn" from the rocket "Falcon 9" from SpaceX. Rocket company Blue Origin, for example, will use a system of aerodynamic control that will help and guide the first stage of the "New Glenn" when landing. It is reported that, in addition, such a system would negate the need to use the brake pulse when re-entering the atmosphere.
