Full Story: Huffington Post 18 Nov

Blue Origin, known as an Ultra Secretive company, has recently issued a video of the test of a Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) Rocket. The rocket in the video is company's suborbital space vehicle, known as the New Shepard, and was launched from a Blue Origin site in West Texas.

While you may watch the video at Full Story, herein under are four shots from the video, in which the rocket is seen taking off, going up (photo 1) and then coming down vertically (photo 2-4).

 


These kind of rockets are likely to reduce costs and improve efficiency.
