The U.S. Air Force sponsors the New Glenn program from Blue Origin


The U.S. Air Force sponsors the New Glenn program from Blue Origin
Jeff Bezos's company, Blue Origin which is engaged in production and design of space rockets mainly for delivery of private freights to an orbit received very generous financial donation grant from the Air Force of U.S. Army today. The matter is that the U.S. Air Force is very strongly interested in carrying out start of the satellites of safety into Earth orbit, and for this purpose they need to use the most operational and perfect systems of start and rockets for cargo delivery. Here and Blue Origin which did not so long ago begin work on the new New Glenn rocket received according to the contract with U.S. Army the sum of half a billion dollars for its end.

Should noting that Blue Origin is not the only company with which the U.S. Army actively cooperates - at the moment it is known that the U.S. Army also concluded the contract with Northrup Grumman for the sum of 791 million dollars for development of the system of start of OmegA, with the United Launch Alliance company for the sum of 967 million for end of system of start of Vulcan Centaur and here now it is focused on raketostroitelny success of the Blue Origin company.

Meanwhile is precisely unknown, for what purpose the New Glenn rocket was necessary for U.S. Army, besides delivery of the military satellites of safety to an orbit - but many assume that the Air Force is also interested in that by means of it to take astronauts and military experts into an orbit. Such assumption is not deprived of the basis as Jeff Bezos earlier personally noted that passenger traffic also is in future plan of competence of a new rocket. Especially considering the fact that she uses actually the same capacities, as the previous version - namely the double module of BE-4 engines using liquid gas.

Anyway for now it is necessary to wait for further comments about new development - quite perhaps that soon the company will submit the full plan for improvement of functionality and opportunities of the rocket. Interesting the fact that the first test flight of the New Glenn rocket is planned for 2020, and start starts from the territory of Cape Canaveral in Florida. On materials: www.fainaidea.com
