[Yesterday]ย at its Texas launch facility, Blue Origin performed its most critical test to date. It performed a live separation test of its crew capsule from the rocket booster and everything performed as expected. The crew capsule fired its escape motor at the right time, sending the capsule higher than it ever has gone before. This successful test is a huge milestone for Jeff Bezosโ€™ rocket company, which previously stated that if the test went well it could put the rocket company in position to become operational by the end of the year.
