First stage of the world's largest rocket New Glenn spotted for the first time


In the workshop of the American company Blue Origin, the first stage of the new heavy launch vehicle New Glenn was first seen. The rocket has three stages, the first of which will land vertically and can be reused.


The new rocket will be able to launch objects weighing up to 45 tons into low-earth orbit, as well as into geo-transfer orbit - loads weighing about 13 tons. The length of the largest rocket to date is 95 meters.

The first stage of the launch vehicle is planned to be equipped with 7 BE-4 engines operating on a methane-hydrogen mixture, also developed in the bowels of Blue Origin, founded in 2000 by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. The first tests of New Glenn are planned for this year.


Blue Origin's signing of the corresponding agreement with NASA gives Bezos the opportunity to participate in tenders held each year by the National Aeronautics Administration for the provision of rocket launch services. In the contract with NASA, the company is listed as a potential provider of services for space missions.

      I didn’t have time to write a comment - someone has already slapped a minus :) I wonder who gets so burned by the fact that Bezos's company is developing its project?

              And how does this contract with SpaceX cancel NASA's Blue Origin contracts? Read carefully what both agreements are about.

                the lunar program is there

                NASA has signed a contract with SpaceX to launch the first two modules of the future Gateway lunar orbital station, SpaceNews reported. The structures will be delivered on the world's largest cargo-lifting rocket, Falcon Heavy. The deal was valued at over $ 330 million.

                  https://www.nasa.gov/feature/nasa-selects-blue-origin-dynetics-spacex-for-artemis-human-landers

                  Quote:

                  The awardees for NASA's Human Landing System contracts are Blue Origin of Kent, Washington, Dynetics (a Leidos company) of Huntsville, Alabama, and SpaceX of Hawthorne, California. These teams offered three distinct lander and mission designs, which will drive a broader range of technology development and, ultimately, more sustainability for lunar surface access.

                  The contract with SpaceX that you indicated specifies the launch of two modules for the orbital lunar station. The Artemis program is not only about it.

                    Himself and shit laughing

                    NASA has announced that three American companies will develop human lander that will land astronauts on the moon starting in 2024 as part of the Artemis program.

                    Pick one.
                    The favorites are Musk.
                    Bezos only has plans at his own expense and promises.

                    Starship is a fully reusable launch and landing system designed for travel to the Moon, Mars and other destinations. The system builds on the company's proven Raptor engines and the flying heritage of the Falcon and Dragon ships.

                      Nowhere is it said that they will choose one. The article says that this issue is approached according to the same principle as in the program for the delivery of cargo and crews to the ISS, when several companies simultaneously developed their vehicles, which are now being used. Besides Dragon-2, for example, there is Boeing's Starliner.

            As usual, you are wrong. No.

            The founder of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, became the richest man in the world on January 7, 2021. Then Musk's fortune grew to $ 188,5 billion. This puts him ahead of Jeff Bezos, who has been the richest man in the world since October 2017. However, the growth of Musk's assets did not stop there.

            It doesn't matter how much the financial bubble is, though.

              No, this is bad news for you:

              In January 2021, he lost the first position in the ranking of the richest people in the world to Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder Elon Musk [7], but on January 12 he took the leading position again... Bezos's fortune is estimated at $ 192 billion.

              According to Forbes Real-Time on January 12, Musk's fortune is $ 176,2 billion, having decreased by $ 13,5 billion in a day. Thus, he is currently in second place. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos again took the first place, his capital is $ 182,1 billion.

              As usual you are wrong

                        It is possible that anything can happen in business, including space.

                        Therefore, launches are the surest test of truth in this industry.

    the first stage of the world's largest rocket

    The largest built, existing or prospective? Even judging by the picture, Saturn 5 is larger (111 m.) If we are talking specifically about carrying capacity, then I’m afraid it will not get into the book of records anyway.

    The new rocket will be able to launch objects weighing up to 45 tons into low-earth orbit, as well as into geo-transfer orbit - loads weighing about 13 tons.

    Energia had 100 tons of LEO, 18 tons of GSO (N had a project for 200 tons). Saturn seems to have written 140 tons.

    In general, she does not pull the best of the best No. So is the new rocket the best of the worst? And I hope that the American military will not use it to militarize space.

                        It turns out that the people on the Zvezda TV channel are inadequate, right?

                        Oh, quite often :) Your idols?

                        Can't the prototype be called a rocket? )))) Who else needs to go to school).

                        No, it's called a "prototype rocket". Specifically to separate the prototype from the finished product.

                        You attribute some academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, who is not even there. You hide behind him. Why are you hiding, tk. himself is not good for anything. You pull out a quote from the entire written text, because do you not like its meaning, or you cannot understand it?

                        A rocket might be a prototype, but it's still a rocket. So that it (product) can be called a rocket. But you cannot understand. Which followed from your answer.

                      An intelligent person always clarifies whether it is a prototype or not. Because the requirements for them are different.

                      What have I deleted?
                      Can't delete here, or don't you know this? Well, you are a liar. I cannot delete my posts. Can you tell me how you can remove it. After all, it turns out that you know how to do it and you probably used it more than once once you say so.

                      The first few minutes can be deleted. But it's too difficult for you to find a "trash can" icon under your comment, isn't it?)

                    And when you come back, you seem to have escaped.

                    And where did I wash what? Keep your fantasies to yourself.
                    I already answered that, after which you ran away, tail between your legs. Yes, and even lied in three boxes.

                    And yes, I cannot delete these comments, but the administration can, so why are you saying that I deleted them? Maybe I deleted your comments too? Again you are not telling the truth. And yes, when I wrote about deleted comments, nothing was deleted. Maybe you asked them to be deleted, because you don't like them and you are not comfortable answering them?
