Blue Origin still investigating New Shepard failure 6 months later

Blue Origin’s New Shepard has now been grounded for almost six months, and it’s unclear when the suborbital space-tourism vehicle will take to the skies again.

New Shepard suffered an anomaly during its most recent flight, an uncrewed research mission that lifted off on Sept. 12, 2022. New Shepard‘s reusable first-stage booster was lost as a result, though the upper-stage capsule managed to land safely under parachutes.
