Jeff Bezos Spacecraft

Jeff Bezos Spacecraft, This afternoon, the Wall Street Journal taught government officials that an unmanned rocket funded by billionaire Jeff Bezos Amazon.com crashed during a test flight last week. The Journal could not obtain private home Bezos notoriously secret signature blue space to comment on the accident.
Blue Origin representative also declined to give details about the incident to Forbes magazine. Fortunately, some locals living near the facilities of space remote west Texas were next.
A handful of residents of Van Horn, Texas saw firsthand the shock and described the incident as similar to the famous Challenger disaster of 1986.
“Rumor has it that just exploded, but we have nothing official,” a high Culberson County, Texas official said Forbes. “Installing the Blue Origin is remote – it is 30 miles or 4th of Van Horn.”
“People in the people saw and reported it and posted it on Facebook,” said the official, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of reprisals. “One of them said it was like the Challenger: A blast and then a stream of smoke into the sky. It tells us nothing officially. The private space industry is so competitive and secret.”
One local Van Horn has updated their Facebook status to say. “I just saw a plane in the sky explode and burn down to the [Highway] 54″
Larry Simpson, editor of the local newspaper the Advocate Van Horn knew that the test flight was ready to take its place, but not for Blue Origin said – in fact, never say anything, he said. He learned through the FAA, which issued alerts of special use for this type of testing, warning others to stay out of the airspace concerned.
“Something is not working,” said Simpson. “It was pretty well shot, and suddenly blown to pieces. I do not know if [Blue Origin] blew it up themselves because they lost contact, or if they flew on there own.”
The local Fire Department was called to the base of Blue Origin, as a result of the accident, but no one to talk about the incident – and for good reason. “People who go are forced to sign a nondisclosure agreement,” said Simpson.
Bezos has been funneling money to Blue Origin for years in an attempt to build a successful vertical takeoff, vertical landing rockets. Simpson reminded the meeting that the technology magnate six years ago at the launch of the company, when Van Horn Advocate has a unique history. “I was hoping it had opened a bit when he began to receive some federal funds,” said Simpson. “But there was nothing.”
