Submission + - Blue Origin Rocket Test Flight Fails->

astroengine writes: "An experimental suborbital space vehicle developed by Blue Origin, a space startup founded by Amazon.com chief Jeff Bezos, was lost during a test flight last week. During the secretive flight, the vehicle reached an altitude of 45,000 feet and attained a velocity of Mach 1.2. Soon after, things went horribly wrong. "A flight instability drove an angle of attack that triggered our range safety system to terminate thrust on the vehicle," said an upbeat Bezos in Friday's statement."
