eight seven six five four command engine start two one [Music] has cleared the tower she is on her space with the second human space flight crew what a launch we are on our way to mexico the first milestone here on its flight to space
00:45
[Music] you can follow along obviously with the altimeter at the base of the screen as well as the speedometer they are gaining speed on their climb to space we have confirmed max q this is when the mat the the aerodynamic stresses on the vehicle were at their maximum
01:14
[Music] so thank you again everybody for joining us live for new shepard's second human flight with audrey powers william shatner our customers glenda reese and chris bosshausen on board they are well on their way to space so far a nominal flight a clean burn on our blue engine three [Music]
02:34
you're looking at a live shot of blue origin it's it's it's second launch here taking william shatner and three other individuals to space uh let's get the update with bloomberg's ed ludlow joining us hey ed what are we looking at right now yeah so they're traveling to a distance of 62 miles above the earth that's their apogee their highest point and any moment now the capsule that sits on top of the booster will separate off and carry on on the rest of that journey that happens at around 47 miles above the earth you can see that they're traveling at a speed of around 1600 miles an hour under
03:06
intense g-force and very soon after that separation that's when the crew will be instructed to unbuckle and harness from their seats for literally what is just a couple of minutes just a few minutes of weightlessness and as we know from the previous mission in july with jeff bezos his brother wally funk and oliver damon they'll have the opportunity to do some assault high-five each other chuck a ping-pong ping-pong ball around whatever it is that one wants to do in space when one is up there for a couple of minutes but it's very short and the critical
03:37
safety element is that when the control room signals in and crew member seven who's their support auxiliary crew member on the ground chimes in that they have to get back into their seats then they do because 62 miles above the earth is technically space right it's above the common line but it's still within earth's gravitational pull and the capture will start to descend back down to earth and then start to pick up its speed and even greater force than it did on the way up so they'll be under immense stress and it's important they're back in their seats at that point ed you talk about them being under
04:08
immense stress william shatner is in his 90s if he can tolerate this i'm assuming that most people can tolerate this this isn't um this isn't completely um sort of debilitating stress that they're coming under did you say 3g that that's quite a lot three times earth gravitational force but nevertheless manageable and i'm wondering what that tells us about the kind of the available pool of people that could potentially go up uh and and replicate what they're doing today this is the product guy this is what
04:38
blue origin designed this to be that they want anyone to be able to fly with minimal training in the up to that 62 miles apogee you know the crew arrives about three days before launch the training largely involves the basics right getting in and out the seat doing the harness how to respond in the event of an emergency that said in an emergency the system is largely autonomous right on the way up for example during launch it's designed to jettison the capsule to a safe distance from the booster one of the
05:09
requirements is that any crew member can climb seven flights of stairs in under 90 seconds i'm not entirely sure that i can climb seven flights of stairs in under 90 seconds and you know but that was the minimum standard in order to be able to go up so we would imagine that william shatner was able to pass that in terms of the demand we simply just don't know we know from spacex for example that they are supply constrained they basically said after the mission in florida which was a three-day mission at a much higher altitude that they hoped
05:40
to potentially do four to six flights over the next 12 to 18 months but that they had a massive backlog of willing paying customers we haven't had the same signals from blue origin um so we just don't know but remember on board this capsule only two of the crew are paying customers the other two are being subsidized or paid for by blue origin and bezos and just to recap here you're looking at a live shot of blue origin the ns18 four people on board one including william shatner uh above space at this moment all right ed just refresh again what are we looking at
06:11
so on the left-hand side of your screen you have the booster coming back down to earth you know we're we're approaching you know several minutes into the mission at around the seven minute 30 mark you'll see the booster land right at the moment it's using aerodynamics you can see those aft fins on the bottom of your screen that basically position the rocket to slow it down using earth's atmosphere the atmospheric resistance and when it reaches a few thousand feet above the earth it will deploy those engines you'll see that any moment now
06:42
with the engines reignite with a quick burst to slow it down the clamp feet will then deploy on the bottom of the booster and it will land on the landing pad which i think just came into vision just now let's listen in for a quick second there you have it like cgi landing back in van horn texas on the landing pad
