John Batchelor and I welcomed back Dr Jeff Foust to update us on the recent Blue Origin New Shepard suborbital vehicle test flight. In addition, we talked about their engine development program on the BE3 rocket motor and then in partnership with ULA, the BE4 rocket motor. Jeff described the New Shepard test flight their attempt at recovering the booster stage which will eventually be reusable, plus their rocket motor development program and both their suborbital and orbital plans.

We welcomed back Michael Listner to discuss recent issues arising with the competition of SpaceX and Blue Origin (Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk) regarding reusability, barge landings in the water, patents, RD180 engine development and more. As you will hear, Blue Origin was awarded a patent on a barge landing in water which SpaceX is protesting.  Also, Blue Origin entered into an agreement with ULA, Boeing & Lockheed for a replacement engine for the RD180 based upon the Blue BE4 engine that has been in development for a few years.  Michael discusses these issues with us on this edition of Hotel Mars.
