- Made it to 50% cash, thanks to an over $2 pop in SPCE during AH's trading. Probably shoot to $40 tomorrow now that I sold some. (still holding half)

Jeff Bezosí Blue Origin to livestream rocket launch in West Texas on Thursday [The Dallas Morning News]

Amazon founder Jeff Bezosí rocket company Blue Origin is targeting Thursday morning to launch its next New Shepard mission, NS-14, from its site in West Texas.
The private aerospace companyís launch site is near the remote town of Van Horn, but viewers can watch the launch stream on Blue Originís YouTube channel and its website at 9:15 a.m. CT. Liftoff is scheduled for 9:45 a.m.
The goal of the launch is to test several newly-installed technologies designed to improve the astronautís experience onboard the New Shepard rocket, according to Blue Origin. The rocketís crew capsule will be outfitted with updated acoustics and temperature regulation as well as communication and safety alert systems, which will be tested during flight.
The NS-14 mission will also take 50,000 postcards written by students around the world into space with it. New Shepard flew its ninth commercial payload mission in mid-December. It also carried postcards on that launch.
The rocket stands 60 feet tall and accommodates up to six people in its crew capsule. Named after the first American to go to space, Alan Shepard, the New Shepard is intended to become a reusable space vehicle capable of taking humans into suborbital space more affordably and safely.
Blue Origin has yet to put an actual human in its rockets during testing in West Texas. This mission will include a life-sized human dummy in the crew capsule cleverly named Mannequin Skywalker. The new technologies aimed at enhancing astronautsí experience in transit could be a hint that the company is getting closer to manned space flight.
Itís the only other private company to produce reusable rockets besides Elon Muskís SpaceX, which has been testing its own vehicles in South Texas. Richard Bransonís Virgin Galactic is testing space planes from its base in New Mexico with a goal of taking paying customers to the edge of space.
