Blue Origin Just Teased A Photo Of Its Big Arse Rocket's Engine
Besides discussing the New Glenn rocket, a new BE-4 engine, and hinting at his goals for future space travel, Bezos, also used his keynote to explain how, and why, he progressed from running arguably the most successful retail business in the world, Amazon, to disrupting the launch and satellite industry with Blue Origin.
Blue Origin is now focusing on its first launch, scheduled for 2020, and its first customer payload for France's satellite operator Eutelsat, currently scheduled for 2021 or 2022.
Blue Origin's New Glenn rocket will launch from Cape Canaveral's launch complex 36. "The BE-4 engine is designed for a 100-flight lifetime", he said.
The deal has come up as the first big commercial contract for Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' aerospace firm Blue Origin and its ambitious lunar rocket mission.
Here is how Blue Origindescribes BE-4 on their website. People who would stay on the moon will likely need important supplies such as food and medicines shipped from Earth just as how astronauts who are now working at the International Space Station rely on cargoes to get the things they need from home. From the profits coming in from the sale of these engines, Blue Origin will start plans for its Vulcan rocket. "This can only be good news for the profitability and sustainability of our industry".
Meant to simulate the path of an actual mission, the animation showed the New Glenn, powered by seven of the company's BE-4 engines, launch from Cape Canaveral in Florida and separate, with the first stage heading back to Earth while the second stage carries a satellite into orbit. This lowers the price of launches, Bezos saidaccording to Satellite Today.

The third stage may employ a BE-3 engine though. The advantage is that it cuts the cost of space travel. Seeing how ULA has been the primary launch provider for the military over the past decade, the company had to make moves to get rid of the RD-180. Bezos's rocket company just released a video showing how the rocket will launch and land.
In a statement Tuesday, Eutelsat said the contract with Blue Origin "reflects Eutelsat's longstanding strategy to source launch services from multiple agencies in order to secure access to space". The satellite manufacturer plans to launch a constellation of communication satellites to provide internet access across the globe. He also said that the rocket's BE-4 engines are created to fly as many as 100 times.
