First Launch for Blue Origin

Blue Origin, the secretive space-tourism company founded by Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com, has carried out its first test launch. No information has been released about the rocket-powered test craft, except that it was a short suborbital flight, lasting under a minute and not exceeding two kilometers in altitude. No other information has come out of the launch site in western Texas or the company's Seattle HQ.
