That's obviously the test stand that the fairing and adapter stack were mounted on for the testing up at Armstrong.

The main element of the Blue Origin delivery is off the barge. Big fairing transport.

New Glenn fairing halves back from vacuum testing 👀

Given that the first flight-ready BE-4s are in the process of delivery to ULA to be used in the first Vulcan launch after delays, Blue Origin most likely begun fabricating components for the first New Glenn rocket this year, letting it be known that a firm decision on which quarter of 2023 the New Glenn rocket will be launched depends on fabricating additional flight-optimized BE-4 engines.

This isn't true though, only 1 is. The other is on its way back for more testing. There are also 2 other engines that need even more extensive testing as well for vulcan. We hope they all pass, but thats not guaranteed.

Flight Engine 1 is confirmed back at Corn Ranch in Texas and undergoing its ATP again. It is uncertain how long it has been back there, but the satellite imagery posted a couple weeks ago by Harry Stranger suggests that it may have already undergone a test firing.

Blue Origin Veterans Day video, but behind Carmen L. De Leon-Acosta is New Glenn hardware:



She largely is shown speaking in an office and outside the window behind her can be glimpsed a rig with part of a forward module interstage.

But later she is shown walking under and by an aft module, one in vertical build, another horizontal. Lots of interesting things to see.

Is that Dream Chaser inside New Glenn fairing?

It appears to be the cargo version, but the really interesting question is how they will fly the manned version of Dream Chaser? This is because the pad is human rated.

Also a manned version cannot go in a fairing. That would make it impossible to have a launch escape system. Fairing separation would waste precious seconds the crew wouldn't have.

It's possible to make the fairing part of the LAS, as with Orion and Soyuz. It would not be this fairing, however.

Not sure what you mean by Orion as its sits exposed on top of SLS.
Crew DC is designed to sit exposed on top of LV, see the photos online associated with it.

Cargo DC is LV agnostic while crew version and LV are married at hip when comes to LAS. My pick would be ULA Vulcan because of their launch history, would also be easier sell to NASA.

The Orion CM (i.e., capsule) does not sit exposed. It is hidden inside the LAS, which acts as a fairing and which is jettisoned like a fairing.

Yes, most(?) crewed spacecraft sit "naked" atop the LV. I was just pointing out that this is not universal.

I stand corrected, never noticed LAS fairing which encloses capsule. NB this fairing and capsule stay attach during abort, then separate after abort engines have burnt out.
