We’re still targeting tomorrow, December 10th at 8:30 am CST / 14:30 UTC for #NS12. Current weather conditions aren’t as favorable as we’d like, but we’re continuing to keep an eye on the forecast. Stay tuned here for launch updates.

Blue Origin:
Blue Origin’s next New Shepard mission (NS-12) is currently targeting liftoff tomorrow, December 10th at 8:30 am CST / 14:30 UCT. Current weather conditions aren’t as favorable as we’d like, but we’re continuing to keep an eye on the forecast.

As we move towards verifying New Shepard for human spaceflight we are continuing to mature the safety and reliability of the vehicle.

It’s the 6th flight for this particular New Shepard vehicle, marking the first time a Blue Origin booster has made this many consecutive flights (the previous booster flew five times consecutively) - all with minimal refurbishment between flights. This particular rocket has been an operational payload vehicle for several flights, meaning there are no more updates to the system.

This will also be the 9th commercial payload mission for New Shepard, and we are proud to be flying our 100th customer on board.

Also on the vehicle are thousands of postcards from students around the world for our nonprofit Club for the Future. The Club's mission is to inspire future generations to pursue careers in STEM and help visualize the future of life in space.

You can watch the launch live at BlueOrigin.com – the pre-show begins T-30 where Blue will provide more mission details and updates.

What about this flight is different that is verifying NS for carrying passengers?  Is it just the number of flights or something else?

Thanks, and have a good one,

Small copy edit:

"Waste stimulants will be used for this suborbital flight."

That should be 'simulants', correct?

The bad side of me just expects it be Ex-lax.

Launch time has been updated to 11:00 am according to the web site.

Actually, I see the webcast starting at 10:00 CST so launch should be at 10:30 AM CST, 11:30 EST, 8:30 AM PST,  9:30 AM MST.

Edit: Oops. Thanks Steven

What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?
