by Jono Simrin
It was the third completed mission for this particular rocket booster.
On Saturday, Blue Origin launched its New Shepard rocket to the edge of space. From there, it began descending back to Earth and successfully stuck the landing. The highest point it reached was 339,178 feet (103 km).
It was the third time the rocket hardware had been used by Blue Origin, the private space company founded by Amazon's Jeff Bezos. According to Wired, the rocket restarted its engine to land at 3,600 feet (1.1 km), a more daring feat compared with previous launches.
