Blue Origin launch today.

Supposedly 10:45 EST, but it doesn’t look like it’s on time?

Ach, well, it’s space stuff. Anyway, this is the New Shepard rocket, which will eventually be for tourism purposes. Jeff Bezos isn’t quite ready yet to let Elon Musk be the only guy out there with a private manned space program. And, as always, I applaud this battle of egos, and encourage both of them to keep it up.

Heck, get some more billionaires in on this. You know what would REALLY demonstrate your personal glory, ladies and gentlemen of the hyper-rich? Asteroid mining. Think about it.
