San Francisco – Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’s aerospace company Blue Origin planned to conduct an astronaut rehearsal during the 15th launch of its New Shepard rocket, dubbed NS-15. The Launch Site One in West Texas is the location. During the mission, astronaut operational exercises will be held to prepare for human space flight. The astronauts will climb the launch tower, get into their seats, buckle their harnesses, and conduct a communications check from their seat with CAPCOM, the Capsule Communicator. The tower operations team will prepare the capsule cabin for launch and then briefly close the capsule hatch. The astronauts will then exit the capsule prior to launch, Blue Origin said, adding that the launch window for the flight. Post-landing, the astronauts will get inside the capsule to rehearse hatch opening, and exiting the capsule at the landing site. However, it is still not clear when Blue Origin will launch the first commercial flights.
