VAN HORN, Texas (Nexstar) – Blue Origin is set to launch a capsule from its West Texas location on Wednesday.
The NS-15 mission will serve as a rehearsal for future customer flights, according to the company.
During the mission, personnel will stand in as astronauts, conduct pre-launch checks and then exit the vessel, a release reads. The pre-flight rehearsals are now complete and we are awaiting launch.
Once the capsule has launched and landed, personnel will return and rehearse hatch opening and exiting, the company says.
