Poll: Would You Ride Blue Origin's New Shepard Spacecraft?
By Tariq Malik, Space.com Managing Editor |
Would you ride Blue Origin's private spaceship the New Shepard on a suborbital space trek?
Sign me up! I'd jump at the chance for a space ride with Blue Origin and be the envy of my friends!
Maybe, but I need to learn more about the spacecraft and safety.
Nope, nope, nope. My feet are more comfortable here on Planet Earth.
