NS-17 Launches NASA Lunar Landing Technology – LIVE 14:35 – #NS17 

Under a Tipping Point partnership with NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate, the NS-17 flight will further test a suite of lunar landing technologies.  This to reduce risk and increase confidence for successful missions to the Moon. The payload will fly mounted on the exterior of the New Shepard booster.

This New Shepard’s mission is the second time on the exterior of the booster.  Inside the crew capsule are 18 commercial payloads, 11 of which are NASA-supported, and an art installation on the exterior of the capsule.

Unique to NS-17, New Shepard will feature Suborbital Tryptych, which is a series of three portraits by Ghanaian artist Amoako Boafo painted on the top of the crew capsule on the main chute covers.  The portraits capture the artist, his mother, and a friend’s mother. The artwork is part of Uplift Aerospace’s Uplift Art Program, whose purpose is to inspire new ideas and generate dialog by making space accessible and connected to the human experience.

This is the second Blue Origin flight for this experiment.
