Jeff Bezos’ space company Blue origin today completed its first launch mission in 2020, launching a new Shepard suborbital rocket from a test facility in West Texas. < / P > < p > today’s launch includes testing of NASA’s active landing sensor system, which will be used to build an autonomous, accurate and flexible landing system for future lunar landers. < / P > < p > NASA’s landing system test is also the first for blue origin – it’s the first time blue origin has tested its flight payload outside the new Shepard. So far, all of the new Shepard’s payloads have been placed in the space capsule on top of the booster, but external testing is necessary to help measure and test the instruments that will be used to provide repeatable precision landing capabilities for future spacecraft. < / P > < p > although NASA has been able to land on the surface of the moon before, it is seeking to upgrade its technology for landing, so as to be able to handle this challenging task in a fully automated way and land on very specific targets on the surface of the moon with higher accuracy – and provide repetitive and reliable capabilities for spacecraft, because NASA’s & quot; Artemis & quot; The goal of a new generation of lunar missions is to build a longer-term human research presence on our large natural satellites. < / P > < p > there are also some experiments carried on the capsule, first of all, the capsule returns to earth by parachute assisted soft landing, and also includes a new heat shield device used on the rocket as part of the future new Glenn flight test. &The next generation spacecraft of blue origin will be able to handle orbital payload launch and enhance suborbital capability.
