Blue Origin is test-launching its New Sheppard rocket on Wednesday

That's one small step for man, one giant leap into the future of commercial space flight.

The fifteenth test launch of New Sheppard is set to take place on the morning of April 14 and you can watch the entire thing live on Blue Origin’s YouTube channel.

Blue Origin is a private space flight company started by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos that is hoping to bring orbital travel to the commercial space by making it cheaper and more reliable through the use of reusable vehicles.



This upcoming test will begin and end with Blue Origin personnel conducting operational exercises but the crew will not yet be in the craft when it launches. This is the 14 test Blue Origin has conducted and is another step towards commercial space flight.

Watch the whole event live on April 14 10:15.
