A critical test was conducted and succeeded on several levels for Blue Origin at their Texas facility.

Once the booster separated, the capsule's escape motor fired, lifting the spacecraft to an altitude of 389,846 feet or 119 kilometres.

The booster and capsule - both repeat fliers - landed successfully.

Wednesday's flight will be the ninth by a New Shepard rocket, and the third using Blue Origin's most recent model of the single-stage vehicle, which debuted in December and made its second launch and landing in April. Although it did not have any flight passengers yet, two of the flights have included "Mannequin Skywalker", its test dummy.

According to a representative of Blue Origin, the flight will take place in a capsule on Board which will be another 5 people. Bezos, its founder, heads up Amazon.

An employee at Blue Origin told Reuters the ticket prices will begin between $200,000 and $300,000.

Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic also plans to start flying paying customers to space on suborbital flights. This is high enough for the people to experience a few moments of weightlessness.

One employee said that within weeks, Blue Origin will do the first test in space of its pod escape system, which will propel the flight crew to safety if the booster explodes.

Additionally, they will be able to see the curvature of the earth at an altitude of 93,573 meters, before the pressurized pod returns to the planet with the help of parachutes. This time, the company continued work toward increasing the robustness of WIFI in space with an antenna created to withstand the rigors of a rocket demonstration. Tickets will be available by next year. "We have not set ticket pricing and have had no serious discussions inside of Blue on the topic", the firm said. The company has not said what the price of the tickets would be. "We have a flight test schedule and schedules of those types always have uncertainties and contingencies".
