SpaceX And Blue Origin To Launch Rockets Within Minutes Of Each Other Tuesday Morning

Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Boeing and the French may all fly to space today

SpaceX and Blue Origin are headlining a busy day of rocket launches on Tuesday morning, planning to send rockets into space within minutes of each other.

Separately, SpaceX's launch of a much-delayed navigation satellite for the U.S. military was halted on Tuesday, postponing for at least a day the space transportation company's first designated national security mission for the United States. Blue Origin will fly the New Shepard spacecraft out of the company's launch facility in Van Horn, Texas. "Vehicle and payload remain healthy; next launch attempt is tomorrow at 9:07 EST, 14:07 UTC".

In 2017, the Hawthorne, California-based company launched payloads for the Department of Defense that were not designated as a National Security Space missions. As of publication, three of the four rocket launches are canceled. However, a ground infrastructure issue resulted in that mission being delayed as well. Elon Musk's company has Space X launch; the Blue origin is the rocket of Jeff Bezos's company, France's Arianespace and United Launch Alliance which is a joint effort of Boeing Co. and Lockheed Martin Crop.

Vice President Mike Pence was on hand a the nearby Kennedy Space Center to take in the launch and reassured space workers he understood the importance of making sure all systems are "go" before committing a half-billion-dollar satellite to flight.
