Blue Origin plans to boost spaceflight launches in 2022: report

Blue Origin wants to double the number of people it flew to space in its first year of operations, a plan that can be accomplished “easily” by bringing in a second rocket, a media report indicates.

So far, the space tourism company has flown 14 people to space across three flights in July, October and December. To meet the new flight rate, SpaceNews suggests, Blue Origin will need to bring on board another New Shepard vehicle and decrease the turnaround time between flights.
