亚马逊CEO杰夫·贝佐斯Blue Origin太空冒险公司正在与空军Research Laboratory在加州爱德华兹空军基地为蓝源BE-7火箭发动机开发一个新的测试设施。

  • 以氢为燃料的BE-7注定要为蓝色起源号提供动力蓝月亮登月器, which NASA is considering for crewed missions to the moon as early as 2024. Last month, the two partners signed a 15-year agreement that calls for Blue Origin to fund capital improvements at AFRL’s rocket lab at Edwards. The Air Force base has a storied history as the place where flight tests andengine testingset the stage for the Space Race and thespace shuttle era.
  • Blue Origin, which is headquartered in Kent, Wash., will add liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen propellant capabilities and make other facility upgrades at the California site. “Repurposing the infrastructure at the 1-42 test site enables us to accelerate development of the BE-7 engine for our Blue Moon lunar lander,” Eric Blumer, senior director for the BE-7 engine program,said Monday in a news release. Blue Origin最近成立了一个rocket engine development office in Los Angeles,和thecompany’s careers website列出了10份洛杉矶的工作。
  • The industry team behind the Blue Moon landing system — whichincludes Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Draper as well as Blue Origin— is waiting to hear from NASA whether it will be selected for a development contract. That development work could lead to the system being used for NASA’s Artemis moon program, but there are other companies in the commercial lunar lander competition — including波音公司,一个team led by Dynetics and Sierra Nevada Corp.,和可能是SpaceXas well.
