Blue Origin, space company owned by billionaire Jeff Bezos, did a very impressive job on its first test launch from space to Earth. The rocket called New Shepard smoothly land vertically on the ground after returning from space.

According to Yahoo News, the NASA landing test is one of the very firsts of Blue Origin when it comes to test flying a payload on the outside of the rocket.

It also tests the agency's active landing sensor system, which makes the rocket land more precisely and safer for the space vehicle.

Here's the full video of the said New Shepard launch via Blue Origin's official Youtube page:

One of the greatest things that viewers observed on the video is how the space rocket accurately and smoothly landed on the ground, given the pressure of launching from space.

"We're taking the best of Nasa sensor developments across the agency, one or two commercial offerings, putting them on the propulsion module (rocket) of New Shepard," said Stefan Bieniawski, senior engineer at Blue Origin.

Jeff Bezos, owner of Blue Origin, introduces a new lunar landing module called Blue Moon during an event at the Washington Convention Center, May 9, 2019 in Washington, DC. Bezos said the module will be used to land humans the moon once again.

It is not the first time that NASA launched a mission to fly to the Moon. The remarkable Apollo 11 was the very first one to do the mission.

However, on the next NASA Artemis mission, the agency wants to establish a more permanent human research presence on our large natural satellite.

This was the reason why the agency with the help of Blue Origin, aims to have a more precise landing technology with the space rockets, to avoid dangerous stunts, during and after the launch.
