New Shepard is the first spaceship, with the largest windows, that flew into space. Previously, Yahoo News reported that New Shepard was tested by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
The spacecraft can land vertically in the ground after returning from space. This new ability can help it land even in small areas.
It carries software, a computer, and sensors, specifically designed to help space vehicles perform precision landings on other heavenly bodies.
New Shepard's interior design
On the other hand, the capsule itself is designed to accommodate six passengers, who will float for 10 minutes in zero gravity. The rocket will take them to outer space, allowing them to see Earth's surface, 340,000 feet above.

The passengers can also use the cameras inside the spaceship so that they can share their experience once they return to Earth. It also has seats, which are just like those in helicopters.
The spacecraft with the biggest windows
The crew capsule features large windows, measuring 3.6 feet tall and 2.4 feet wide, which are considered the most massive windows ever flown into space.
"These are the largest windows to every be flown in space. In fact, over a third of the capsule is windows. Six seats, six windows. Everyone gets a window seat," said Ariane Cornell, Blue Origin's director of astronaut and orbital sales, according to the Daily Mail UK.
The interior design also gives the passengers a more comfortable feeling since it has handles, which they hold on to while they float in zero gravity.
Blue Origin hasn't released any confirmation yet regarding the price and date of the vacations to space. On the other hand, Jeff Bezos gave a tip to the interested passengers.
He said that they should go to the bathroom first since the entire trip, from boarding until they're back on the planet, will take around 40 to 41 minutes.
