    I can hear Jeff Bezos laughing in triumph from here.

    This is so exciting - perhaps one day we will be able to put a monkey in orbit!

    Is it just me, or did the countdown guy speed up in the middle?

    I watched the horizontal view from under the aircraft. What no curved horizon?

    I want one. I could blow off some barn doors with one of those things :)

    Their website and job posting aren't giving away much. They claim they want someone who knows cryogenic propellants (LOX/H) and RP-1 (kerosene) and peroxide. Don't tell me they're doing a QUAD propellant rocket engine!

      My understanding is they were using Peroxide or Peroxide/RP-1 now because it's easy and gives them reasonable engines so they can work on flight control etc., but want to migrate to LOX/? for better performance eventually.

    Armadillo's Pixel was more impressive, and has a better flight record. Monoprop is for pussies.
