Just love it when I don't catch an error til six months later. :oops:
Hi There!

New Shepard will fly for the ninth time tomorrow, July 18, 2018. We’ll be doing a high altitude escape motor test – pushing the rocket to its limits.

Current launch target is 9:00 am CT / 14:00 UTC, you can monitor twitter for launch updates. The live webcast will be available on BlueOrigin.com and begins at T-20 minutes prior to launch.

We also have payloads on board, click here to learn more about the Mission 9 manifest.

Excited to see you all on launch day.
