At 1135 GMT the Blue Origin conducted another unmanned suborbital launch of its New Shepard launch vehicle/carrier spacecraft (Mark II) with an unofficial altitude achieved of 105.6 km above the Van Horn launch site in Texas. The launch is counted by Seradata as a spaceflight as it breaches the Karman line of 100 km.  The payload consisted of 38 experimental payloads for NASA, Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Media Lab, Arizona State University and from a high school in Huntsville, Alabama.  The return capsule landed safely by parachute ten minutes after launch.  The launch vehicle/spacecraft combination is expected to make human carrying flights later this year.
