“The hush-hush space effort funded by founder Jeff Bezos, Blue Origin, executed a test launch from its West Texas spaceport today, air traffic controllers confirmed. Based on the Federal Aviation Administration documents governing the test, it was a relatively low-altitude blastoff – but itcomes at the beginning of a launch schedule thatcould lead to tourist rides to the edge of outer space by 2010.”
