The flight will be Mission 9 for the company, and will feature a "high altitude escape motor test" which the company says will "push the rocket to its limits".
After launch, the capsule separated from the rocket just like it should, and then its emergency motor ignited - just as it's supposed to during an emergency situation.
The capsule parachuted down to the desert floor after reaching roughly 7,000 feet of altitude. Such systems are created to fire quickly and separate the crew capsule from the booster during an emergency. The test is scheduled to begin at 10 am EDT (14:00 UTC) at the company's West Texas launch site.
The test campaign began in 2015, and despite the loss of the first booster, the second flight in November 2015 kick-started a successful run of test flights. The company has not said what the price of the tickets would be.
Blue Origin didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

"That means understanding everything that's necessary for human spaceflight, including the escape system".
A dummy the company calls "Mannequin Skywalker" was onboard to give the company data on what the flight would be like for real passengers. "At Blue Origin, we're all about safety", she said.

Along with the suborbital New Shepard rockets and spacecraft, Blue Origin also is developing a powerful new engine, the BE-4, to help boost satellites into orbit using much larger New Glenn rockets.
