Blue Origin flies a second time

Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket has flown a second time and made a second landing. This may not seem like such an astounding feat, but it is. Reusable rocket components are something of a holy grail for the commercial space race, and both Blue Origin (Jeff Bezos) and SpaceX (Elon Musk) are trying to be the first to build reusable rockets. Normally is costs tens of millions of dollars to build a rocket and launch it into space. However, it only costs a fraction of that to refuel the rocket. The company that can successfully launch, land then reuse the same rocket again and again stands to reduce their costs substantially. Both companies have been able to launch a rocket and land that rocket back on earth, but Blue Origin is the first to relaunch one of their rockets back into space. Although, Blue Origin was able to relaunch their New Shepard rocket, it did not carry a payload and it is much smaller, and thus easier to maneuver than the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, so I don't think this is settled yet.
