Reuters is reporting that several people familiar with the Blue Origin program say Jeff Bezos is throwing big money at the program to get his New Glenn heavy-launch vehicle off the ground. Flight tests for this rocket are at least two years off and this puts him between a rock and space. Competitor SpaceX is regularly throwing stuff into orbit with the Falcon 9 rocket and has already launched one Falcon Heavy. As SpaceX gains experience in the commercial market they will be hard to beat once Blue Origin comes to market. However, the bright spot for Bezos is the fact satellite launches are occurring more and more often so he probably hasn't missed his window of opportunity yet. He better keep throwing that money around and meet schedules is all I have to say about that. Blue Origin has privately acknowledged in conversations with French satellite firm Eutelsat SA [ETLXCE.UL] - its first New Glenn customer - that its 2020 time frame is “very aggressive,” a person with direct knowledge of talks between the companies said.
