Blue Origin, founded by Jeff Bezos, is to resume flights to space this Sunday after almost two years since the last flight failed back in 2022, according to Reuters.

The NS-25 mission will launch from West Texas at 0830 CT (1330 GMT), the company announced on Tuesday.

The New Shepard rocket, grounded since a failed uncrewed mission in September 2022, has undergone 21 corrective actions, including an engine redesign. The upcoming NS-25 mission will carry six crew members, including former Air Force Captain Ed Dwight, the first Black astronaut candidate in the US.
