A larger variant of the lander, now in development , can land an ascent vehicle which will allow the company to send humans to the moon and bring them back by 2024. Bezos will retain control of Blue Origin after his divorce this year. That spacecraft is created to take space tourists on short hops into space, where passengers will experience just a few minutes of weightlessness before New Shepard's passenger capsule returns to Earth's surface.
Lead author Sterling Nesbitt, now a vertebrate paleontologist at Virginia Tech, began working on the find when he was 16 years old. Still, standing around 3 ft (0.9 m) tall at the hip and roughly 9 ft (2.8 m) from nose to tail, you'd still probably want to keep your distance.
The lender, referred to as "Beresheet" (to start with), will launch at eight:45 p.m. EST (0145 GMT, Feb. 22) from Cape Canaveral Air Power Station in Florida.

We are far south enough in the Northern Hemisphere, though, to where we may see up to 10 meteors per hour. While those in the Southern Hemisphere can look forward to seeing as many as 40 meteors per hour. The American Meteor Society recommended to those interested to witness this show , get away from the city lights and drive to a "darker" place.

And while the researchers admit that black holes are some of the most extreme objects in the universe , this one is different. Where jets are usually thought to shoot straight out from the poles of black holes, these jets were shooting out in different directions at different times.
SpaceX had planned to perform an in-flight abort test using the Crew Dragon spacecraft destroyed in the anomaly as soon as June, followed by a crewed test flight no earlier than July. "This is why we test", Jim Bridenstine, NASA Administrator, said at the time in a statement. As to the schedule of NASA's Commercial Crew Program, which plans to return astronauts to space from the American soil for the first time since 2011, SpaceX is not yet sure where it stands in the timeline.
