Rocket lands standing up - level 1
Blue Origin is a company. It makes rockets. These rockets can carry cargo and people into space.
Blue Origin tests a rocket. It takes off in Texas. It flies to 100 kilometres above the ground. Then, it comes back. It lands standing up eight minutes later.
At 100 kilometres above the ground, the atmosphere ends and space starts. Gravity does not work there.
Difficult words: cargo (things), take off (to get into the air), land (to get back to the ground), gravity (the force which pulls you towards the ground).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
