SPACEX competitor will deliver cargo through space instead of an airplane

According to the Director of National Security Programs Blue Origin Thomas Martin, currently the Company is conducting relevant negotiations with the United States Transport Command.

Spacenews reminds that Blue Origin can become the second after Spacex company, which in the interests of the Pentagon will develop systems for the delivery of goods on the planet via space.
