Blue Origin has launched a series of portrait paintings and a moon-landing navigation experiment for NASA into space.
Thursday’s brief flight from West Texas comes a month after Blue Origin sent founder Jeff Bezos on the company’s first passenger flight.
The paintings by a Ghana artist adorned the three main parachute panels on the outside of the capsule.
One was a self-portrait. The others were portraits of the artist’s mother as well as a friend’s mother.
It was the 17th trip of a New Shepard rocket to space.
Both the booster and capsule landed successfully.
