The veil has been lifted on the secretive Blue Origin private space program created by Jeff Bezos (of Amazon.com fame–and fortune). Their website now boasts photos and video of their recent first test flight.
Oh, and the slogan means, more or less, “Bit by bit–ferociously!”
And if you happen to be a rocket scientist–they’re hiring!
Apparently this post is at or near the top of Google results when you search for “Gradatim Ferociter,” which is doing wonderful things for my hit counter.
So…while you’re here, check the rest of Hassenpfeffer. Not to mention my books. Like adventurous science fiction of the space opera variety? Check out my science fiction novel Lost in Translation or any of my other books–you can find them in the sidebar at left or by visiting my main site, edwardwillett.com.
And come back often. I don’t bite. Sometimes I’m even amusing (so I’ve been told). And I post a fresh science column every week both here on the blog, and here (they’re also archived here). You might like those, too!
