Bezos rocket aims for Mars

Launch date is scheduled for August 2024. It will be the first time that Blue Origin’s New Glenn rocket has been used but as the contract only worth $79 million, NASA is prepared to take the risk. 

The mission is called ESCAPADE (Escape and Plasma Acceleration and Dynamics Explorers).

The satellites weigh about half a ton each. New Glenn, which is  320 feet high with a 23-foot diameter  can lift a payload of 45 metric tons. Its first launch was planned four years ago.
