"Russia’s space agency isn’t the only team having some trouble these days -- just ask Amazon CEO Jeffrey P. Bezos about the difficulties of getting into space. An unmanned spacecraft financed by Bezos’ spaceflight company Blue Origin crashed last week during a test flight in Texas, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. The rocket experienced problems shortly after reaching an altitude of 45,000 feet and a speed of 1.2 times the speed of sound." (09/05/11)
