DylanSemrau posted a topic in Add-on DevelopmentPlease note that most of the parts shown here are being revamped and do not actually represent what will be in the release. This mod aims to add the mighty New Glenn (and later New Shepard) rocket into Kerbal Space Program! I will be going off of the 2018 design of New Glenn. See the updated animation here. I'm not yet done and hope to share my progress as I go. Check out the roadmap below to see my progress and future plans for the mod. --------------- Imgur Album If you have any suggestions for parts that I should include I would love to hear it!

Is the New Glenn even economically viable? I know Jeff Bezos seems to think so- the issue being that reusable payload to LEO is 50 mT- far larger than anything launching today, even when considering GTO payload (~16mT) It was honestly pretty surprising to me. I guess it makes some sense, avoiding competition with ULA- but avoiding competition is pointless if there is no market. Not to mention there is no 2nd stage reuse planned.
This thread is for the discussion of Blue Origin's proposed "New Glenn" rocket, which is a beast of a heavy lift vehicle (though not as heavy as some historical or proposed lifters, it still beats everything currently in use...) and would rely on first-stage reusability, much like the Falcon 9/Heavy rockets of SpaceX. It will come in both a 2 and 3-stage version, with the 3-stage version having higher payload . Feel free to discuss here. More detail and maybe some pics of the design art!) probably coming soon.
