Boostback burn after flip manouver

NewHepard has an orbiting capsule that offers long duration micro-gravity experience and the fascinating view of HOM. The capsule orbits HOM as long as the air and power supply can last.

NewHepard Capsule re-entry

The first stage carries the capsule and second stage to orbit while the second stage is used for flip manouver and boostback burn in orbit for capsule re-entry. The capsule uses parachute to decelerate for landing.

This is first generation of NewHepard and engineers at AX-JPL is working on reusable NewHepard boosters and powered landing.
