Hey guys, we know that SpaceX is doing some pretty big things right now, like trying to shuttle passengers around the moon, and sending deadly pathogens into space, but Blue Origin is still cool, OK? As it reminded us this week, the company has built some pretty big engines for its upcoming New Glenn rocket, which will be one of the largest in the world once it’s completed.

At long last, Blue Origin has unveiled a minute-and-a-half-long animation debuting this mysterious rocket, which is definitely not in any way an attempt to show that SpaceX isn’t the only player in the race. It’s definitely just a coincidence that Blue Origin waited until SpaceX’s shining moment to show us their shiny new rocket.
The video simply depicts the New Glenn launching and landing on a barge, which, again, bears no relation to the similar videos of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 doing the same thing. The important thing here is that the New Glenn will be bigger, you see? OK?
While Blue Origin has launched its New Shepherd rocket several times on land — and was actually the first to do so with a reusable rocket — in this
dick measuring contest, the winner is the biggest, and there can only be one. Your move, Musk.
