Today, on Wednesday 29th 2017, Blue Origin made a decision to share with public with rendered pictures of interior of their space vehicle - New Shepard capsule. The spacecraft is designed with surrounding large 42.7 x 2.86 inch windows beside each seat, giving passengers a spectacular personal view of space.

The space-travel company has released new images of the the New Shepard rocket that show the capsule's interior design.

All pictures were provided by Blue Origin. The windows are constructed of multiple layers of fracture-tough transparencies, designed in order to provide the best view from inside the craft.

The pictures also show passengers clad in deep-blue, zip-up tops and black form-fitting trousers. Bezos's company successfully landed the first reusable rocket after officially going to space in November, and has repeated the feat four times.

As recently as October 2016, Bezos said the company was on track to make its first human test flights by the end of 2017, with the first customer flights taking place in 2018.

"The high-fidelity capsule mock-up will be on display alongside the New Shepard reusable booster that flew to space and returned five times", Bezos said. The commercial spaceflight company that has yet to fly any crewed missions into space plans to send two non-astronauts beyond Earth's orbit next year.

In his latest email update, Bezos informed, "Our New Shepard flight-test program is focused on demonstrating the performance and robustness of the system". "In parallel, we've been designing the capsule interior with an eye toward precision engineering, safety, and comfort". Their orbital rocket will be named New Glenn, named for John Glenn, the first American in orbit. Reporters visiting the exclusive event can even test the reclining seats which can be seen below emblazoned with the Blue Origin feather logo. The reason why these tickets are so relatively cheap is the New Glenn rocket was created to be reusable.
