Description

Jeff Bezos's ***** has made a few trips up and down to give up-and-down joyrides to tourists, but Blue Origin has yet to launch any rocket into orbit. NASA has booked a launch of its Mars ESCAPADE probe on a New Glenn rocket in the second half of 2024. Will Blue Origin finally get a launch into -- or beyond -- orbit?

Decision Logic

YES wins if Blue Origin successfully orbits a payload or gets ESCAPADE on its way to Mars.

NO wins if Blue Origin fails to launch a payload to orbit or beyond before the calendar flips to 2025.

A payload may include a mass simulator, real satellite, or probe.

Local timezone of launch controls, so 11:59pm California time on December 31 2024, for a launch from California, is still a success even though in UTC it would already be 2025.

If I'd known the word "*****" was going to be censored, I would have called it something else. :-) Anyway, that refers to the dinky little non-orbital-class "space tourism" rocket that Bezos has been launching for tourist flights for a few years.
