Blue Origin has changed the configuration of the second stage of the rocket New Glenn

In 2016, Blue Origin announced the development of New Glenn heavy rocket. It will be issued in two and three-stage modifications. The two-stage version of New Glenn should be capable of delivering 45 tons to low Earth orbit and up to 13 tons to a geo-transfer orbit. The first stage of the system will be reusable. After disconnection, it must make a vertical landing on engines like a Falcon 9 rocket.

Currently, the first launch of New Glenn is announced for 2020. Of course, this is an approximate date, which may change several times. It is worth reminding that the first flight of the Falcon Heavy took place five years after the initial declared date. But it seems that Blue Origin really want to meet this deadline. Recently it became known that the management of the company decided to change the layout of the second stage of the rocket.

Test BE-4
Initially, the second stage of the New Glenn was to be equipped with a single methane-oxygen engine BE-4.However, according to the new design, now she will receive two modified BE-3U engines operating on a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen.

BE-3 Test
Replacing the engine will require lengthening the second stage of the New Glenn. But representatives of the company are confident that this solution will simplify its design and save time. The BE-3 engines are already being used in the New Shepard suborbital system, while the BE-4 is still in the testing phase and has not yet been tested in actual flight conditions. B Blue Origin hopes the replacement will allow New Glenn to conduct its first test in the fourth quarter of 2020.
