Jeff Bezos ( founded Blue Origin in 2000 in Kent(Seattle), Washington:

"Our first objective is developing New Shepard, a vertical take-off, vertical-landing vehicle designed to take a small number of astronauts on a sub-orbital journey into space.

"On the morning of November 13, 2006, we launched and landed Goddard – a first development vehicle in the New Shepard program."
