Blue Origin reveals its rocketship

From MSNBC, via Boing Boing:

After years of working behind closed doors and locked gates, founder Jeff Bezos has finally lifted the curtain that shrouded Blue Origin, his space tourism venture.

Among the goodies now displayed on Blue Origin’s Web site are photos and videos from the venture’s maiden test flight in November, as seen from the ground as well as a rocket-cam … pictures from the West Texas launch range and Blue Origin’s production facility in a Seattle suburb … and even the Blue Origin coat of arms, emblazoned with the motto “Gradatim Ferociter” (Step by Step, Courageously).
