In 1961 Alan Shepard became the first American in space, a decade later, he walked on the moon. Mr. Shepard carved the frontiers of space exploration so that we could pave the path. It’s with that legacy in mind that the New Shepard was created. The Estes New Shepard brings the feeling of exploration and the excitement of a launch. The Estes New Shepard is a 1/66th scale model of the Blue Origin New Shepard launch vehicle. It flies to altitude on a C5-3 or C6-3 engine and is capable of as much as 400 ft. After deploying the capsule, it falls through the atmosphere under a large parachute to gently touch down.
