Blue Origin once again successfully launched and landed its New Shepard suborbital rocket during a spectacular test flight Friday.

Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos' private space flight company launched and landed the exact same rocket last November.

"The first rocket to fly above the Karman Line and then land vertically upon the Earth is now the first to have done it twice," Blue Origin states in the video below.

The Karman Line" is the unofficial line that marks the start of space 100 km above the Earth.

In a blog post Bezos said "Data from the November mission matched our preflight predictions closely, which made preparations for today’s re-flight relatively straightforward."

Blue Origin hopes to ultimately launch larger payloads into orbit with a reusable rocket, as well as an orbital vehicle.
