Yesterday, Blue Origin launched their rocket for the third time, bringing it in for a successful landing.

The company hasn’t released video of the event yet, but they have posted up several images from the launch and landing.

According to the company, their New Shepard rocket reached an altitude of 339,138 feet:

At 3,635 feet, the BT-3 section restarted and began its controlled decent before coming in for a landing.
