Bezos unleashes space rocket prototype

From Cnet:
After years of secrecy surrounding his space exploration venture (Blue Origin), founder Jeff Bezos is pumping up his aspirations with a first-generation suborbital space rocket and an open plea to hire aerospace engineers.

Here is a video of the launch. Maximum altitude on this first development flight was about 285 feet.

This on-board video shows a landing gear and a thruster. You can see small movements of the thruster as it vectors to control the vehicle
