Landing was a bit off center, some room for improvement there. But overall the system looks solid.
Just watched the landing again, and it looked like it was coming down pretty vertical until very close to the ground when it went to the side, corrected back into the landing pad and landed. Could have been wind as the dust was being blow in the same direction.

... and watching again, it was thrusting sideways for a sometime and not really moving horizontally, so it had to be fighting winds.

Looking at the images makes me think of headlines such as: A group of masked individuals took over the spacecraft minutes before launch 🤣 🤣

New graphics showing the mission events and data... I'm sure Virgin Galactic loves the "Kármán" label. :LOL:

I am quite unfamiliar with Blue Origin, but I want to say that New Shepard is a useless waste of money. It is flown more than 10 times with no crewed mission. It will never boost space tourism if it does not have any crewed flight, no matter how expensive it will be. I will be happy if BO fly crewed missions using New Shepard instead of performing these unmanned stunts.
