bluShift Aerospace successfully launches first commercial biofuel-powered rocket

February 2, 2021 |

In Maine, the BBC reports bluShift Aerospace was successful in launching its first commercial biofuel-powered rocket in its efforts to become the “Uber” of space, calling SpaceX a freight train to space due to the difference in the rockets’ sizes. Those larger rockets can carry thousands of kilos of cargo while bluShift’s smaller Spacedust 1.0 rocket can carry one or two payloads. The company has spent the last six years developing a bio-based rocket fuel from an unknown feedstock source or technology that is cheaper than fossil-based rocket fuel on a per kilo basis.
