New Shepard fires abort motor after cat runs across mission director's keyboard

Written by @allrocketsboi

Van Horn, TX- Yesterday, Blue Origin launched NS-17, a New Shepard flight carrying multiple NASA experiments for a suborbital flight to 110 kilometers.

A tabby cat was seen walking on the mission director's console. Moments later, the capsule's abort system was fired by the cat and the mission was deemed a failure, thankfully, Blue Origin were able to recover New Shepard.

Chief Engineer for New Shepard, Jristopher Chaeger spoke regarding this statement, saying "This is a major setback and we will fire the employee who forgot to put their cat in a cage."

A Blue Origin insider by the name of Mrevor Tahlmann told us that Blue Origin will be suing the cat.

Now we don't know how the cat will get a lawyer but Blue Origin will be streaming the court hearings, which you can see here

We still don't know whether this will affect New Glenn's development but we believe they will downsize New Glenn's funding for the lawsuit.

This is satire, please don't sue us
