Blue Origin Flight 2 - 12/18/2021

C6-3. SCRS (Santa Claus Rocket System) flight. Carrying Tiny Mate of Chipper Jones. Kevlar shock cord burned through at ejection and the booster separated from the capsule and parachute. Fortunately, the booster landed in a bush sustaining no damage and the capsule came down gently under the 18" parachute. Chipper survived!
