I'd hardly say the secret of the Blue Origin spaceship company has been fully revealed, but this story at Space.com at least has a few more morsels of information than we had been privvy to before.
It would be nice to know a little more about their Goddard rocket and the New Shepard spacecraft, but alas, it seems that will not happen until they are fully functioning.
Jeff Bezos, the founder/owner of Amazon.com, has a strictly enforced code of silence at his new rocket design company. And for good reason, it seems.
Burt Rutan, of Scaled Composites (the company which built SpaceShip One and SpaceShip Two) has himself often lamented those in his industry who promise the Moon and fail to deliver. Rutan is famous for being "tight-lipped."
