Join us on October 19th at the City Club where Clay Mowry will discuss Blue Origin’s development of re-usable orbital launch systems.
Blue Origin developed the New Shepard, a reusable, suborbital launch vehicle to test their principle of “vertical take-off and vertical landing”. The first flight of this vehicle took place in April 2015, with a single New Shepard completing five flights until finally being retired in October 2016. The New Glenn heavy launch vehicle was announced in September 2016. It will incorporate a fully reusable first stage powered by seven BE-4 methane/LOX engines.
Clay Mowry is Vice President for global sales, marketing and customer experience at Blue Origin, a private space company developing launch vehicles and technologies that dramatically improve access to space for people and payloads. His mission is to provide customers with safe and affordable commercial space transportation services using the reusable New Shepard & New Glenn launch vehicles.
Clay came to Blue Origin from Arianespace, Inc. where he served for 15 years as Chairman and President. He also served for six years as the founding Executive Director for the Satellite Industry Association (SIA).
Clay Mowry received a Master of Business of Administration from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., and a Bachelor of Arts in politics and government from Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio.
