One of Blue Origin’s powerful BE-4 rocket engines suffered a major failure during testing last month, according to CNBC.

The BE-4 — the engine that will power Blue Origin’s New Glenn rocket and the United Launch Alliance (ULA) Vulcan Centaur — exploded about 10 seconds in the test, which Blue Origin conducted at its West Texas facility on June 30, CNBC’s Michael Sheetz reported on Tuesday (July 11).
