Iâ€™m back baby with stuff that weighs more than me. Sometimes when I feel like the heaviest thing on the planet, I feel the need for a little perspective. Thatâ€™s when I take time to recognize that there are definitely things on the planet (and sometimes off the planet) that weigh more than me. And I just couldnâ€™t resist this moment to talk about Jeff Bezosâ€™ New Shepard Rocket which looks like a, well, never mind. Anyways, Jeff wants you to know itâ€™s big. I mean REALLY big.
Height 49 ft. (15.00 meters)
Diameter 22.90 ft. (7.00 meters)
Weight (unfueled) 43,346 pounds (20,569 kg)
Gross mass 165,000 pounds (75,000 kg)
Conclusion: Full or empty, the New Shepard Rocket weighs more than me.
