We already knew that Amazon provided a rare public demonstration of its delivery drone dropping off some sunscreen at this week’s MARS 2017 conference in Palm Springs, Calif. We also knew that Blue Origin’s New Shepard suborbital rocket ship, which went to space and back five times, was on display at the invitation-only event, organized by Amazon to show off frontier technologies in Machine learning, home Automation, Robotics and Space exploration. Nevertheless, it’s nice to see a fresh video showing the drone at work with the spaceship in the background. This video was passed along by CNET’s Ben Fox Rubin, who’s just now catching up with the story. We’re adding a couple of selfies tweeted from the MARS 2017 conference that show Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon (and Blue Origin).
