Enlarge/ Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos has an important engine test coming up soon.Win McNamee/Getty ImagesShare this storyKey Blue Origin officials have begun to drop hints about the imminent hot-fire test of the company's new rocket engine, the BE-4.

And last Wednesday the company's director of business development, Brett Alexander, said during a Center for Strategic and International Studies panel discussion the test "was coming soon."For many people, a rocket engine is just a rocket engine. But Blue Origin's new engine is a big deal for a number of reasons, not the least of which is its 550,000 pounds of thrust at sea level, more powerful than a space shuttle main engine, which had 418,000 pounds of thr
