Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin successfully launched six people into suborbital space

Jeff BezosBlue Origin made her sixth tourist flight into suborbital space with several crew members aboard a capsule that made history: two are now the first worthy Egyptians and Portuguese to visit the last frontier, and one is the first woman to complete the Explorer’s Extreme Trifecta.

Sarah Sabry, founder of the Deep Space Initiative and Portuguese businessman Mario Ferreira, made history when a New Shepard rocket took off at 9:57 a.m. ET from the company’s west. Texas means.

The mission also helped Vanessa O’Brien complete the top three in the Guinness World Records category, in which a person reaches the highest point on Earth, the deepest point in the sea, and makes it to space.

Also on the epic journey were Clint Kelly III, former member of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Steve Young, former owner Floridalargest communications company and YouTube star Kobe Cotton.

The launch was delayed by 20 minutes, causing the crew to anxiously wait inside the capsule, but as the clock hit “zero”, a loud roar rang through the desert as the New Shepard ignited its seven engines. “God, titanium feather,” said a Blue Origin commentator, referring to the name the team has given itself.

Max Q, the point at which the aerospacecraft reaches its maximum dynamic pressure, was reached one minute and five seconds after launch, with New Shepard traveling at over 1,600 mph.

And two minutes and 31 seconds later, the shiny white crew capsule separated from the rocket and continued its journey into space.

The capsule hovered for about five minutes at an altitude of 62 miles above the surface, and then made a proud flight back to Earth.

Three red and white parachutes took off from the capsule eight minutes and 30 seconds later, helping the craft return to earth for a soft landing in the Texas desert.

The New Shepard rocket lifted off at 9:57 a.m. ET after a 20-minute delay.

Crew members can be heard screaming “we won’t die” inside the capsule, while others describe how they sweat after an epic adventure.

The journey lasted only 10 minutes and 27 seconds, but as a Blue Origin commentator said, “the experience will last a lifetime.”

Today’s mission also marks the 22nd launch of New Shepard.

All six participants received special coins shortly after arriving at the training center this morning.

The coin represents belonging and accomplishment of something great and is awarded only to astronauts who have completed their training and are ready to fly on a spacecraft.

The team climbed the tower about 30 minutes before launch, and each rang a hanging silver bell before going through a tunnel on their way to the launch pod, which says “light this candle” above it.

And now, at 10:09 AM ET, the crew has wrapped up “one of the most amazing days of my life.”

Each crew member is now considered an astronaut.

Cotton is known for his YouTube sports channel Dude Perfect, which has 57 million subscribers.

The channel was born in 2009 when Cotton and his college roommates Garrett Hilbert, Tyler Toney, Cody Jones and his brother Corey Cotton began posting comedy videos and stunts.

Cotton’s site was sponsored by MoonDAO, which describes itself as “an international collective of people united by the mission of decentralizing access to space exploration and exploration.”

Sabri, 29, became the first Egyptian to fly into space. Her Deep Space Initiative is working to make space exploration more accessible.

She has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the American University in Cairo and a master’s degree in biomedical engineering from the Politecnico di Milano.

And Sabri’s place is sponsored by Space for Humanity.

The journey lasted only 10 minutes and 27 seconds, but as a Blue Origin commentator said,

This non-profit organization “serves purposeful leaders through sponsored spaceflight to create a profound shift in perspective so that every citizen astronaut returns with a broader perspective to address our most intractable problems and their solutions.”

Ferreira, 54, the first person from Portugal to fly into space, is an entrepreneur, investor and president of Pluris Investments Group.

According to space.comFerreira spends his free time scuba diving, running, and participating in a car rally known as the Dakar.

Sabri is now the first person of Portuguese descent, and Cotton could be considered the first YouTube star to visit the last frontier.

Steve Young

Vanessa O'Brien

Yang told DailyMail.com that he paid for his seat on board the rocket. He is a businessman living in Florida. O’Brien made history on Thursday by becoming the first woman to complete the Explorer Extreme Trifecta.

O’Brien, 57, also made history on Thursday by becoming the first woman to complete the Explorers’ extreme triumph by reaching space.

She climbed the highest peak of the Earth, Mount Everest, and went to the deepest place on our planet – the Challenger Abyss. And now the last part of the trifecta is her journey into space.

Kelly has been with DARPA since 1984 and is credited with developing the first technologies that ushered in the era of autonomous vehicles.

And Young, 59, a paying customer, is known for owning Florida’s largest telecommunications contractor, Young’s Communications, or Y-com.

Young told DailyMail.com that he sold the company when it was making $100 million a year and it was acquired by Grain Management, which only buys companies worth between $20 million and $150 million.

Young, who lives in Indianantica, also owns Pineapples, a restaurant, concert hall and rooftop bar in O Gully, Florida, which he opened shortly before selling to Y-com.

The NS-22 brings the total number of people flown into Blue Origin space to 31 since the first flight in July 2021, which carried Bezos himself to the last frontier.
