Pete Davidson is going to space with Jeff Bezos. He will be part of the next Blue Origin mission happening on March 23rd. In case you forgot, Blue Origin is the space company Bezos founded.
Davidson will not be alone in his space adventures. Marty Allen, Sharon and Marc Hagle, Jim Kitchen and George Nield will also be going. This will be the New Shepard program’s fourth human flight. Davidson is not the first celeb name to be on a Blue Origin space flight, as Michael Strahan went in December 2021.
The launch is set to takeoff at 9:30am ET from Launch Site One in West Texas. According to the release, “Each astronaut on board NS-20 will carry a postcard to space on behalf of Blue Origin’s foundation, Club for the Future, whose Postcards to Space program gives students access to space on Blue Origin’s rockets. The Club’s mission is to inspire future generations to pursue careers in STEM for the benefit of Earth.”
