Laura Shepard Churchley, the daughter of Alan Shepard, the first American in space, will be among the six passengers who will be on the next Blue Origin flight in early December, 60 years after her father’s historic flight.
The space company, founded by American billionaire Jeff Bezos, announced on Tuesday that its third manned flight will take off from West Texas on December 9.
Blue Origin also invited another American celebrity, Michael Strahan, one of the hosts of the morning television program “Good Morning America” ​​to participate in the trip.
The flight also includes four other passengers who paid for their tickets, businessmen Dylan Taylor and Evan Dick, and a man named Line Pace with his son Cameron.
Since its manufacture, Blue Origin has named its rocket “New Shepard” in honor of Alan Shepard.
“I find it very amusing to say that an authentic Shepherd will be flying the New Shepherd,” Laura Shepard Churchley said in a video posted to Blue Origin. “I am very proud of my father’s history.”
Alan Shepard conducted a 15-minute spaceflight on May 5, 1961, 23 days after the historic flight of Soviet Yuri Gagarin, who was the first human to go into space.
Sheppard was also the fifth of 12 men to set foot on the moon so far, and he died in 1998.
His daughter will not stay in space longer than her father, as the suborbital flights organized by “Blue Origin” last only ten minutes.
Among the most prominent participants in the previous two trips were Jeff Bezos himself, and actor William Shatner, who embodied the character of Captain Kirk in the famous “Star Trek” series.
