Jeff Bezos On Blue Origin's Space Odyssey: New Shepard's Flight Time, Path, Passengers, And All About The Maharashtra-Born Woman In The Engineering Crew

WORLD Team Latestly|

Blue Origin will launch its first crewed mission on its New Shepard rocket on July 20 to fly its billionaire founder Jeff Bezos and three other passengers to suborbital space and back. Liftoff is set for 9 am EDT (1300 GMT) from Blue Origin's Launch Site One in West Texas. It will launch Bezos, his brother Mark Bezos, Mercury 13 & aviation pioneer Wally Funk & 18-year-old Oliver Daemon. Bezos and his three crewmates won't wear pressurised spacesuits when they launch. Instead they'll wear Blue Origin's standard-issue flight suits. Meanwhile, a 30-year-old woman from Maharashtra is part of the team of engineers that built Blue Origin's suborbital space rocket New Shephard. A systems engineer at the spaceflight services company, Sanjal Gavande was born in Kalyan and dreamed of building a spaceship even as a child. Blue Origin's upcoming launch, which it has called the First Human Flight, will launch Bezos & the crew members to an altitude of 62 miles (100 kilometers), where they will experience 3-4 minutes of weightlessness before returning to Earth in their space capsule. They will land in the West Texas desert to be retrieved by a recovery team. Watch the video to know more.
