Blue Origin’s fifth manned spaceflight, a mission dubbed NS-21, is scheduled for launch on June 4, 2022 from the company’s West Texas facility.
On NS-21, Blue Origin’s New Shepard vehicle will carry six people – Katya Echazarreta, Victor Correa Hespanha, Jaison Robinson, Victor Vescovo, Hamish Harding and Evan Dick – to and from suborbital space.
Echazarreta, 26, will become the first Mexican-born woman and the youngest American to reach space. Dick becomes the first-ever returning New Shepard crew member; He also flew on the NS-19 mission, launched in December 2021.
