Blue Origin’s 5th human flight set to lift off May 20

Blue Origin

EL PASO, Texas – Blue Origin revealed its latest launch date and mission patch for NS-21.

Liftoff from Launch Site One is set for Friday, May 20.

A comment from Astronaut Even Dick inspired the mission patch. This will be Dick's second flight on New Shepard. After his first, Dick said reaching space in the crew capsule on NS-19 felt like climbing above the ocean's surface after a lifetime of living below the surface.

The first Mexican-born woman will fly to space. Katya Echazarreta's patch image features a lightning bolt, symbolizing her passion for electricity and her mission to increase the representation of women and minorities in STEM.
