Last month, an unnamed courtier won a seat on New Shepherd’s first crew spaceflight, a ship that would take Jeff Bezos and his brother 100 kilometers (62 miles) from Earth. The determinants have now canceled their flight citing the contradictions, something more important needs to be done that day than going into the speaking space. In a press release, Blue Origin revealed that 18-year-old Oliver Demon will replace the anonymous person. He will be the youngest person in space, and Wally Funk – also the oldest ascendant – at 82 years old.
Not much has been revealed about the new passenger, but it’s a safe bet that Dutch teenager Somerset Capital CEO Jose Daiman’s son, Aris Teknikaya, according to Eric Berger’s space editor. “Flying in New Shepard will fulfill a lifelong dream for Oliver, who has been fascinated by space, the moon and rockets since he was four years old,” Blue Origin wrote in the release. “Oliver graduated from high school in 2020 and took a gap year before continuing his studies to obtain his private pilot’s license. This September, Oliver will join the University of Utrecht in Physics and Innovation Management.”
The next flight will be taken with the blue source instead of the previous winner, which does not conflict with their earthly promises. “We thank the auction winner for the club’s generous support for the future and are honored to welcome Oliver to fly with us at New Shepard,” said Bob Smith, CEO of Blue Origin. “It marks the beginning of commercial activities for New Shepard and Oliver represents a new generation that will help us travel through space.” The 20-minute flight will take place on July 20th, increasing the speed of the crew to 3GS before the capsule is detached. At this point, they can unravel and feel the effects of weightlessness before returning to re-enter Earth’s atmosphere three minutes later.
Passengers will land in the West Texas desert with the help of a parachute deployed by the capsule, where the landing crew will meet them. The ship will be carrying Jeff Bezos, his brother Oliver Damen and Wally Funk. By the time they get there, Elon Musk will briefly become the richest man in the world, but only his rival defeated him in space.
