Blue Origin Engineer to Replace SNL Star Pete Davidson on Space Flight

 Replace SNL Star Pete Davidson on Space Flight

In a statement Monday night, President and Co-founder of Space Exploration Technologies Corp, Robert Reilly indicated that the space tourism company intends to begin flying people from New Zealand and South America to go into orbit aboard its rockets for short periods. However, by then, he stated that they’ll first try to take passengers on shorter rides. He also cited the growing number of Covid cases as reason to postpone the trip.

“There are currently more than 12,000 active Covid cases across much of the United States. Many places are experiencing surges in case numbers at a fast rate. Our country is being challenged with many new variants of the virus, which makes it far too difficult to travel. Therefore, we have decided to postpone our scheduled flights so the safety of all parties can be ensured,” Reilly said.

Blue Origin has been developing suborbital space tourism since last year. It has carried just over 100 tourists into Earths clouds and back again. The company has plans to begin small groups of passengers flying down to the moon in 2024, but not before 2028 at the earliest. By then, the US would likely ban any astronauts from entering the airways and restricting entry through its airports. For instance, if NASA were to ban anyone who is deemed to be carrying coronavirus, the only way anyone could safely enter space would be via private transportation such as those operated by Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic Holdings Inc.

The space tourism industry may still be growing as early 2021

The space tourism industry may still be growing as early 2021 sees several launches expected to reach the earth’s highest peaks. An upcoming record high-altitude launch is planned for September 14 that will see billionaire Richard Branson fly into space alongside Richard Gere. His brother Jeff Bezos has flown four times into space but hasn’t yet had a seat onboard a plane for an up-close look from above. A pair of German billionaires are slated to float into space next month, including one whose business is to help scientists study the human genome. Another passenger who’s set to be the first person to fly into space is Elon Musk, CEO of electric vehicle maker Tesla Inc., whose goal is to bring his rocket company to the point where it can send humans to space and send them back home.

SpaceX has already sent two astronauts to the International Space Station

SpaceX has already sent two astronauts to the International Space Station but is set to become the third privately owned spaceflight company to do so. SpaceX founder Elon Musk believes it’s time to put paid to his “flying car” as SpaceX prepares for commercialization of future spacecraft. Musk himself says he is looking at launching humans around a mile a minute in space before sending them toward Earth. Musk has long been considered among the most ambitious businessmen in history, having founded both companies but becoming increasingly frustrated that the U.S. had taken a step backward in his quest to create a sustainable future through private investing.

Last week, reports that SpaceX won approval from the FAA

Last week, reports that SpaceX won approval from the FAA to carry seven crew members on the Crew-1 mission to the ISS was reported to have made him happy. According to SpaceNews, SpaceX’s acting manager of astronaut training, Mike Gold, said that SpaceX is working towards landing its first astronauts for the NASA program next month. “SpaceX is the team that brought us to the Moon and is ready to take astronauts to the Moon,” Gold told AFP. “But there’s a lot of work to do.” He continued: “We’re going to get approval in October for the Crew-1 astronauts. And I think I speak for everyone here when I say SpaceX is ready. The work is done. We’ve got seven people who are certified for the job.”
