The company “Blue Origin” announced that it had to postpone its next flight into space by two days due to weather conditions, which is expected to be the daughter of the first American to go into space, its most prominent passenger.
The company explained that the flight, which was originally scheduled for Thursday, was postponed to 08:45 local time on Saturday (14:45 GMT) due to winds expected on Thursday, and the flight will depart from West Texas.
Laura Shepard Churchley, the daughter of Alan Shepard who made a historic flight into space in 1961, was invited to participate in the third manned flight for the space company founded by American billionaire Jeff Bezos.
Since its manufacture, Blue Origin has named its rocket “New Shepard” in honor of Alan Shepard.
Blue Origin also invited another American celebrity, Michael Strahan, one of the hosts of the morning television program “Good Morning America” to participate in the trip.
The flight also includes four other passengers who paid for their tickets, businessmen Dylan Taylor and Evan Dick, and a man named Line Pace with his son Cameron.
They will only remain in space for a short time, as the suborbital flights organized by “Blue Origin” last only about ten minutes between takeoff and return to Earth.
