Michael Strahan has returned to Earth after becoming a member of Jeff Bezos’ rocket firm on a visit to house.
On Saturday, Michael and 5 different crew members, together with Laura Shepard Churchley, the daughter of Alan Shepard, took flight round 9:45 am. The lift-off for the New Shepard’s suborbital flight was live-streamed on YouTube. The Blue Origin rocket took off into house from Bezos’ ranch close to Van Horn, Texas.
The journey was 10-minutes lengthy and included the crew being weightless for roughly 4 minutes earlier than returning to Earth.
Strahan describes the flight as “unreal” and says he “wants to go back” after touchdown in Texas.

Nevertheless, Strahan determined to carry a pack of mementos, his Tremendous Bowl XLII Ring, a fortunate $2 invoice, a necklace from his girlfriend’s late grandmother & 12 shell casings from the 12-gun salute carried out at his father funeral.
In response to the Blue Origin web site, the house car might maintain as much as six passengers at a time. The New Shepard spacecraft can also be “fully autonomous,” which means there isn’t a pilot. The car was “designed to take astronauts and research payloads past the Kármán line — the internationally recognized boundary of space.”
Michael shared his pleasure in an Instagram video, saying the expertise was surreal and unbelievable. The previous NFL participant made a joke captioning the video, “touchdown has a new meaning now.”
