Pete Davidson Will Be Heading to West Texas Then Space This Month
Looks like Jeff Bezos is bringing more celebrities up into space. This time we'll see SNL funnyman Pete Davidson heading up into the atmosphere. Pete Davidson may be known as a hilarious comedian, but he's been in the headlines a lot for his love life as well. Now, people could know his name for his sky-high ambitions with billionaire Jeff Bezos.
Jeff Bezo's Blue Origin company announced this week that Pete Davidson would be heading up into space later this month. Davidson will be on a six-person team that will be taking off on March 23rd. Pete isn't the first celebrity to beheading up into space. Former NFL star and Good Morning America host Michael Strahan went up into space back in December and actor William Shatner went up in a Blue Origin rocket back in October of 2021.
Pete Davidson will be joining the fourth human flight into space, according to NBC News. This is the 20th flight overall for the New Shepard program, run by Jeff Bezo's Blue Origin. Typically, when a group is preparing to go up into space they spend time in Van Horn before for training exercises. This means Davidson could be flying into El Paso before heading out into Van Horn. No word yet on whether or not Pete's girlfriend Kim Kardashian would be joining him on the ground but Kardashian fans are hoping we could see her in the Sun City.
