“Blue Origin’s 20th flight of New Shepard has shifted to Tuesday, March 29,” the enterprise claimed. “Pete Davidson is no for a longer time capable to be part of the NS-20 crew on this mission. We will announce the sixth crew member in the coming times.”

Davidson was originally slated to take off on March 23 with Marty Allen, spouse and wife duo Sharon and Marc Hagle, Jim Kitchen and George Nield.
This will be the New Shepard program’s fourth excursion with men and women. The initially flight carried Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos, his brother Mark, 82-year-outdated aviation pioneer Wally Funk and 18-yr-previous Oliver Daemen. Other celebs — including William Shatner and Michael Strahan — have also traveled to place on Bezos’ flights.
