Just a few Months ago, the space company Blue Origin, founded and funded by Jeff Bezos, did not seem to make history on July 20, 2021. But it happened.
That was the day when Marie Lace Les (Guardian) Funk went into space.
Oh, yes, yes, Blue Origin and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos were also in the capsule, along with his first Peace Space customer, 18-year-old Oliver Dimon. And Jeff’s brother, whom he described as “the funniest man in space,” was praised by many experienced space reporters in West Texas today for his launch. (They have evidence 2 funny astronauts Podcast hosted by Mike Massimino and Garrett Reisman.)
But while sending the world’s richest man into space is a surprising gamble, and the advent of commercial space tourism is a landmark, the Guardian is a funk sui genre. A story that is being told in a thousand media outlets this week and is being redeveloped, in 1960, Funk was part of the original Mercury 13, the group trained to be the first female astronauts. But NASA would not sign the program, and for the past 60 years, Funk, an expert pilot and a diligent aviation safety investigator, became aware of the spaceship seat being occupied and rejected it. In 2010, he signed up for ડો 200,000 space on Richard Branson’s VSS Unity, Expecting a Virgin Galactic suborbital flight at some point in that decade. The frustration created as his date never came close. Then, out of the blue, Bezos offered him a spot on today’s new Shepard launch.
As the world has learned today, it was more than ready. His fellow crew members repeatedly claimed that the octogenarians were the most prepared and most suitable of them all, and certainly his energy was clear to all today, as the crew was wrapped in a capsule in the lift-off funnel – a time when the person would forgive. A little uncomfortable – she was impatiently pulling towards the Carmen line. “I felt so charged,” he said later.
“We had a six-minute hold, and she was amazed at what it took so long.” “What is all this! We are burning the light of day!”
Sure enough, when New Shepherd took the flight and flew 65 miles, she was out of her seat and doing crazy drills. “Oh! I love it! I love it! “She was crying, because she and her soldiers looked like a transformative performance of the Piloboles Dance Congregation.
During the post-flight press conference, she owned her room from the moment she walked on stage. (Considering that the room was a “pantry,” the facility at Blue Origin Base was large enough to hold a new Shepard rocket behind her, this was saying something.) Instead of hanging on to her seat like the others, she stepped on the edge of her stage and her hands. Spread, victory bold like Megan Rapino. Each time he spoke, he stood up, holding Mike’s face and booming his comment. The crowd included journalists, friends and family of the crew, and Alan Shepard’s two daughters.
