Blue Origin Flight Coverage
Blue Origin Launches Four Commercial Astronauts To Space And Back (with video)
“Blue Origin successfully completed New Shepard’s first human flight today with four private citizens onboard. The crew included Jeff Bezos, Mark Bezos, Wally Funk and Oliver Daemen, who all officially became astronauts when they passed the Kármán Line, the internationally recognized boundary of space.”
Keith’s note: FYI I will be live on BBC World News starting around 9:00 am to co-anchor live coverage of today’s Blue Origin flight.
I will be on BBC at noon to do a recap. I will be on Al Jazeera Arabic between 2:35-2:55 pm and then on Deutsche Welle just after 3:00 pm. and then ABC News Live at 3:15 pm. Then its a limo ride into DC and CNN’s Situation Room some time between 5-7 pm, a limo ride home, DW again at 7:00 pm, CGTN (US) just after 8:00 pm, CTV at 8:30 pm, and then CGTN (Beijing) at 10:00 pm. Then I crash.
Strange that a @BlueOrigin employee spent nearly all of the "press conference" talking and asking the questions – with dozens of actual news media there – and then only 3 actual media questions were allowed. Talk about running out the clock. #BlueOrigin
