On June 4, 2022, Blue Origin successfully completed its fifth manned space flight and the 21st flight of the New Shepard program.
The crew included: NS-19 investor and astronaut Evan Dick; electrical engineer and former NASA test manager Katya Echazarreta; Hamish Harding, business jet pilot and president of Action Aviation; civil production engineer Victor Correa Hespanha; adventurer and co-founder of Dream Variation Ventures Jaison Robinson; and explorer and co-founder of private equity firm Insight Equity Victor Vescovo, a retired navy commander.
“It was an honor to pilot this special crew of explorers and true pioneers today,” said Phil Joyce, senior vice president of New Shepard. “Thank you to the entire New Shepard team for your tireless work and dedication to this program. Each mission is an opportunity to provide six others with the life-changing experience of witnessing the beauty and the fragility of our planet from space. It is a step towards realizing our vision of millions of people living and working in space for the benefit of Earth.
