WEST TEXAS – Blue Origin successfully completed its sixth human spaceflight on Thursday, August 4. The astronaut crew included Brevard County resident Steve Young, Coby Cotton, Mário Ferreira, Vanessa O’Brien, Clint Kelly III and Sara Sabry.

Young ran a telecommunications contracting business in Brevard County, Young’s Communications LLC, between 1992 and 2021, and is now the owner of the Pineapples restaurant in Melbourne.

New Shepard lifted off from Blue Origin’s West Texas launch pad at 9:57 a.m. EDT and landed after 10 minutes flight.

New Shepard is a reusable, fully automated rocket-capsule combo. The rocket returns to Earth for a vertical powered landing close to the launch site, and the capsule comes down under parachutes shortly thereafter. Passengers aboard the vehicle get to see the curve of Earth against the blackness of space and experience a few minutes of weightlessness.

Blue Origin’s 750,000-square-foot manufacturing complex is located on Merritt Island near Kennedy Space Center.
