The upcoming NS-20 flight, which is set for March 23, will be the fourth human flight for the New Shepard program. Also included in the flight crew are Marty Allen, husband and wife duo Sharon and Marc Hagle, Jim Kitchen and Dr. George Nield.

Each member of the flight crew will be carrying a postcard to space on behalf of Blue Origin’s foundation, Club for the Future. 

The foundation’s Postcards to Space program “gives students access to space on Blue Origin’s rockets,” said Blue Origin. Their mission is to inspire future generations to pursue careers in STEM.

Pete Davidson will become the latest celebrity to fly to space with Jeff Bezos' rocket company, Blue Origin, in a brief, suborbital flight slated for later this month.

The company announced Monday morning that Davidson, the Saturday Night Live Star who's become a pillar of entertainment intrigue amid his relationship with Kim Kardashian, will fly alongside five paying customers on Blue Origin's 60-foot-tall New Shepard rocket.

After years of quiet development, Blue Origin's space tourism rocket made its crewed launch debut last year with Bezos, flying alongside a heroine of the space community, 

Since then, Blue Origin has been making headlines for flying other well-known names on two subsequent flights, including Star Trek star William Shatner and Good Morning America host Michael Strahan.
