That’s right. Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson is embarking on a brand-new journey, which we can safely claim to be “out of this world.”
The 28-year-old superstar is set to be one of the six astronauts to take part in Blue Origin’s 20th space mission scheduled to take off next week, on March 23rd at 8:30 local time from West of Texas. For all those who don’t know, Blue Origin is Jeff Bezos’s privately funded space flight company.
The rest of the crew taking part in the flight include notable figures such as Marty Allen, Sharon Hagle, and Dr. George Nield.
Insiders report that Davidson has also had the wish to go to space, and he is looking forward to his trip.
