Blue Origin’s fifth human spaceflight, a mission called NS-21, launched from the company’s West Texas site on June 4, 2022.
On NS-21, Blue Origin’s New Shepard vehicle carried six people — Katya Echazarreta, Victor Correa Hespanha, Jaison Robinson, Victor Vescovo, Hamish Harding and Evan Dick — to suborbital space and back.
The 26-year-old Echazarreta became the first Mexican-born woman, and the youngest American woman, to reach space. Dick became the first-ever repeat New Shepard crewmember; he also flew on the NS-19 mission, which launched in December 2021.
You can read more about all six passengers in our NS-21 crewmembers story. And you can see photos of the spaceflyers and their mission here, in this gallery.
