PETE Davidson was rumored to be flying into space on Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin spacecraft – so did it happen?
It turns out that Davidson didn’t fly with Blue Origin and had his seat replaced by the company’s chief architect, Gary Lai.
Has Pete Davidson gone to space?
Blue Origin’s next flight was scheduled to depart on March 29, 2022, but will be a short film for a Saturday Night Live comedian.
News of Davidson’s departure was announced on March 17, 2022, after the company announced that the flight had to be rescheduled from its original March 23 departure.
“The 20th flight of Blue Origin’s New Shepard has been rescheduled to Tuesday 29th March. Pete Davidson can no longer join the NS-20 crew on this mission. We will announce the sixth crew member in the coming days.” Blue Origin tweeted back then.
What did Pete Davidson say about space?
At the time, an exact reason for Davidson’s departure was not made clear, as a source close to the star previously told Page Six that he was “excited” about the adventure.
“Pete is excited. They haven’t signed a contract yet, but it looks like they will. Details are being finalized,” the source previously said
Other members of the upcoming flight include Marty Allen, March and Sharon Hagle, Jim Kitchen and Dr. George Nield.
Blue Origin hasn’t disclosed the price of a ticket to fly on its rocket called the New Shepard, but revenue for the company was nearly $100 million last year, according to The New York Times.
While it’s unclear how much of that revenue came from ticket sales, Jeff Bezos told the Times that the company is doing “really well with private sales.”
At a public auction for a seat on the first Blue Origin flight, Justin Sun, CEO of blockchain platform Tron, ended up paying $28 million for a ticket.
While Davidson’s ticket to heaven probably wouldn’t come cheap, it certainly would, according to Engadget.
