I hope my story will inspire you to break boundaries and reach for the stars!
As the first Black woman confirmed to fly with Blue Origin on New Shepard, I am expected to be the sixth Black woman to cross the Kármán line – the internationally recognized boundary of space!
New Shepard is a reusable suborbital rocket system named after astronaut Alan Shepard, the first American to go to space.
30 years after former NASA astronaut Mae Jemison became the first Black woman to travel to space in 1992, I am honored to follow in her footsteps as we begin to realize the potential of public access to space!
