The first woman to complete Extreme Explorers Trifecta flies on the Blue Origin space travel mission

Jeff Bezos ‘Blue Origin launched his sixth sightseeing trip into suborbital space that helped the first woman complete the Explorer’ s Extreme Trifecta.

This honor is achieved by reaching the highest point on Earth, venturing into the deepest corner of the sea, and flying into space – Victor Vescovo is the only other person to complete all three.

Vanessa O’Brien, 57, climbed the summit of Everest in 2012 and two years later, the British-American dived 35,843 feet to the Challenger Deep, the deepest known point on the Earth’s seabed.

Two other crew members also made history after Thursday’s launch. Sara Sabry and Mário Ferreira who are now the first decent Egyptians and Portuguese to go into space.

Along with this epic journey was also Clint Kelly III, a former member of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Steve Young, former owner of Florida’s largest communications company and YouTube star Coby Cotton.

The launch was delayed by 20 minutes, leaving the crew anxiously waiting inside the capsule, but when the clock reached “zero” at 9:57 ET, a loud roar was heard echoing in the desert as New Shepard started his seven engines. “God speed Titanium Feather,” said a Blue Origin commentator referring to the crew’s name.

Obrien is the second woman to reach Challenger Deep after astronaut Kathy Sullivan, who was part of O’Brien’s team who ventured into the depths. And Vescovo was the pilot who took her on a mission to reach the deepest point on the planet.

O’Brien grew up in Michigan, United States, and moved to London in 1999. She began a career in the consumer accounts industry for many large banking companies such as Bank of America, Morgan Stanley and Barclays Bank. But when the recession hit her in 2010, she changed her mind and quit her job to embark on a journey to complete the Explorer’s Extreme Trifecta.

The last part of the honor began when the New Shepherd rocket took off from the Blue Origin facility in West Texas.

The rocket hit Max Q, the point where an aerospace vehicle’s atmospheric flight reaches maximum dynamic pressure, one minute and five seconds after launch, while traveling at more than 1,600 miles per hour.

And after two minutes and 31 seconds, the crew’s glossy white capsule separated from the rocket and continued its journey into space.

The capsule was sucked in for about five minutes while 62 miles above the surface and then made a proud journey back to Earth.

Three red and white parachutes exploded from the capsule in eight minutes and 30 seconds, helping the craft return to land for a soft landing in the Texas desert.

The crew can be heard screaming “we won’t die” from inside the capsule, along with others describing how they feel sweaty from the epic adventure.

The journey took only 10 minutes and 27 seconds, but as a Blue Origin commentator put it, “the experience will last a lifetime”.

Today’s mission also marks the 22nd time the New Shepard has been launched.

All six members received a special challenge coin shortly after arriving at the training center earlier this morning.

The coin represents belonging and achieving something great and is awarded only to astronauts who have passed the training and are destined to fly on a spaceship.

The team climbed the tower about 30 minutes before launch and each rang a suspended silver bell before crossing a tunnel on their way to the pod, which above says “light this candle”.

And now at 10:09 am ET, the crew have finished “one of the most amazing days of their lives”.

Each crew member is now considered an astronaut.

Cotton is known for his Dude Perfect YouTube sports channel which has 57 million followers.

The channel started in 2009 when Cotton and his college roommates, Garrett Hilbert, Tyler Toney, Cody Jones and his brother, Cory Cotton, began posting comedy videos and trick shots.

Cotton’s post was sponsored by MoonDAO, which describes itself as “an international collective of people united on a mission to decentralize access to research and space exploration.”

Sabry, 29, is now the first Egyptian to fly into space. His company Deep Space Initiative works to increase accessibility for space research.

He has a degree in mechanical engineering from the American University of Cairo and a master’s degree in biomedical engineering from the Politecnico di Milano.

And Sabry’s place is sponsored by Space for Humanity.

The journey only took 10 minutes and 27 seconds, but as a Blue Origin commentator said,

This non-profit organization “serves purpose-oriented leaders through a sponsored spaceflight experience to create a profound shift in perspective so that every citizen astronaut comes back with a broader perspective to address our most difficult challenges and their solutions. “.

Ferreira, 54, the first Portuguese person to fly into space, is an entrepreneur, investor and president of Pluris Investments Group.

Young told DailyMail.com that he sold the company when it was generating $ 100 million a year and was acquired by Grain Management, which only buys companies worth between $ 20 million and $ 150 million.

Young, who lives in Indialantic, also owns Pineapples, a rooftop restaurant, music venue and bar in Eau Gallie, Florida that opened shortly before selling Y-com.

NS-22 brings the total of people transported into space by Blue Origin to 31 since the first took off in July 2021 and took Bezos himself to the last frontier.
