Pete Davidson Will No Longer be on Blue Origin Flight to Space
It appears Pete Davidson will not be going into space after all.
Three days after announcing that "SNL" comedian Pete Davidson would take part in their next flight, Jeff Bezos' company announced on Thursday night that the date of the flight had changed and that Davidson would no longer be taking part.
“Blue Origin’s 20th flight of New Shepard has shifted to Tuesday, March 29. Pete Davidson is no longer able to join the NS-20 crew on this mission,” the tweet reads. “We will announce the sixth crew member in the coming days.”
Davidson's reasons for leaving the flight are unknown at this time.
The flight was originally scheduled for March 23. The crew includes Party America CEO Marty Allen, philanthropist and real estate mogul Marc Hagle and his wife, Sharon Hagle; University of North Carolina professor Jim Kitchen; and Dr. George Nield, president of Commercial Space Technologies. The excursion will be the company's fourth human flight, and its 20th overall.
