According to People, the Saturday Night Live star will be among six astronauts going on Blue Origin's 20th mission to space next week.
This definitely tracks. Back in January, Pete and GF Kim Kardashian attended a dinner party hosted by Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos in LA.
The flight is scheduled to launch on March 23 at 8:30 a.m. local time from Launch Site One in West Texas, and Pete and the other passengers will each carry a postcard for Blue Origin's foundation Club for the Future and their Postcards to Space program, which offers students access to space on Blue Origin's rockets.
Also headed to space: Marty Allen, angel investor and CEO of Party America; Sharon Hagle, founder of the SpaceKids Global nonprofit, her husband Marc Hagle, president and CEO of Tricor International; Jim Kitchen, a teacher at University of North Carolina, and Dr. George Nield, president of Commercial Space Technologies.
And Pete is the latest celeb to launch into space via Bezos' rocket program, after William Shatner and Michael Strahan.
Between this, his seemingly accidental A-list celebrity status, and dating every beautiful woman to ever exist, is Pete the luckiest guy...ever???
