Michael strahan is the new Rocket Man !!!
The host of “GMA” has just revealed a secret … this one Jeff Bezos gave him a ring not too long ago and invited him to hitchhike in space aboard the Amazon founder’s Blue Origin rocket.
Michael says it took about a nanosecond to say yes … after being super inspired to have been around for a previous launch.
Here’s the thing about Bezos – he’s like one of the best PR guys in PR even though he’s not really in PR. He uses all the tricks in the book to distract from Elon musk and Richard branson. This time … Bezos’ rocket makes the daughter of Alain shepard – the first American to have ventured into space – and a father / son duo. And, of course, there is Michael.
Strahan will take off on December 9 and there is a lot of practice to do. He says he’s heading to the Blue Origin facility for a week and a half of training. So far, he has only met his teammates through Zoom.
I didn’t know it, but apparently the Blue Origin astronauts get some kind of allowance. Strahan donates his to the Boys & Girls Club.
Speaking of $$$ … MS didn’t say it, but we’re assuming he’s entitled to a free spin.
Bezos, as you know, has flown in his rocket before, just like William shatner. So who’s next … Oprah? Call, Jeff!
