Technical issues delayed launch

Originally, Blue Origin’s fifth manned flight was scheduled for May 20. Victor and his wife, Marcella Diniz Hespanha, left for the United States on the 15th and stayed at the company dos Villa Astrontas in El Paso, about 120 miles (195 km) from the launch site.

In the caravan he was in, the Brazilian was given several “treats” from Blue Origin, such as a personal bag, several shirts and chocolates.

The next day he met with the rest of the crew. The Brazilian wrote on Instagram, “I’ve really enjoyed getting to know each of them and we’ve been really good since the first contact.”

Training was scheduled to begin between the 17th and 18th, but was postponed because the company had identified a technical problem with the spacecraft and had chosen to suspend the launch.

“While checking our last vehicle, we noticed that one of New Shepard’s back-up systems did not meet our performance expectations. Due to extreme caution, we will delay the launch of the NS-21 scheduled for Friday. Stay tuned for more updates, ”read Blue Origin’s statement on Twitter, also posted on the company’s website.

Three days later, Victor revealed that he had been instructed to return to Brazil and wait for another call, ten days later last Monday (31) when Blue Origin announced the date of the new flight.

On Thursday (2), the Brazilian posted a video on his Instagram page showing how the training started, showing the badge he received from the company and introducing benefits for his followers.

In the story, Victor shares how the first day of training went. “Today we have learned simulation, security tests and more technical terms in the capsule. I’m very excited. The capsule inside is incredible, the seat is comfortable, everything is impeccable. Preparations are underway this Friday (3), ahead of the long-awaited flight.

Every space mission has a tradition, whether tourist or scientific, that allows crew members to choose the personal items of their choice for the trip. The exercise dates back to the beginning of space missions, when astronauts on the Mercury program began carrying small objects on their flight.

Victor is still a mystery about the object taken into space, but he highlights one of them: the Brazilian flag. “I accept things that make sense to me and I accept things that are suggested. A
