Fulfilling a lifelong mission to become an astronaut, Wally Funk will fly to space on New Shepard’s first human flight on July 20 as an honored guest.

She will join Jeff Bezos, his brother Mark Bezos, and the auction winner on the flight.

Wally’s journey to space began in the 1960s when she was the youngest graduate of the Woman in Space Program, a privately-funded project which tested female pilots for astronaut fitness.

Later known as the “Mercury 13” – thirteen American women successfully underwent the same physiological and psychological screening tests as the astronauts selected by NASA for Project Mercury, but they never flew to space. 

Wally was the youngest graduate of this program.

She was the first female FAA inspector and first female NTSB air safety investigator.

The 82-year-old pilot will now be part of the first crew on New Shepard, and the oldest person ever to fly to space.

Wally Funk outlines her history as a member of the Mercury 13 - the pilots and first women to pass astronaut tests in the United States in 1960-61.

In 1961, Wally Funk was among the Mercury 13, the first group of American pilots to pass the Woman in Space programme.

Wally sailed through a series of rigorous physical and mental tests, with one of her scores beating all the male Mercury 7 astronauts’, including John Glenn’s, the first American in orbit.

But just one week before the final phase of training, the programme was abruptly cancelled.

A combination of politics and prejudice meant that none of the women ever flew into space. Undeterred, Wally went on to become America’s first female aviation safety inspector, though her dream of being an astronaut never dimmed.

I’m so pleased for her. She’s beaming from the inside

That right there is true happiness. Reckon she will make the Guinness book of World Records?

Good for you Wally

& I hope she will wear a red and white stripy beanie so when she’s up there, we can spot her
