Michael Strahan, a former NFL great, is officially shooting off into space. Strahan revealed on Tuesday’s “Good Morning America” that he will be one of six passengers accompanying Jeff Bezos on the Blue Origin journey to space on December 9.
He revealed that as an honored guest, he has already started preparations for the journey and plans to fly to Western Texas for further training. He also claimed that he got fitted for his flying suit and tried the seats to ensure that he fit.
On Tuesday morning, Strahan said, “Blue Origin contacted me and asked if I wanted to be a crew member.” “I said yes without hesitation. “Strahan will embark on Blue Origin’s third crewed voyage to space this year on Dec. 9 at 9:30 a.m. CT. Blue Origin will fill all six seats on its rocket and capsule for the first time, while prior journeys beyond the atmosphere only filled four seats.
When asked why he wanted to go to space, Strahan said, “I wanted to go to space.” “Being there at the initial launch was just incredible… and I simply wanted to be a part of it. The first aircraft I witnessed captivated me completely.”
Strahan’s professional career has continued.
Strahan has continued his professional career as a television co-anchor for Good Morning America after leaving the NFL after 15 seasons with the Giants. Strahan will earn a salary as an honorary crew member, which will be given to The Boys and Girls Club, according to ABC.
“You truly feel like you’re part of a fantastic team when you see the eagerness to accomplish this, to come together,” Strahan remarked.
Michael is overjoyed and appreciative of the chance.
It was revealed back in September that his jersey will be retired.
This remarkable feat was celebrated on GMA with a pleasant surprise for the celebrity live on air. Michael’s old teammates rushed into the studio, all wearing his signature 92 jerseys, much to his joy.
“I realized what was going on because they would never wear my jersey unless they didn’t love me that much,” he remarked at the time.
Michael is also the father of four children, two of which are adolescent twins (pictured above)
“I’ll tell you this: it wouldn’t have been possible without these three; they were all crucial to my professional success. I know Eli Manning’s jersey will be retired as well.”
“I carried all three of these people throughout their careers, so that works out well!” he laughed afterward.

A Major Project Has Just Been Announced.
Michael’s clothing, which consisted of a patterned collared shirt and salmon pink shorts, was highlighted in the 20-second sample. He said, “I’m over here at a shooting for the new collection.” “We have some new fashions, such as the one I’m wearing right now. I’m all set to go to Miami!”
Michael, it turns out, uploaded the Instagram Reel on his official Michael Strahan Brand Instagram profile on March 8, while he wasn’t on GMA. Although it’s possible that this was the reason for his absence from GMA, nothing has been proven.
Regardless, the Texas native is accustomed to a busy schedule because of his several apparel businesses, which include Collection by Michael Strahan at JCPenney, MSX by Michael Strahan, and MSX by Michael Strahan for NFL (which is sold at several retailers).
Michael not only appears on GMA but also hosts the game program The $100,000 Pyramid and contributes his analysis to Fox’s NFL coverage. He also appeared in the ESPN+ series More Than an Athlete lately. Despite this, he always finds time to return to GMA to provide viewers with the latest news and his unique insight.
