‘I Wanna Go Back’ Michael Strahan Describes Trip To Space

The ‘Good Morning America’ host touched back down to earth.

Michael Strahan just got to experience what only few have: a trip into space.

After flying to the edge of space via Jeff Bazos’ Blue Origin company, the Good Morning America host said he wants to make a return.

"I wanna go back," he told people on the ground after returning to the Earth’s surface according to CNN. "You got to get that perspective.”

Strahan went on to describe the darkness he experienced during the 10-minute flight.

"The Gs — it's not a facelift; it's a face drop,” he joked about G-force. “I know what I'm going to look like at 85.”

Strahan blasted off accompanied by space industry executive Dylan Taylor, investor Evan Dick, venture capitalist Lane Bess, his son Cameron Bess and Laura Shepard Churchley, the eldest daughter of late legendary U.S. astronaut Alan Shepard, who became the first American to fly to space in 1961.

CNBC reports the capsule was launched from Blue Origin’s private facility in West Texas and accelerated to more than three times the speed of sound to pass beyond the 50-mile boundary that the U.S. uses to mark the edge of space.

The vessel reached above 340,000 feet altitude before returning to Earth minutes later.
