The 10-minute flight, five minutes less than Alan Shepard 's 1961 Mercury flight, will take off from Texas with six people on board, two more than the previous two flights this year with humans on board.
Similar to esprevious courses, Strahan's flight will likely include about three minutes of weightlessness and a view of the curvature of the Earth. Passengers are subjected to nearly 6 G, or six times the force of Earth's gravity, as the capsule descends.
Strahan, who is now co-host of Good Morning America, made the announcement on Tuesday's show.
"I want to go to space " said Strahan at GMA. "I think being there on the first launch was really mind blowing.
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and the star by Star Trek William Shatner flew into space on separate New Shepard flights this year. Shatner has become the oldest person in space, eclipsing by eight years the previous record set by a passenger on the Bezos flight in July.
Virgin Galactic 's Richard Branson went to space in his own rocket in July, followed by Bezos nine days later on Blue Origin ' s first flight. with a crew. Elon Musk's SpaceX made its first private trip in mid-September, but without Musk on board.
