A number of records are about to be shattered, including a new glass ceiling. Wally Funk is an 82 year old woman who was part of NASA’s Mercury 13, a group of women destined to join the NASA program. At 82, she’s about to join Jeff Bezos in Space. Her history includes first female FAA inspector, and first female NTSB inspector. She’s got 19,600 flight hours, and taught over 3,000 people to fly, and will now be the oldest person to reach space. ROCK AND ROLL!!!

At 82, the “Mercury 13” pioneer is poised to become the oldest person to reach space when the first crewed Blue Origin rocket takes flight this month.
