The mains are out. #NS22 is now descending back to Launch Site One at a smooth 16 mph / 26 km/h.

Edit to add: clearly audible on the webcast

New Shepard/NS-22: Crew cabin chatter after parachute deploy: "We're not going to die!" (laughter)... "Oh my gosh"

Coby Cotton yelling "we're not going to die!" after the main parachutes deployed was hilarious.

Blue Origin Successfully Completes 22nd Mission to Space

Today, Blue Origin successfully completed its sixth human spaceflight and the 22nd flight for the New Shepard program. The astronaut crew included: Coby Cotton, Mário Ferreira, Vanessa O’Brien, Clint Kelly III, Sara Sabry, and Steve Young. 

The crew achieved three historic firsts:

Sara Sabry became the first person from Egypt to fly to space.

Vanessa O’Brien became the first woman to reach extremes on land (Mt. Everest), sea (Challenger Deep), and air (pass the Kármán line), completing the Explorers’ Extreme Trifecta, a Guinness World Record. 

Mário Ferreira became the first person from Portugal to fly to space.

“It’s an honor for our team to provide our customers with a life-changing shift in perspective of our fragile planet,” said Phil Joyce, Senior Vice President, New Shepard. “It's been just over a year since New Shepard’s first human flight, and we have now flown 31 humans above the Kármán line. Thank you to these early pioneers in helping us realize our vision of millions of people living and working in space for the benefit of Earth.”

If you’re interested in flying on New Shepard as an astronaut or flying a payload on a future mission, visit BlueOrigin.com. You can also purchase commemorative merchandise from today’s mission at the Blue Origin Shop.

How many people are watching these launches now? Smooth operation is good, but is there much "Space" excitement left around NS?

A simple check shows that at least 2,700 people tuned in to watch the webcast. More will watch over the coming hours and days.

I've updated my New Shepard capsule touchdown position map to include NS-22.
You can view it here :) https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit?mid=1rVNJphDWfkNr25PvGNp8p5ekijpspaf0&usp=sharing
It can be really hard to interpret satellite imagery! Local knowledge & an understanding of an area’s history are crucial pieces of the puzzle.

Totally different question - why hasn't Blue reset their launch number?
Most all of the NS launches were test stuff, why not reset the number at zero for operational/crewed flights?
