  How many free flights is BO giving out? Seems that best way to keep media attention focused on suborbital circus ride is to comp a ticket for a media (preferably TV news) personality on each launch. Another seat for a flight heritage personality doesn't hurt either.
  Yes, this is a curmudgeonly observation. Mods delete if needed.

 Good Luck! But how are they even going to have room to float about in there? Six people, and one that is as big as Mike? !!! Should be fun though. :)

I've been in one of the capsule with five other people when they brought one to Oshkosh.  I found it to be very crowded and cramped when we were all standing (For perspective I am tallerr than Michael Strahan).  Their maneuvers while floating are going to be tight and probably are not going to be to do too much moving across the cabin.  I suspect they will mostly have to stay close to their own seat. But hopefully the cabin video will be released and we will see.

Current record is 16 (Unity-22) but that point will be moot tomorrow.

Current record is 16 (Unity-22) but that point will be moot tomorrow.

Here is another little stat.

I was looking at the list of all human beings who have ever been to space (as defined by passing the Karman Line at 100km).  Since the retirement of the Space Shuttle, the number of new people per calendar year passing the Karman Line who have never been to space before has been:

2012 - 5
2013 - 6
2014 - 5
2015 - 5
2016 - 6
2017 - 4
2018 - 4
2019 - 5
2020 - 3

What a difference a year makes.  As of December 10, 2021, the number of NEW people who have passed the Karman Line in this calendar year is:

2021 - 22

And NS-9 will make it 28.

Looks like no live video from inside the capsule - which I understand, if I were a passenger I don't think I would want to be livestreamed to the world, either. Still, I was hoping to get a better idea of exactly how crowded the capsule was with 6 passengers - it seemed a bit crowded with only 4 in the past.

Did someone caught Booster number ? I presume it's 4 like other crewed flights, but this time I haven't seen close-ups on this number.

Thanks ! Nearly erased...  ;)

Frustratingly, when the forum software embeds YouTube videos it breaks time stamps.
One workaround is to use the long-form youtube.com/watch?... link without the leading "www." to suppress embedding.
So your 1:54:10 link showing the booster's "4" tail number would be either:
  https://youtube.com/watch?v=MpaiuDg_DN4&t=1h54m11s
Or:
  https://youtube.com/watch?v=MpaiuDg_DN4&t=6851

(Now if only I could learn a way to suppress the embedding of tweets!)

Not the good number : the "4" you're speaking of is the number of the tail on the booster (see seconds earlier, we also see tail number 3), not the number of the booster.
It's on the booster itself, not on the tail.

Oops.  I assume you are seeing the booster's barely legible "4", given your "Nearly erased..." comment, but I can't make it out.  Where is it?

Why are the crew members wearing ear plugs?

Is it mandatory because of the noise of the ascent and/or reentry?

They could be wireless earpieces so that they can clearly hear communications from the ground.

The parent child claim needs to be modified to in space at the "same time".  Owen and Richard Garriott father and son had both been to space before just not at the same time.  Alan Shepherd and now his daughter also qualify as parent and child in space just not at the same time.

See this image : https://pbs.twimg.com/media/ErtNX4jXEAA8dQ0?format=png&name=small

At the very top of the picture, middle of the width. On the rounded section. There is a "4" in a square, nearly erased  ;)

This is the booster tail number, which couldn't be seen on yesterday's webcast because cam angle was changed.

But all previous crewed flights used tail 4 booster when all uncrewed flights used tail 3 booster, so I think it's surely tail 4 booster again this time.

Thank you.  I see it now.

But I think *that* "4" is the leg number.  Ha!
Richard Kruse's Historic Spacecraft website has some photos of a New Shepard booster at the 2017 EAA AirVenture Oshkosh at: https://historicspacecraft.com/Commercial.html
I don't know what serial booster that is, but you can see leg numbers 2 and 3, to the right of fins 2 and 3, in several of the photos.  None are super clear, but perhaps the best are:
  Leg and fin 2: https://historicspacecraft.com/Photos/Rockets/New_Shepard_OSH2017RK_07.jpg
  Leg and fin 3: https://historicspacecraft.com/Photos/Rockets/New_Shepard_OSH2017RK_10.jpg
Wikipedia has a clearer photo of leg and fin 2 from the same event:
  https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/5d/New_Shephard_-_Upright_View.jpg

Do we know if the hull number is labeled anywhere on the booster?

Oh yes, I think you're right about legs. Good catch !

Don't have answer to your final question, sorry.

That also doesn't make sense because even in 2015 with Mission 8 the booster that was known as SN2 had the booster itself labeled as 4. So I don't know what's happening here

Awesome footage. This is the first time I've seen an entire crewed New Shepard mission inside the capsule itself.

Agreed! And it makes the capsule seem a lot less cramped than some other views suggested. Still not large by any means, but there is room for a flat window seat for everyone.   8)
