Hmm really thought that would link to the time stamp

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.

See the difference on this picture : https://twitter.com/thesheetztweetz/status/1349757600771006470/photo/1

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?

Here's some screen captures from the Twitter video.

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!

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 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:

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)

Sorry for the bump, but...

As a member of the furry fandom, I approve of Cameron Bess (Meeps Kitten) being the first furry in space.
