The Chairman of Action Aviation, Hamish Harding and a long-term resident of Dubai, will persist in his mission to investigate the most undiscovered places on earth as part of the crew on a flight of Blue Origin’s NS-21 into space.

The suborbital flight that will be carrying six people, including him, was supposed to take off earlier on May 20 but got delayed because of technical reasons.

The journey to space follows many other Guinness World Record missions for Harding, including the lengthiest duration spent at Full Ocean Depth as well as the longest distance travelled at Full Ocean Depth when he challenged the Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench in a two-person submersible which is 36,000 feet (11,000 meters) deep.

Captain Harding has also led a One More Orbit Mission that acquired the record for the fastest circumnavigation of the earth through both poles in a Gulfstream G650ER (46 hours, 40 minutes).

Harding is the Chairman of the Middle East Chapter of The Explorers Club, which is an international organisation discovered in New York in 1204, dedicated to the advancement of scientific enquiry and field exploration.

Recently, he has also launched the One More Orbit Foundation to motivate and sponsor the explorers of tomorrow to acquire the impossible via educational outreach in Science, Technology, Art, Engineering and Mathematics (STEAM).

Harding will also be part of a six-person crew on the fifth human flight for the Blue Origin’s New Shepard programme.

Harding will have a postcard to space on behalf of Blue Origin’s Foundation, Club for the Future, as part of his mission. The foundation’s mission is to encourage future generations to follow careers in STEM and help create the future of life in space.
