The company of Harding, named Action Aviation, deals in purchasing and selling business jets. He acquired his nascent World Record about two and a half years ago for the fastest circumnavigation of the Earth through both poles in a Gulfstream 650ER business jet.

It is said that each astronaut onboard NS-21 will have a postcard to space on behalf of the Blue Origins foundation, which is the Club of the Future.

These postcards to Space program provides students with an access to space on Blue Origin’s rockets. The mission of the club is to inspire future generations to take careers in STEM for the betterment of Earth.
