Harding was supposed to travel to the edge of space along with five other customer astronauts.

During the final vehicle checks

it was apparently observed that one of New Shepard's back-up systems was not meeting the expectations for performance.

New Shepard is a fully reusable

 rocket manufactured by Blue Origin for space tourism. It has apparently made 15 uncrewed test launches.

In an abundance of caution

Blue Origin announced that the launch of NS-21 originally scheduled for Friday has been postponed.

Jeff Bezos’ aerospace company
