On Saturday (Dec. 11) Bess, the son of millionaire venture investor Lane Bess, was aboard Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin New Shepard (NS-19) mission.

The social media star was part of six other passengers including his father, Good Morning America co-host Michael Strahan, Voyager Space chairman Dylan Taylor, investment banker Evan Dick, and Laura Shepard Churchley, the daughter of Alan Shepard who was the first American to go into space in the 1960s.

Ahead of the flight, Bess, who streams online under the Twitch username MeepsKitten, reflected on his opportunity to go into space. “My entire life I’ve wanted to make people who feel like they didn’t have a place feel welcome,” he told Xtra.
