NIFA Congratulates Wally Funk on Going to Space

Wally Funk

Congratulations to Wally Funk, longtime NIFA judge, on being selected to accompany Jeff Bezos on Blue Origin’s first crewed flight to space this month.

“Jeff Bezos announced in an Instagram post Thursday that Funk would be joining him, his brother, Mark, and the unnamed winner of an auction aboard Blue Origin’s first crewed spaceflight on July 20, the anniversary of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969.”
