On December 11th, a Blue Origin flight will be making a journey to space. Aboard it will be Laura Shepard, who is the daughter of the first American to fly to space, Alan Shepard. But given this is a furry news site, one of the paying passengers has piqued more interest within fandom circles. Cameron “MeepsKitten” Bess, a modest furry content creator of around 2,500 subscribers on YouTube, Twitch, and Twitter, will be riding aboard with his father, Lane Bess.
The video "I'm Going to Space" on MeepsKitten’s YouTube channel shows how he is both excited and anxious about this opportunity. He discusses how he plans to bring the paw of his fursuit along with a pansexual flag, which is his sexual identity, with him on the spaceflight.
Update: Due to high winds forecast, the flight has been delayed from December 9th to December 11th.

What happens when an outgoing fursuiting feline is stuck indoors with a copy of VRChat, Unity, and hours of time on his hands? He builds VRChat worlds of course. In his ever growing interest in VRChat worlds, Coopertom, decided to bring his building skills into the trashy alleyways of one infamous location: Four Seasons Landscaping of Philadelphia.
Because of its renowned, this VR World caught the attention of Buzzfeed and other news outlets and was featured on Twitter’s “What’s Happening” page, along with having tens of thousand of engagements.
Ha ha ha OMG! The grand debut of Four Seasons Total Landscaping was AMAZING! Thank you to everyone who showed up! pic.twitter.com/2c5KQKQwgC— coopertom (@thecoopertom) November 9, 2020
