Blue Origin is the aerospace manufacturer owned by Amazon's Jeff Bezos. The New Shepard rocket has already launched into space this year, with Bezos and William Shatner being among the people to take to the sky.
Strahan said Bezos called him to personally invite him on the latest mission, which will also include the daughter of astronaut Alan Shepard, the first American to travel into space.
