Pakistan’s flag taken to space by Venessa, the first woman to reach extremes on land, sea, and air

Global explorer and Pakistan’s honorary goodwill ambassador Vanessa O’Brien has recently taken Pakistan’s flag to space when she accompanied five other space participants on Blue Origin’s NS-22 that passed the Karman line into outer space and reached an apogee of 351,232 feet MSL (107km), says a press release.

Her max ascent velocity hit 3,603 km/h, hitting 5.2 max g-forces before parachutes were deployed to slow down the crew capsule for landing.

The flight makes Vanessa O’Brien the first woman to reach extremes on land, sea, and air — her sixth Guinness World Record — thereby completing the Explorer’s Trifecta.

O’Brien carried Pakistan’s flag during each of these extreme endeavours over five years, to the summit of K2 in 2017, then 10,925 metres deep (to the bottom of the Marianas Trench) in 2020, and now to Space (passing the Karman line to 107km) in 2022.
