Nashville, TN doctor to go to space on Blue Origin flight | Space

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Nashville is home to a lot of things like country music, hot chicken, honkey-tonks, but soon, a new name will be on that list: an astronaut.

Eiman Jahangir, of Nashville, won a seat on a future Blue Origin New Shepard launch, a dream he said has been decades in the making.

“To actually get the call, and say ‘you are going to space,’ I mean it’s still mind-blowing,” said Jahangir.

The trip is made possible through MoonDAO – a group of space enthusiasts on a mission to send more people to space.

“The exciting part of the modern era of space, is that more and more opportunities are rising,” Jahangir told News 2.

This is the second time MoonDAO has sent someone to space, possibly marking Nashville’s first.

“I think [I’m the] first MNPS Grad, I don’t know, but I think that’s right,” said Jahangir.

Born in Iran, Jahangir immigrated to Nashville at the age of four. The now 43-year-old discovered his love for space while serving at the Adventure Science Center in Nashville.

“By giving them [students] a place to think and imagine like, then it allows those thoughts and dreams to grow,” said Jahangir.

All these years…
