Former NFL star-turned-TV personality Michael Strahan announced Tuesday that he is going to space.

The Super Bowl champion is set to lift during Blue Origin’s Dec. 9 launch, he said.

“I wanted to go to space. I think being there at the first launch was just mind-blowing,” Strahan said. “I just wanted to be a part of it.”

Strahan stands over 6 feet tall and required a special space suit to be made, according to a report.
