This year is going to be another milestone that SpaceX will move to a better future. In conjunction with SpaceX, billionaire Jared Isaacman is expected to command a Crew Dragon spaceflight. This primary mission will happen in late 2021. As a sign of his excitement for the new venture, Jared is donating three seats in support of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The tech billionaire entrepreneur has chartered a trip to the Earth orbit in conjunction with Elon Musk’s company. His career as an accomplished pilot will come to hand during the launch since he will command the spaceflight. On 1st February, SpaceX brought about this announcement where they explained that Jared would be controlling a four-person Crew Dragon spaceflight. Also, it is crucial to know that there will be no professional astronauts aboard.
On the same day, multi-billionaire Elon Musk stated that the mission is one in history. It will become the first all-private orbital mission. The company will use the Inspiration4 spacecraft, whose first mission was under NASA. This launch is expected to happen in late 2021 and will launch from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Florida.
This spacecraft will spend the first two to four days after flight circling the earth. Later, it will land for an ocean splashdown. Musk also went ahead to explain that most of the details of the mission are still up for discussion not to mention that most of the details depend on the taste and preferences of Jared Isaacman.
Inspiration4 spacecraft design is special and unique. Why not, when its design is an inspiration to the masses to reach out for the stars. Also, it serves as an aide to raise money for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. When questioned about his decision to venture into this mission, Jared explained how the mission is a dream and a step towards the future. The mission’s primary goal is to motivate people to venture and explore the stars.
In Jared’s statement, it is clear that he is taking these new responsibilities positively as a way of inspiring humanity. Two of the seats in the spacecraft will go to St. Jude Research Center. One of them to an employee while the other to one member of the public via fundraising. With this fundraising, the Research center is hoping to amass at least $200 million.
