“The Reason I Started Space X Was To Get Humanity To Mars & Ultimately Making Science Fiction Not Fiction Forever.”
The mind behind that thought process has a vision so deep into the future he’s not thinking of himself at all he’s concerned for the humans that follow after him. That is such a selfless way to think and act. SpaceX is set to make history by launching four civilians into space, no astronauts are allowed on this flight.
The story behind this is so cool it had to be documented and is currently streaming on Netflix. The story of Jared Isaacman a 38-year-old billionaire high school dropout who is raising $200 million for St. Jude Children Research Hospital. My man even put up the first $100 million himself, talk about giving back. Jared will be leading three other humans into space for a three-day voyage.
Check out the Netflix trailer below to see a glimpse of how dope this doc looks and meet the four civilians who will be traveling further into space than anyone since NASA had to fix ‘The Hubbel Telescope.’ IMUer’s watch both videos to learn more about this historical journey into space, leave us your comments below, and please be sure to subscribe in the top right corner.
Leadership, Hope, Generosity, & Prosperity
Isaacman will fill the Leadership seat. The other three crew members are;
- Hayley Arceneaux, 29, who is riding in the Hope seat, is a physician assistant at St. Jude, where she was treated for bone cancer as a child. “It’s an incredible honor to be a part of this mission that is not only raising crucial funds for the lifesaving work of St. Jude but also introducing new supporters to the cause and showing cancer survivors that anything is possible,” she said.
- Chris Sembroski, a 42-year-old data engineer for Lockheed Martin, will ride in the Generosity seat. Sembroski won his seat via a raffle among contributors to St. Jude. He is an Air Force veteran, has a B.S. degree in professional aeronautics from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and is a self-described space junkie. His wife’s thoughts on meeting him for the first time? “Nerd alert,” she said. “Joining the Inspiration4 crew and its mission of support for St. Jude is truly a dream come true,” Sembroski said.
- Sian Proctor, 51, the daughter of an Apollo-era NASA worker, will ride in the Prosperity seat, awarded to an entrepreneur based on short videos posted to Twitter. An analog astronaut (a person who conducts activities in simulated space
- conditions), Proctor combines art and poetry at her Space2Inspire website to encourage a “Just, Equitable, Diverse, and Inclusive space (J.E.D.I. space) for all of humanity.” She has a Ph.D. in science education and was a finalist to become a NASA astronaut. “Going to space has always been a dream of mine and being able to inspire the world through art and poetry makes it even more special for me,” she said. She will be just the fourth Black woman to travel to space.
