TODAY a Historic all-civilian $200 million dollar SpaceX flight to earth orbit for a 3 day trip around the earth, at 100 miles past the international space station, launches tonight at 8pm ET / 5pm PT. Watch online as they webcast it on Space.com and YouTube. Maybe they’ll phone-video some UFOs while up there… 🤞
The flight is chartered and lead by billionaire Jared Isaacman, a 38-year-old billionaire who dropped out of school at 16 to start his internet company Shift4 Payments. He is also an aviation enthusiasts who is qualified to fly military fighter jets. He chose a cancer survivor, a St Jude donor, and an entrepreneur as the other 3 people on the 4 person mission to space, and he is raising money for St Jude’s hospital where he has already raised and donated over a hundred million and hopes to double it. There is also a new feature with the nose cone opening to have a 360 degree viewing dome window, which replaces what would be the docking door (not docking with ISS). Pretty cool!
This should be an amazing and inspiring event for people all over the world to see a high school dropout and a cancer survivor become astronauts and fulfill their dreams after their own already incredible accomplishments. Big props and best of luck to these incredible Star People. Don’t miss the webcast tonight!
