Billionaire and jet pilot Jared Isaacman , 37, will finance and lead the all-civilian voyage, which he will use to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. Isaacman has already paid for a Super Bowl ad to tout the mission later this month. The journey is one of several tourism ventures that Musk has on the go at SpaceX. Three businessmen will pay million each to visit the International Space Station (ISS) via a Dragon capsule next January, and Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa is scheduled to fly to the moon on board SpaceX’s BFR rocket in 2023.

By the end of the year, Jared Isaacman, a young American billionaire keen on piloting and passionate about space exploration , should revolve around the Earth at the controls of a space mission entirely composed of "tourists", thanks to a Falcon 9 rocket from SpaceX chartered at its expense.

Called Inspiration4, the mission will be the first of its kind to send only "civilians" into space, without any professional astronaut to support them, he emphasizes. "This is the first step towards a world where everyone can travel in the stars," enthuses Jared Isaacman, smiling from ear to ear as he explains his project to AFP in front of SpaceX's headquarters in Hawthorne, in the suburb of Los Angeles.

Billionaire Jared Isaacman , the CEO of Shift4 Payments, bought the spaceflight and will command it when it takes off in the fourth quarter of 2021. Isaacman is donating the three other seats “to crew members who will be selected to represent the mission pillars of leadership, hope, generosity and prosperity,” SpaceX stated in a press release. Called Inspiration4, the mission is aimed at raising 0million for St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

SpaceX plans to carry out a first-of-its-kind exclusively commercial space mission by the end of the year.

"What is undoubtedly most exciting about this mission is that we open the selection process to people like the others. today and who do not realize that, in thirty days, they will be preparing to put on a space suit ", launches the billionaire of 37 years.

The idea is to have "a crew that reflects the key values ​​of this mission". The first seat, that of "hope", will therefore go to a woman who survived cancer as a child after being treated at the St Jude Foundation hospital, specializing in childhood illnesses.

SpaceX plans to launch tech entrepreneur Jared Isaacman and three others on a multiday journey in orbit around the Earth as early as this year. As SpaceX began work on its Starship Mars spacecraft, it developed strong interest in paying for that project by offering space tourism . It already has competition in that sphere: Multiple companies have begun accepting down payments for tourist flights, and British billionaire Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic has flown test pilots and a staff member to suborbital space .

Jared Isaacman of Shift4 today announced plans for the world’s first all-civilian mission to space - named Inspiration4 - from SpaceX’s headquarters. The mission is being targeted for the fourth quarter of this year and will be commanded by Jared Isaacman , the 37-year-old founder and chief executive officer of Shift4 Payments (NYSE:FOUR) and an accomplished pilot. Named Inspiration4 in recognition of the four-person crew’s mission to inspire support for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® and send a humanitarian message of possibility, the journey represents a new era for

As part of his space project, Jared Isaacman is organizing a fundraiser for this foundation and it is to a donor who will be drawn that the seat of "generosity" will go. The billionaire announced that he would give his side 100 million dollars to St Jude, which is in addition to the sum - confidential - that he pays to finance the mission.

The last seat, which symbolizes "prosperity", will be awarded to a person wishing to start a business and able to explain "how it will change the world".

The competition is open to residents of the United States over the age of 18 but does not require unusual physical or technical skills, insists Isaacman.

Elon Musk, the boss of SpaceX, "said it yesterday, if you're able to go on a roller coaster that really shakes a lot, you should be able to fly in the Dragon capsule," laughs he.

The NASA astronaut selection process is so selective "that you are more likely to be struck by lightning" than to be selected, but that is not the case here, insists the "chef de mission" .

The mission is slated to last for several days, and space tourists won't just watch the landscape spinning in low orbit around Earth every 90 minutes. “We intend to spend a lot of time working on experiments,” on behalf of St Jude or other organizations, he explains.

At the end of the mission, the capsule will enter the atmosphere for a landing off the coast of Florida.

Jared Isaacman does not then rule out sending other tourists into space: "If successful, there will be an incredible number of people who will seize the opportunity to fly away and explore the stars!"
