The mission was inspired and organized by the American billionaire Jared Isaacman who himself undertook its cost. He wanted to make a trip to Space with ordinary citizens and not astronauts.


At the same time, he wanted to pass on a social message by announcing that his fellow passengers would be selected through various sweepstakes procedures that would be part of a campaign to raise $200 million for st. Jude Children’s Hospital.

From this campaign emerged the three people who will accompany the entrepreneur on the trip. One crew member is Sian Proctor, a professor of Geoscience at South Mountain Community College in Phoenix, Arizona. The second member is Chris Sembroski, a former U.S. air force pilot and worker in the aerospace industry.

The team is complemented by Hayley Arceneaux, who works as an assistant in a doctor’s office and she was treated as a child with a serious health problem at St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
