As SpaceX continues to complete one successful launch after another, all eyes are on Elon Musk to see when he will make good on his promise of bringing down the otherwise exorbitant cost of consumer interstellar travel. It’s proving to be quite the tall order; however, that’s not to say that it’s an impossible aspiration.
On the contrary — as part of the upcoming Inspiration4 raffle, you could land a sport aboard the first all-civilian SpaceX mission. And the best part is — a ticket costs just $10. Led by the record-setting pilot and Shift4 Payments founder Jared Isaacman, the flight will orbit the Earth for anywhere from two to four days before splashing down off the Florida coastline in the same zones used by NASA’s Commercial Crew Missions. As part of the experience, the winner will undergo an intensive astronaut training camp, spanning everything from emergency preparedness and spacesuit exercises to orbital mechanics and microgravity mission simulations. All proceeds will go to St. Jude, with Isaacman having already pledged $100M in personal donations. You can enter at the link below and expect an announcement of the winner in early March.
