|SPACEX TO LAUNCH BILLIONAIRE BUSINESSMAN INTO SPACE ON FIRST EVER ENTIRELY CIVILIAN SPACEFLIGHT – AND OFFERS TICKET TO LUCKY MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC|
SpaceX is to launch the first ever entirely commercial trip to space later this year – and take a lucky member of the public on the trip.
The journey has been commissioned by Jared Iaacman, a US billionaire who made his fortune in tech and fighter jets and says he has been a space geek since he was a child. It is not clear how much he has paid for the journey.
But he has already offered three tickets to other members of the public. One of them will go to a healthcare worker from St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, who has already been selected for the mission, and another will go to a business owner who uses Shift4 payments, the credit card processing company that helped make Mr Isaacman rich.
And the fourth will be part of the plan to use the mission to raise $200 million for St Jude. Anyone who donates to the hospital during February will be entered into a lottery to win that seat.
