Inspiration 4 Crew Finalized

In February of this year, we told you about Hayley Arceneaux, a 29 year old cancer survivor who was headed to space. The mission, named Inspiration 4, will send 4 civilians into space aboard a SpaceX Dragon capsule.

Hayley was the second person selected for the mission alongside billionaire Jared Issacman – who started the project. The third and fourth crew members were announced over the weekend: Chris Sembroski and Dr. Sian Proctor.

The foursome, shown above, will head into space, orbit for approximately 3 days, then return to Earth splashing down off the coast of Florida. The launch was originally planned for October, but SpaceX believes it could happen as early as mid-September. Stay tuned for more on Inspiration 4.
