And let’s get started!
According to Musk, the Polaris Dawn’s astronauts have a challenging journey ahead of them.
After launching no earlier than December 2022, the four crew members of Polaris Dawn intend to execute the first commercial spacewalk while once again raising money for St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis.
Jared Isaacman, a billionaire and astronaut for Inspiration4, paid for all four seats on SpaceX’s Crew Dragon for both that mission and the upcoming voyage. While in orbit last year, he and the other Inspiration4 astronauts donated $250 million for St. Jude.
So, let’s meet the crew with their mini-biographies.
Jared Isaacman, Polaris Dawn commander
Spaceflight veteran Jared Isaacman, 38, led the SpaceX Inspiration4 mission that launched to Earth orbit in September 2021. As the founder and CEO of Shift4 Payments, he earned a billion dollars, which he used to pay for the trip.
He has about 6,000 hours of flight experience, and in addition to his business activities, he has done piloting responsibilities such as a fast-paced world circumnavigation, air shows, and running a jet pilot instruction company (Draken International).
The first two in a planned series of flights that Isaacman will take with various crews are Inspiration4 and Polaris Dawn. Isaacman told the Washington Post that he hopes the upcoming missions will be similarly helpful to humanity as Inspiration4, which was primarily focused on raising money for charity and raised $240 million for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis over several months.
He stated that he would only agree to participate in the extra flights if they “serve the larger objective of opening up space for everyone and making humankind a multiplanetary species and, ideally, have a benefit for the things we’re trying to accomplish back here on Earth.”
Polaris Dawn mission pilot Scott Poteet
According to his Polaris Dawn biography, Scott “Kidd” Poteet, age unknown, is a retired United States Air Force (USAF) Lieutenant Colonel and a pilot with more than 3,200 flight hours in a variety of aircraft, including the F-16, A-4, T-38, T-37, T-3, and Alpha Jet. He has also participated in the operations Northern Watch, Southern Watch, Joint Guardian, Freedom’s Sentinel, and Resolute Support for more than 400 hours.
During the course of his 20 years of service, he held a number of top positions with the Air Force, including commander of the 64th Aggressor Squadron, USAF Thunderbird No. 4 display pilot, operational test and evaluation pilot, and flight examiner.
Poteet joins the mission as Isaacman’s long-time associate. He served as vice president of strategy at Shift4 and director of business development at Draken International, both of which are owned by Isaacman (although Isaacman no longer owns Draken). Poteet served as Inspiration4’s mission director as well.
