Elon muskhands over the keys to a SpaceX rocket to Jared isaacman – a billionaire himself, and pilot preparing to lead the very first all-civilian space flight.
Jared joined us on “TMZ Live” on Tuesday and told us all about the historic mission set to take off in October and what he most expects once he and 3 other civilians are in orbit.
Elon announced Monday that Jared will be the travel commander and has already started hands-on training for the SpaceX Dragon capsule. Looks like he’ll be ready to bypass autopilot if necessary, but don’t worry … he’s an accomplished pilot with a flight speed record to his name.
That’s pretty cool … Jared takes 3 other civilians into space for a multi-day trip around the Earth, and he tells us how 2 lucky people can snag places on the capsule by donating to a big one. cause.
For now I
Saacman Rocketman tries to stay grounded and take mission preparations day in and day out – but you can tell he is chipping away at getting some serious pilots to boast.
Also obvious … Elon must really Trust him.
