Billionaire’s ‘Polaris Program’ to set space records on SpaceX Dragon, Starship

The billionaire commander of the first “all-civilian” space mission has now filed a new flight plan, underwriting a series of three SpaceX launches designed to rapidly advance human spaceflight capabilities while also raising funds and awareness for causes here on Earth.

Jared Isaacman, the 39-year-old founder of Shift4, an online payment processing company, and the commander of last year’s Inspiration4 mission, revealed his “Polaris Program” on Monday (Feb. 14), a trio of commercial spaceflights to begin on SpaceX’s existing Dragon spacecraft as soon as November or December of this year and culminate in the first crewed launch of SpaceX’s new Starship in the years to come.
