The Inspiration4 crew receives their Astronaut Wings from SpaceX.
The four crew members of SpaceX’s Inspiration4 flight have received their astronaut wings.
Jared Isaacman, Hayley Arceneaux, Sian Proctor, and Chris Sembroski, the four crew members, were launched into orbit on September 15 and splashed down three days later.
As the first-ever all-civilian launch, the Inspiration4 mission made history. Arceneaux and Proctor, two of the ship’s crew men, created history in their own right. Hayley Arceneaux is the first and youngest American woman to go into space, as well as the first to do it wearing prosthetics.
Sian Proctor, on the other hand, is the world’s first black female spaceship pilot.
