WKBN 27 reports that the last two remaining seats went to Sian Proctor, a community college educator, and Chris Sembroski, former Air Force rocket launcher. Both are accompanied by flight sponsor Jared Isaacman. The passengers are expected to be in orbit three days later this fall.
Both new passengers, Proctor and Sembroski, have some form of appreciation or experience for space. Proctor applied three times for the NASA astronaut corps, while Sembrosi worked as a space repository advisor and volunteered for advocacy groups in space during his college years. Joining the two passengers is Hayley Arceneaux, who was selected for the voyage last month. Arceneaux is a medical assistant at St. Jude and was treated there for bone cancer as a child.
The mission was first announced in early February 2021 to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The official start date has not yet been set, but the mission is expected to take place in mid-September at the earliest.
