On her anticipated voyage before the end of this year as a “pioneer” of “space tourists,” 29-year-old Haile Arsino will become the youngest American astronaut and the first survivor of childhood cancer to set out on a trip to Earth’s orbit.
Because of her childhood bone cancer, Hayley still wears steel bars in her left foot, which until recently was enough to squander her chances of achieving her dream of going out into space.
However, the situation changed thanks to the young American billionaire Jared Isaacman, passionate about space exploration, who rented a Falcon 9 rocket at his own expense and decided to receive three other people on his upcoming space trip.
Haley was the first lucky one who was selected to participate in this unprecedented mission called “Inspiration 4”, which is scheduled to start at the end of this year.
The young woman received medical care during childhood at St. Jude Hospital in Memphis (Tennessee), which specializes in treating sick children, especially those with cancer. Isaacman hopes to raise two hundred million dollars for this foundation as part of the space mission.
“Until now, astronauts should have been physically healthy,” Haley explains. I did not belong to this category because of the operations I had undergone in my leg. One of the things that raises a real enthusiasm for me in this mission is that it opens the field of flights for everyone.
She added, “Being the youngest American to go to space is a great honor for me, but what I like most frankly is that I am the first survivor of childhood cancer to go to space, and what this carries with implications for children who are being treated for cancer.”
“I want to encourage my patients to dream big, without being bound by any boundaries,” Haley says. I really hope to show them that everything is possible. ”
The other two members of the mission will be a donor participating in the fundraising process for St. Jude Hospital, to be chosen by lot, and a person wishing to launch a “change the world” company that will be chosen by a special committee.
The two lucky ones will be announced next month, after which they will start training with Jared Isaacman and Hailey.
The latter states, “Initially, we will practice a centrifuge to prepare our body for the force of gravity” during the launch of the missile.
