The first opportunity asks competitors to start a store on the Shift 4 Shop eCommerce platform – Isaacman is the company’s CEO – and “post your inspirational business story on Twitter” to grab a seat representing prosperity.
“If you’ve ever hesitated to start an e-commerce business, this could be one of the best ways to grow your business,” Isaacman told Space Dot about the property seat, in a video interview.
The second opportunity is to donate to St. Jude – a Memphis-based hospital that treats children’s cancer patients for free – possibly to secure a seat representing gen generosity. The larger the donation amount the more entry into the contest. The amount listed is between ડો 10 for 100 entries) and $ 5,000 (for 10,000 entries), or you can customize your donation amount. Each level also receives benefits such as mission posters or vintage t-shirts.
“It’s not an auction,” Isaacman told Space.com about the generous meeting. “He’s not a rich man bidding million 50 million or 60 60 million for a seat. It’s a level playing field right now. So if you’re just thinking of donating for a wonderful cause – St. Go on. Give him a shot. “
The mission is announced as the first all-private crew orbital mission and does not involve any commercial astronauts, initiating efforts by SpaceX companies to promote space tourism. A handful of well-placed tourists have flown into space on government missions, and companies like Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic are working on spacecraft that could one day bring paid customers into subrobit.
