SpaceX, Isaacman unveil “Polaris,” world’s first private astronaut program

The billionaire entrepreneur who flew SpaceX’s first all-civilian mission to orbit last year has commissioned the company for three more missions, including the first crewed flight of Starship.

Jared Isaacman is working with SpaceX on the Polaris Program, named after the North Star, that more or less operates as a private crewed spaceflight program. Polaris’ first two missions are slated to fly on Crew Dragon capsules starting late this year followed by a third on Starship, the SpaceX vehicle that will eventually take humans to the moon and Mars.
