Historic Mission Will Fly First Olympian and First Female Astronauts from the Caribbean to Space
Virgin Galactics seventh spaceflight and second commercial spaceflight, Galactic 02 will fly three private passengers to space, achieving several historical milestones and furthering Virgin Galactics mission of broadening access to space. VSS Unity will carry 80-year-old Jon Goodwin, Olympian and early Virgin Galactic ticket holder, as well as Keisha Schahaff and Anastatia Mayers, a Caribbean mother-daughter duo who won their seats in a draw that raised funds for non-profit Space for Humanity.
She could lose those piercings though.
When I was two years old, just looking up to the skies, I thought, How can I get there? But, being from the Caribbean, I didnt see how something like this would be possible. The fact that I am here, the first to travel to space from Antigua, shows that space really is becoming more accessible. I know I will be changed by my experience, and I hope I will be able to share that energy and inspire the people around me in my role as a life coach, a mother, and as an ambassador for our beautiful planet.
Antiguan to boot.
