That is really cool

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - When the latest Space-X capsule blasts into space Wednesday, it will carry four civilian crew members, including Louisiana native Hayley Arceneaux.

“I’ve been to five continents. I was hoping to see all the continents by the time I reached age 30. I did not think space would be added to that list,” Arceneaux said.

Man, they're covering all their "firsts" in one trip

They will orbit the earth for 3 days higher than the space station.

Space Station = 420KM

These guys 3 day trip = 575KM

This isn't Bezos and his low orbit penis.

Hayley’s mom lives in St. Francisville. Talked to her for a few minutes last Easter. So excited and proud.

I know it seems a bit silly, but I think it's pretty important. Space is no longer just a domain for the best among us (physical health included). As she pointed out in the Netflix documentary, she never would've been accepted into the astronaut corps with the device inside her leg.

Great cause and a great story. I entered the raffle earlier this year for a seat.

We're on the cusp of a commercial space industry where we'll have the first left handed Lutheran of German, French, and Norwegian decent or whatever ESPN-like "first" stat they can dig up

I was initially cynical about why she was on this.

But - Pediatric Cancer including treatment at St. Jude and then going to work at St Jude’s as a PA.

She is pretty inspiring.

quote:

But the doctors at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital saved her life, and now Arceneaux will be the first pediatric cancer survivor and first person with a prosthetic body part in space.

“Cancer made me who I am. But not just cancer, St. Jude,” Arceneaux said.

Now as a physician’s assistant at St. Jude, Arceneaux helps save other kids’ lives.

“I knew from when I was in treatment that all I wanted to do was work at St. Jude’s. When I got my dream job it was the happiest moment of my life and it’s the happiest thing that’s ever happened to me, it’s truly the biggest honor of my life, getting to work with these kids,” she said.

And the fact that the Inspiration 4 mission raises money and awareness of St. Jude makes the trip more special for Arceneaux, who will sit on the seat representing hope.

Her mom was an LSU KD. Haven't seen her in years but she was really cute and sweet back in the day. Her dad was the late Howard Arceneaux, long time LSU media guy.
