Provided By - Video Elephant on September 15, 2021
SpaceX’s Inspiration4 civilian crew have each been given a unique call sign during a special naming ceremony.
A call sign is a type of nickname given to astronauts and military pilots during their training.
The crew, their flight trainers and their family and friends were all part of the name selection process.
The first all-civilian spaceflight crew went through a lot of the same training exercises as astronauts.
This includes time in fighter jets as it put them in an environment similar to spaceflight.
Jared Isaacman already had the call sign “Rook” as he has flown fighter jets many times before.
Hayley Arceneaux’s call sign is “Nova”, Sian Proctor’s call sign is “Leo” and Chris Sembroski’s is “Hanks”.
