Elon Musk’s SpaceX will conduct a commercial spacewalk in the fourth quarter of 2022. The action will happen as a part of the Polaris Dawn program, billionaire Jared Isaacman paid for it. Great three flights will take place.

The first crew will include a former US Air Force pilot, two SpaceX engineers, and, of course, the billionaire. All these people will spend five days in orbit in order to test Starlink communications and do special medical research. The whole 5 days in the highest orbit the Crew Dragon has ever achieved.

To note, Crew Dragon ships used to go only to near-Earth height until that time. And the main task of the corporation was to deliver astronauts and NASA cargo to the International Space Station, but the last time SpaceX has begun to expand its opportunities. Also, the company develops a spacesuit for spacewalks.
