Canadian YouTuber Lands Interview with Billionaire Pilot of SpaceX Civilian Flight



The launch pad interview

A relatively new YouTube channel started earlier this month by Canadian Zachary Aubert, from Edmonton, Alberta, has already landed a huge exclusive interview.

Aubert’s space-related YouTube channel, known as The Launch Pad, chatted with Jared Isaacman from the upcoming SpaceX Inspiration4 civilian mission, set to take off later this year.

Isaacman is a billionaire and founder and CEO of Shift4 Payments. He will be piloting the Dragon launch later this year, while also donating three seats for others to join him in space. The Inspiration4 mission is to raise money for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, located in Memphis, Tennessee.

According to Global News, Aubert reached out to Isaacman on Twitter and email not expecting to receive a reply—then heard back within a few hours.

“Definitely (felt the) shock of, OK, they actually said yes,” Aubert told Global.

Isaacman chatted with Aubert for 30 minutes from the SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California. The video was posted two days after the Inspiration4 announcement on February 3. Check it out below:

Aubert says his next “dream guest” would be none other than SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.
