With the coronavirus pandemic forcing the cancellation of most graduate events, SpaceX’s plan is a fun offering for students in this most unusual of years.

SpaceX doesn’t say what will happen with the photo mosaic following launch — in other words, whether it will be jettisoned into space, placed in the ISS, or returned to Earth when the Crew Dragon comes back.

The commercial space transport company is inviting recent graduates — from kindergarten to graduate school — to submit a selfie to fly on America’s first human spaceflight in nearly a decade.

In similar efforts aimed at throwing the spotlight on graduates, Tim Cook, Bill Gates, and other famous folks recently recorded commencement speeches released as podcasts as the regular people-filled ceremonies have had to be cancelled because of the pandemic.
