NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — When the Genius 100 community was established in 2017, Japanese Astronaut Soichi Noguchi was “on board” to help. And now, three years later, we are so proud to congratulate Dr. Soichi Noguchi on his third mission aboard the SpaceX Crew Dragon spaceship.
On Sunday, as the world watched, Dr. Noguchi of Japan and three Americans, Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover and Shannon Walker blasted off from the Kennedy Space Station in Florida. His previous two missions were aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery in 2005 and a Russian Soyuz spacecraft for a 161-day stay on the ISS between 2009 and 2010. With his current mission, he will become only the third person to launch from Earth into orbit on three different types of spacecraft.
In addition to being a Japanese hero and brilliant, brave astronaut, Dr. Noguchi has also been part of another type of launch, that being the Genius 100 community. When the G100 was beginning to form in 2016, Noguchi’s efforts were instrumental in spearheading their first major initiative, the printing of a 3D publishing milestone, Genius: 100 Visions of the Future, in space. He helped to unveil this first-ever milestone at the ‘Celebrating a Century of Genius’ weekend event in Montreal, Canada in 2017, marking the official launch of the G100 global community.
The Genius 100 community looks forward to watching Dr. Noguchi, and the three others from the Crew Dragon along with the two Russians and one American they joined onboard the International Space Station, during their historic six-month adventure. At the end of its missions, the Crew Dragon deploys parachutes and then splashes down in water, just as in the Apollo era.
“We are so grateful to Soichi (Noguchi) for the profound impact he has had in development of the Genius 100 community,” states Ambassador Ido Aharoni, Co-Founder and Global Ambassador of G100. “We are so very proud of him for his many accomplishments and are thrilled to watch and applaud his historic journey. This has been such a challenging year but having something so exciting like this helps us to look to the future with renewed creativity, innovation and imagination.”
The Genius 100 Foundation, in addition to Dr. Noguchi, is composed of an astoundingly impressive community. As of 2020, the global non-profit organization’s group of Genius 100 Visionaries now includes a total of 16 Nobel Laureates.
Based in Toronto and New York, with a global footprint, Genius 100 Foundation is an active and engaged community of exceptionally imaginative and impactful human beings.
The Genius 100 Visionaries are comprised of an extraordinary group of 100 globally recognized, accomplished, compassionate minds. This group of global leaders, activists, innovators and influencers, in addition to 16 Nobel Laureates, includes Astronauts, an EGOT, Olympic Gold Medalists, Knight(s) of the British Empire, Global Teacher Prize, Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of France, Companion(s) of the Order of Canada, a former NASA Administrator, a World Chess Champion, Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada – and recipients of National Medals of Science, Humanities and Arts; Pulitzer Prize; Peabody Award; Albert Einstein Medal, and, unbelievably, many more accolades and honors.
Since the founding of Genius 100, with the passage of time, a few members of their incredibly talent-rich community have become Genius Inspiritus, they are The Honorable Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Sir Ken Robinson, Paul Allen – and Nobel Prize Laureates Shimon Peres and Harold Kroto.
The Genius 100 Foundation brings together Visionaries, philanthropic impact investors and its extended global community, collectively and in collaboration, to: re-imagine the future – implement creative initiatives to improve our world – raise the bar on what is achievable and make the impossible – possible.
Together with the entire Genius 100 Community around the globe, we congratulate “one of our own” Dr. Soichi Noguchi on his extraordinary accomplishments and his dedication to making the world a better place. He is an inspiration to so many – for so many reasons – we are thrilled to watch him inspire the next generation of geniuses.
