Kim Kardashian, Ciara, Yumi Nu and Maye Musk cover the 2022 issue of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit

Despite her dreams of going to space, Sarafina Nance never 

considered becoming a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model. 

A finalist in the SI Swim Search is the astrophysicist and analog astronaut. 

In the Dominican Republic, acclaimed SI photographer Yu Tsai photographed the 

Austin, Texas, native among thousands of submissions. It is expected that the  

winning rookie in the 2023 issue will be picked from the annual casting call. 

Her previous belief that she owned only one bathing suit is no slouch either.
