SpaceX adds a news chapter to space history. SpaceX sent four civilian tourists into space via the Inspiresum 4 rocket. These people will stay in space for three days. It is the first non-professional space crew to go into Earth orbit. All four people have been sent into space from the Dragon capsule. Will orbit the Earth about 160 km above the International Space Station.
Special look at special flight
Inspiration 4, operated by tech billionaire Elon Musk’s SpaceX, launched its first all-civilian mission into orbit on Thursday. SpaceX’s charity-run mission Inspiration 4 took off at 8:02 pm. It is commanded by tech entrepreneur Jared Isaacman and is accompanied by medical officer Haley Arsinaux, a medical assistant and pediatric cancer at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, mission specialist Chris Sambrowski, Air Force veteran and aerospace data engineer, and mission pilot Dr. Sean Proctor, a geoscientist, entrepreneur and trained pilot has joined the team.
Flight of inspiration 4x
Tagging Inspiration 4X, SpaceX shared in a tweet, “Liftoff of Inspiration 4. Falcon 9 Go. Dragon Go.” NASA said in a tweet, “Congratulations, Inspiration 4. NASA to Kennedy for the first spaceflight Proud to provide the launchpad.” SpaceX is targeting a launch window of five hours. The crew will orbit Earth in SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule every 90 minutes with an optimized flight path.

New chapter of the world of space
The three-day mission will target an orbit of approximately 575 km, which will fly farther from Earth than any manned spacecraft since the Hubble Space Telescope repair mission. According to the Inspiration4 team, Dragon has a domed window, inspired by the cupola on the International Space Station, and will provide the crew with incredible views of Earth.
The Inspiration 4 mission marks SpaceX’s latest private astronaut mission. NASA Administrator Bill Nelson tweeted, “The Inspiration 4 launch reminds us of what can be achieved when we partner with private industry. Private The commercial capability to fly missions is the culmination of NASA’s vision with commercial crew.” CEO Musk met with the crew ahead of launch.
This is the goal of inspiration
Inspiration4 tweeted, “Thank you for coming to our hashtag inspiration4 crew before leaving for Launch Complex 39A.” Inspiration4 aims to inspire humanity and raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. During the day-long visit, the Inspiration4 crew will participate in a first-of-its-kind health research initiative to increase humanity’s knowledge on the effects of spaceflight on the human body. In addition, SpaceX, the Translational Research Institute for Space Health at Baylor College of Medicine ( TRISH) and Weill Cornell Medicine investigators will collect environmental and biomedical data and biological samples from four of Inspiration 4’s crew members before, during and after this historic spaceflight.
Earlier in July, Virgin Galactic’s billionaire CEO Richard Branson flew to the edge of space with three employees, including an Indian-origin employee, ushering in a new space tourism era. Their flight was about 86 kilometers above the Earth’s surface.
