Global News published this video item, entitled “SpaceX launches 1st all-civilian crew into Earth orbit | FULL” – below is their description.
A quartet of amateur space travelers, led by the American founder and chief executive of e-commerce firm Shift4Payments Inc., Jared Isaacman, became the first all-civilian crew launched into Earth’s orbit on Wednesday evening.
The flight, with no professional astronauts accompanying SpaceX’s paying customers, is expected to last about three days from liftoff to splashdown in the Atlantic.
This marks the debut flight of SpaceX owner Elon Musk’s new orbital tourism business.
The mission, called Inspiration4, was conceived by Isaacman mainly to raise awareness and support for one of his favourite causes, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a leading pediatric cancer center in Mephis, Tennessee.
